Cubans Now Invading Florida By Air; Cuban Migrants in Custody After Flying Almost 90 Miles to US on Hang Glider

Watch: Cubans Now Invading Florida By Air
Thousands of Cuban immigrants have arrived in the Florida Keys by boat in recent months. To address the surge, the state of Florida and the US Border Patrol have increased ground personnel. However, it now seems that migrants are turning to motorized hang gliders.
Chief Patrol Agent Walter Slosar tweeted over the weekend that two Cuban immigrants were taken into custody after landing a powered hang glider at the Key West International Airport.

Cuban migrants in custody after flying almost 90 miles to US on hang glider:
At least two Cuban migrants were handed over to U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Saturday after they landed in Florida on a motorized hang glider.
The pair used the glider to travel roughly 90 miles from the communist island nation to the United States, according to a report.
They arrived at Key West International Airport around 10:30 a.m., according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, before being turned over to Border Patrol agents.
"This is not a typical event," Monroe County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Adam Linhardt said. "But it's not completely unusual." --->WATCH and READ MORE HERE
