Cubans land in Brac

Immigration and police officials say 47 Cuban migrants landed on the Brac Thursday afternoon.

The Cuban nationals were moved to the Immigration Detention Centre on Grand Cayman and will be repatriated to Cuba.

The migrants landed in a wooden boat Thursday afternoon, though there’s no word why they decided to come ashore.

Late last month almost 50 Cuban migrants were sent back by plane to Havana. They had arrived in four different groups in June. Cuban migrants are permitted to pass through Cayman waters, but those who land in the Cayman Islands are detained and repatriated to Cuba.
