Cuban refugees who swam ashore early Monday morning near Port Royal are escorted onto a bus next to the City of Naples Police and Emergency Services Department. Twenty-nine Cuban refugees were being transported to Pembroke Pines Homeland Security Substation near Miami and will likely be allowed to remain in the United States under the country's wet-foot-dry foot policy. Under the policy, Cubans who reach U.S. soil generally are allowed to stay in the country. If they are intercepted before reaching land, they are returned to Cuba.
