“The Coast Guard repatriated 34 survivors of a speedboat that capsized last weekend on its way to the United States from Cuba. Two women, Luisa Cardentey and Isabel Machado, died when they became trapped under the 27-foot boat Saturday night. Their relatives will pursue legal action against the U.S. despite the repatriations, said the relatives' attorney, Matthew Archambeault.” (Houston Chronicle, Monday)
