The landings came days after news broke the U.S. may start talks with the communist nation.

Two separate groups of migrants from Cuba landed in South Florida on Sunday, authorities said.

The first group of 10 migrants made landfall in the Florida Keys early Sunday. They were taken into custody and are the subjects of an investigation, Chief Patrol Agent Walter Slosar of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a tweet.

The second group of six migrants swam ashore near Golden Beach in Miami-Dade County several hours later after their vessel capsized. There were no reported injuries, Slosar said.

    115,000 Cubans have arrived in the past six months. The numbers are approaching that of the Mariel boat lift.

    Political hack DeSantis is only interested in illegal immigrants coming across the border with Texas.

      If JFK had not bailed on the Bay of Pigs patriots 61 years ago we would not be in this mess. Feckless Democrat foreign policy in spades: lousy planning, insufficient resources, spineless leadership, liberal Republicans and snowflake Democrats. Result, people seeking freedom swim through shark-filled water today to reach out shores, and people like the above writer sit in their cabanas sucking their thumbs. And then you have Biden in Afghanistan. God in Heaven do you have to surrender your testicles to become like them?
