Cuban Migrants Intercepted in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Authorities detained nine undocumented Cuban migrants whose boat ran aground on the coast of the southeastern state of Yucatan, Mexico’s National Institute of Migration (INM) said in a statement.

Police and soldiers patrolling the streets of the port town of El Cuyo spotted the Cubans – eight men and a woman – and contacted the INM.

The migrants told INM agents they spent 14 days marooned at sea after their boat broke down en route to the United States.

Members of the group were suffering from dehydration and severe sunburn and one injured his arm while trying to repair the boat’s motor.

INM personnel provided the migrants with food, water and medical attention, according to the official statement.

The man with the arm injury was taken to a hospital in Merida, while the other Cubans are at an INM facility in the same city, where they are receiving assistance in making contact with their families and Cuban consular officials.

The detained migrants told the INM that five other people aboard the boat had also reached Mexican territory, the statement said.

The INM’s standard practice is to repatriate undocumented Cuban migrants to Cuba.
