The Cayman Islands Customs and Border Control Service (CBC) responded to the arrival of twelve Cuban crew members, including a pregnant woman, on the shores of Watering Place, Cayman Brac in a rustic wooden boat, where, in addition to the plastic gallons for the water there are two inflated rooms in the truck as accessories, as seen in the photo published by the border force.
In the statement published by the Customs and Border Control Service, it is detailed that the Cubans disembarked at 12:30 am on December 6. The group consisted of nine men and three women, one of whom was pregnant.
Regarding the pregnant woman, the text reports that upon arrival she was transferred to Faith Hospital, for special care and evaluation by a group of doctors, after the tests that were done she was discharged. Migrants will generally be transferred by the CBC to Grand Cayman and housed in designated areas for this type of situation.
The Cayman Islands are a British overseas territory located in the Caribbean Sea, located between Cuba and the coast of Mexico, northwest of Jamaica. The archipelago is made up of three islands; Grand Cayman (the largest), Cayman Brac and Lesser Cayman.
As a result of the exodus of Cubans to various destinations in Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States, many migrants have arrived on these shores over the years.
On September 22, four Balbal men arrived in Spot Bay in a boat and were detained. The CBC at that time assured that the four rafters will be processed according to the protocols of that entity. This year, the return of people from the islands continues.
Many Cubans go to sea to escape the needs and misery that dominates the Caribbean island. Although most of them headed for the United States, many others were diverted due to lack of experience at sea, due to severe bad weather or simply to try to settle in other countries with a better future.
