The Interior Ministry reported that on January 21, the Coast Guard (SGC) deported 83 irregular migrants through the port of Orozco in Bahía Honda, Artemisa province.
The decision in this sense is in line with the migration agreements between Cuba and the United States, the organization added in an official statement.
He added that most of these people (60 men, 16 women and seven minors) were from Artemisa, Havana and Matanzas, who had participated in four illegal exits from the country and were intercepted at sea by the SGC.
The information from the returnees has been expanded; two of them are available to the investigating authorities because they are being investigated for suspected perpetrators of serious crimes.
With this operation, 10 operations will be carried out via this route from the US, of which 1,271 will be returned, he said.
However, he continued, if they were added to the list of those returned to Cuba from the Bahamas and Cayman Islands, there would be 13 such operations so far in 2023 involving 1,416 irregular migrants.
The Cuban authorities have reiterated their commitment to regular, safe and orderly migration, insisting on the dangers and life-threatening conditions posed by the illegal exit from the country by sea and the irresponsible involvement of innocent minors, he finally confirmed.
