Dozens of Cuban migrants landed in three separate boats in the Florida Keys on Sunday, days after more than 40 others arrived in the same area, local media reported.

Under an agreement with Cuba's communist government, the United States can force Cubans who are intercepted between the two nations to return home or go to a third country, though those who land on US soil are usually allowed to stay.The US Coast Guard earlier this year said it was concerned about a possible surge in Cuban migrants eager to flee.
