Judge releases Cuban refugees
A group of Cuban refugees was released, a day after landing, some for the second time in a year, at a derelict bridge in the Florida Keys that authorities initially said wasn’t U.S. soil.
Among them was 14-year-old Osniel Hernandez. In January, the boy and his father, Marino Hernandez, were among 15 immigrants who were sent back to Cuba because U.S. officials said the abandoned bridge they’d reached didn’t count as American territory.
But a federal judge ruled against the Department of Homeland Security’s decision.
