The Border Guard of the Castro dictatorship sank a boat of Cubans trying to flee the island: there are 5 dead

At least five Cubans, including a minor, died this Saturday after the collision of a Cuban Border Guard vessel with a speedboat from Miami, in which more than twenty people were trying to leave the island. This was reported by the regime’s Ministry of the Interior in a note broadcast on Cuban television.

The boat was carrying 23 people and capsized after the impact of the border guard boat. As a result, a man, three women and a girl died.

The sinking occurred north of Bahía Honda (Artemisa province), when the boat was transporting rafters to the United States in the midst of a migratory wave that in just one year, after the popular rebellion of July 11, has caused the exodus of at least 220,000 Cubans.

The United States Embassy in Havana offered its condolences for the incident through its Twitter account.

“The United States sends our condolences to the families of the Cubans who died today in an accident north of Bahía Honda. As we expand safe and legal pathways for migration, we warn against attempting dangerous and sometimes fatal irregular migration,” the tweet read.

The increase in repression, the great shortage of food, medicine and fuel, combined with the frequent power outages, have triggered Cuban migration.

Between October 2021 and August 2022, nearly 200,000 Cubans were intercepted by U.S. authorities, either crossing the U.S.-Mexico border by land or crossing into Florida by sea, according to Customs and Border Protection figures. .

In the same period last year, US immigration authorities detained some 30,000 Cubans.

Cuba does not accept the deportation of Cuban nationals from the United States, and most migrants are released after entering the United States illegally to await asylum hearings.

At the end of September, a boat with 27 Cuban rafters capsized near the Florida Keys, while Hurricane Ian moved towards the west coast of the state.

Four of the rafters managed to swim to Stock Island and report it to US authorities. The Coast Guard later rescued another five.

Some of the survivors of the shipwreck told local media that of the six days they were at sea under extreme conditions, two days and two nights were spent 13 miles off the coast of Cuba and they received no help.
