The departure of Cubans from the island is more every day because the Antilleans are tired of living in a country where they do not have food or basic services, for this reason they decide to risk the dangers of the sea and escape from the island, But also the illusion of reaching an area with better opportunities and working and helping my family.
This weekend, the United States Coast Guard repatriated 152 Cuban rafters to the island who had been quarantined all week.

In the Coast Guard’s report, they noted that arrests of illegal Cuban immigrants occurred primarily on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
On the other hand, last Friday another 10 Cuban rafters were arrested, but this time, in Mexico.
Antilleans who tried to reach North American territory by fleeing misery on the island were intercepted by Mexican authorities north of Cozumel, specifically on the Isla de la Pasión in the state of Quintana Roo.
