More than 100 Cuban migrants have arrived in the Florida Keys in a dozen landings in just the past two days, officials said Friday.
The 12 different migrant landings throughout the Florida Keys in the past 48 hours have led to the arrest of 108 Cuban migrants, according to U.S. Border Patrol officials.
On Thursday, officials said there were four separate migrant landings with dozens of Cuban migrants arriving in Marathon and in the Lower Keys. All were arrested by the Border Patrol.
It is unclear if the migrants that were detained this week will be repatriated back to Cuba.
Earlier this week, U.S. Coast Guard officials in Miami spoke out asking family members to discourage dangerous sea voyages by relatives in Cuba and other countries.
