KEY WEST — A group of 22 Cuban migrants showed up at the Key West
Airport early Thursday morning, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office
reported in an e-mail alert.

The group was in good , MSO spokeswoman Becky Herrin.

The group included men, women and children of varying ages, from the
very young to elderly, according to Airport Security Director Jerome
Fain. He said they claimed to have traveled to the United States on a
raft made of "buckets and bolts". But no such craft has been found.

The group was taken by to the Monroe County Detention Center on
Stock Island, and were turned over to federal Border Patrol agents.

Under the country's wet foot- dry foot rule for Cubans, most or all of
the migrants will probably be allowed to stay in the United States.
