MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Coast Guard crews repatriated 14 Cuban migrants  to Bahia de Cabañas, Cuba, since Tuesday.

The repatriation are a  result of two separate law enforcement cases.

According to the Coast Guard, one of their ships interdicted a rustic vessel on Saturday in the Florida Straits with nine Cuban migrants attempting to enter the United States.

On Monday, another Coast Guard vessel rescued five Cuban migrants from a homemade raft off Key West.

All of the migrants were safely brought aboard the cutters, given food, water, shelter, and basic medical attention.
