U.S. Border Patrol agents are investigating the arrival of four migrants
on Virginia Key Tuesday morning.

Officials received reports from Miami police at about 10:20 a.m. that
four migrants, one women and three men, arrived at 3709 Rickenbacker
Causeway in a "rustic vessel," said Todd Bryant, the division chief of
the Miami Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol. It is unknown if any of them
are injured.

Local 10 reported that the group came from central Cuba and some have
friends and family in the South Florida area.

Bryant said the last migrant arrival in the area was on Fisher Island
July 22 when 20 Haitian migrants were smuggled onto Fisher Island on a
"go-fast vessel." The migrants and the smuggler were all arrested.
