KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) – Police in Key West say Cuban migrants landed early
Wednesday at a attraction marking the southernmost point in the
continental United States.

Officer Matthew Hansell reported that three men and three women tied
their fishing boat to the red, black and yellow buoy where streams of
people pose for pictures daily.

He said none required medical attention after coming ashore. Immigration
authorities were notified, but under the federal “wet foot, dry foot”
policy, Cubans who reach U.S. soil are generally allowed to remain in
this country. Those intercepted at sea usually go back.

Groups of migrants from the Caribbean regularly come ashore in Florida.
One Tuesday, two dozen Cubans landed on an island in Miami-Dade County.
