MIAMI (AP) -- Officials say 25 Cuban migrants have recently arrived in the Florida Keys in three separate groups.
  
The Miami Herald reports that the first arrival occurred Sunday and the other two occurred Monday morning.
  
U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports that 13 men arrived Sunday in Key Largo on a single-engine rustic vessel.

Officials say nine Cuban men in a similar vessel arrived early Monday morning at a north Key Largo community. Several hours later, three men came to shore at a Key Colony Beach community.
  
Since all the migrants made it to dry land, they will likely be allowed to stay in the United States under the so-called "wet-foot, dry-foot" policy.
