Cuba receives irregular migrants from the Bahamas (+ Video) ›World› Granma

In compliance with the migratory agreements between Cuba and the Bahamas, on a flight from that Caribbean island, 61 Cuban irregular migrants intercepted at sea landed in Havana, intending to reach the United States.

It is the sixth migratory operation of this type carried out in 2021, with the return of 184 people, who, encouraged by the benefits of the Cuban Adjustment Act, aspired to set foot on US soil.

The group, made up of four women and 57 men, received medical attention to detect COVID-19 infections and were later transferred to their provinces of origin.

According to Colonel Lázaro Delgado Chaple, second head of the Directorate of Identification, Immigration and Aliens, to date 1,255 undocumented Cubans have been returned in 60 bilateral operations with Mexico, the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas.

He warned about the danger of this type of crossing, with the use of rustic boats, reasons why Cuba advocates an orderly migration.

He explained that the increase in this type of illicit activity occurs due to the US incentive for Cuban migrants, and due to the complex situation present in the country due to the intensification of the blockade imposed by the United States.

These extraterritorial measures include carrying out immigration procedures for Cubans in third countries, who must incur additional expenses for food, transportation and accommodation, due to the partial closure of the embassy in Havana since 2017.

All of this complicates the normal regular migration process for Cubans and is added that the White House government constantly violates the agreements on this issue.
