DHS is working with our partners to support the Haitian and Cuban people. The Coast Guard, along with our state, local, and federal partners, are monitoring any activity that may indicate increases in unsafe and irregular maritime migration in the Florida Straits. Including unpermitted vessel departures from Florida to Cuba.
The time is never right to attempt migration by sea. To those who risk their lives doing so, this risk is not worth taking. Allow me to be clear. If you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States. Homeland Security Task Force– Southeast headed by the Coast Guard’s 7th District Command is responsible for the DHS response to a maritime migration. This task force has been in place for more than 18 years. And it exists to prevent and respond to maritime migration in the Caribbean.
Here’s hoping that these little platoons do the job that the US government should be doing (translated):-
“There is too much pressure. Police sent by the communists to confront people who are asking for freedom. That is a country where people have no hope of any kind. People are making a peaceful protest and they are responding by repressing. We can’t take it anymore, it’s time to go and fight with our people. I hope the United States understands that I am going to defend the town where I was born, ” Alejandro Morúa, a Habanero who has lived in Miami for 13 years , told Infobae who today gets on one of the boats that are leaving the Pelican marina in Miami, heading to the island where he was born.
