Twenty-four Cubans migrants arrived in Cayman over the last two days in two separate incidents, Immigration Department Officials report. Twelve opted to continue their journey. The twelve migrants - nine males and three females - who decided to continue their journey, arrived yesterday at Rum Point in Grand Cayman. They are awaiting calmer weather in order to depart. The remaining twelve Cuban migrants were unable to continue their journey due to a damaged vessel and bad weather. Their boat was discovered at Salt Rock Dock in Little Cayman at 1.30am this morning. Immigration officials said that the ten males and two females all appeared to be in good health. These migrants are being processed, following which they will be transported to the Immigration Detention Centre to await repatriation.
