More Cubans in custody

Another 27 Cubans migrants arrived off Grand Cayman’s North West Point by boat on Friday.

They are now being held in a government facility, according to an Immigration Department spokesperson.

Identification and other details are being taken from them so they can be processed for repatriation to Cuba.

This brings the total number of Cuban migrants being dealt with by Immigration to 70. All are being processed for repatriation.

The latest arrivals are made up of men, women and children, the youngest of which was thought to be about three, said the spokesperson.

The Immigration Department’s Enforcement Section reported that one of the persons on the boat needed immediate medical attention, which required surgery, and has since been released.

Two children in the group also required medical attention over the weekend but were later released with medication.
