US Coast Guard To Cubans In Crisis: "Please Don't Take To The Sea"

As unprecedented, large-scale protests in Cuba driven by economic instability and food and fuel shortages also amid a deeply mismanaged pandemic response continue, the US Coast Guard has a message for Cubans wishing to flee the increasingly chaotic Communist-ruled island: don't come.

"Please don’t take to the sea," Rear Admiral Eric C. Jones said in a statement. "The Coast Guard along with our local, state and federal partners are monitoring any activity" that looks suspicious or unsafe in the Florida straits "including unpermitted vessel departures from Florida to Cuba."

But the words also appear aimed at anti-Communist "freedom" networks in Florida. The warning was issued Monday night amid declarations by Cuban-American activist groups which have a large and very visible presence in south Florida that they plan to travel in boats to "supply" and "support" protesting Cubans.
