There is more than one way to skin a cat, so the saying goes. On Saturday, Two Cuban migrants landed at a Florida airport before being taken into U.S. Border Patrol Custody.

According to Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the pair landed at Key West International Airport on a motorized hang glider at approximately 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

There were no serious injuries reported.

Deputies say both were turned over to the custody of the U.S. Border Patrol.

In January, more than 160 refugees landed in the Middle and Upper Keys, as well as 300 on the Marquesas Keys and at Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas. But not by plane or hand glider.

The Sheriff’s Office was told at the time by the U.S. Border Patrol that some migrant landings may have to wait for federal resources to arrive until the following day, aggravating the mass migration crisis in the Keys. This federal failure is creating a humanitarian crisis.

“This shows a lack of a working plan by the federal government to deal with a mass migration issue that was foreseeable,” said Sheriff Rick Ramsay.

If residents see an arrival occurring, they should notify the Sheriff’s Office and provide a location.
