Most Cubans are not illegal..if they can make it to US soil they are given amnesty...if the Coast Gurad intercepts them on the sea then no they are returned to Cuba besides of which I have no beef with Cubans..they are different

Before 1985 there was no limit on how many Cubans could enter the U.S. if they went about it through normal immigration procedures. This was also true for other groups of immigrants as well. Unlike other groups who came into the country undocumented, Cubans were granted a special status which made it easier to gain residency. Others had to prove that they were fleeing for political reasons so that they could be granted the status of a refugee while Cubans were automatically given refugee status along with other privileges. Some of these special privileges were introduced in 1966 and included gaining permanent residency if the Cuban had been in the U.S. for at least a year. Even if the Cuban had stayed longer than the time period allowed on the visitor visas, they were still granted permanent residency.

History of Cuban Immigration to the United States

And I have no problem with this because...................THEY ARE LEGAL

yes I did.....My Grand Mother lived in Union City back in the 60's & 70's when I was growing up
Many many cubans who had fled Cuba & Castro..very different culture and make up from other latinos..lived there. One of my good friends family fled Cuba, her father had been a lawyer there

I hope one day in my lifetime the sanctions against Cuba are lifted and I can visit the island

I'm just going to retreat and observe, for I feel there will be nothing constructive/good on debating the "Cubans are different from other latinos" statement.
