Cuban Migrants Abandoned in Belize, Honduras

Diario Yucatn, Posted: Oct 27, 2008

CHETUMAL, Quintana Roo. -- As Mexico tightens new immigration from Cuba, returning intercepted Cubans who attempt to cross the Yucatan Channel, traffickers are now abandoning Cubans along the shores of Belize and Honduras. On Friday, 10 Cubans who entered Mexico from Honduras were abandoned and told they had reached the U.S.-Mexico border -- when in fact they were in Bacalar, a small town between Cancun and Mexico's border with Belize. Four of the Cubans were in critical condition, suffering from exposure and dehydration, and were detained. The men were Rafael Gonzlez Vega, 30, Sebastin Garca Rodrguez, 24, and two brothers: ngel Ernesto and Juan Carlos Bejarano Morales, 44 and 46. The men are requesting to be sent to hospitals in Miami where they plan to seek political asylum.
