Cuban Boaters on Brac

This boat, carrying 19 Cubans, ran aground off Cayman Brac on 7 October.

Department of Immigration officials have intercepted 19 male Cuban migrants after their boat ran aground off Cayman Brac on evening, Friday, 7 October.

The migrants are being temporarily housed under immigration control, and several government and private sector agencies are helping meet their immediate needs.

It is anticipated that the group will be transferred to Grand Cayman early next week for processing.

No Cuban boaters have been intercepted in Cayman waters since March.
