vessels to Bahia de Cabañas on Friday.

south of Key West, Coast Guard officials said.

Once aboard the Coast Guard cutter, the migrants were given , water

and medical attention..

"U.S. Coast Guard policy is to deter and respond to dangerous, and

maritime migration by intercepting vessels pursuing perilous and

illegal voyages," said Capt. Brendan McPherson, Seventh Coast Guard

District chief of enforcement. "We continue to maintain a robust

presence of cutters and aircraft throughout the Caribbean to prevent

illegal migration and migrant smuggling activities."
