“We cannot stress enough how dangerous these voyages can be in unpredictable seas,” said Lt. Cmdr. Mark Cobb, Seventh District enforcement officer. “Coast Guard crews will interdict migrant voyages and send them back to their country of origin.”

Since Oct, 1, 2020, Coast Guard crews have interdicted 813 Cubans compared to:

  • 5,396 Cuban Migrants in Fiscal Year 2016
  • 1,468 Cuban Migrants in Fiscal Year 2017
  • 259 Cuban Migrants in Fiscal Year 2018
  • 313 Cuban Migrants in Fiscal Year 2019
  • 49 Cuban Migrants in Fiscal Year 2020

Once aboard a Coast Guard cutter, all migrants receive food, water, shelter and basic medical attention. Throughout the interdiction, Coast Guard crew members were equipped with personal protective equipment to minimize potential exposure to any possible case of COVID-19.
