MONROE COUNTY, Florida – The U.S. Border Patrol says that 22 Cubans arrived in Dry Tortugas National Park in the Florida Keys on Thursday morning.
Chief Patrol Agent Walter N. Slosar, who is in charge of the agency’s Miami sector, tweeted that there were 19 men and 3 women in the group of migrants.
He said that the group took a simple boat to get to the national park on the westernmost tip of the Keys.
Slosar showed pictures of the refugees being helped onto a boat run by the National Park Service.
Early in January, the park had to close because almost 300 people came to the islands in just two days.
