Sources are saying that more than 4,400 migrants have come to Florida via Haiti and Cuba since August 2022. The economic and political condition of those countries was critical so they just arrived in Florida. But there are no diplomatic relations between Washington and Havana. So, now the government of the United States is facing problems in sending migrants back to their homes.
Those migrants detained at sea have already been sent back home because Cuba will take them back to shelter.
