Another set of Cuban Refugees has made a landing on the shores of Ambergris Caye, this time around in the early morning hours of Wednesday, December 29, 2010. The San Pedro Police Department has confirmed that there are a total of seven Cubans detained at the Police Department, both male and female, that are pending processing by the immigration department.

The Cuban refugees have been attended by a doctor and declared to be in good health. The last time Cuban refugees made landfall on Ambergris Caye was in 2008 when there were three separate cases of landings in a time span of four months. More information on this latest case coming soon.

    What a horrific but courageous journey. I hope they stay.

    The seven Cuban immigrants were set free from jail yesterday, Thursday, December 30. Their makeshift vessel was held together by tar and powered by a converted car engine - which had broken down. The vessel was repaired by San Pedro residents and the Department of Immigration ruled that since they were only on the island because their engine broke down, there is no reason for them to be held in Belize and sent them on their way.
