Austin

Miami is a international city in a globalized world.
For any position in any international city of the world, you need from 2 to 3 languages.

Economics
The median household income for Cuban Americans is $36,671, a figure higher than other Hispanic groups, but lower than for non-Hispanic whites.
In contrast, US-born Cuban Americans have a higher median income than even non-Hispanic whites, $50,000 as compared to $48,000 for non-Hispanic whites.[17]

Education

25% of Cuban Americans have a college education, about twice the average of all other Hispanic groups, and lower than that of non-Hispanic whites, of which 30% are college graduates. [18]
However, 39% of US-born Cuban Americans have a college degree or higher, as compared to only 30% of non-Hispanic whites, and 12% for all other Hispanic groups. [19]

Nobody dies of hunger there, and they are all dress up for the "fiesta".
So Cuba is packed with people and cities in which nobody works and they all survive and have fun. One of the greatest mysteries in the history of mankind.
Of course, the Cuban that goes to Miami knows he's got to work and not steal in the job.
Freeloaders prefer to be in "misiones" working for Chavez and preserving their rights and properties in Cuba than in Miami.
Oh please Leo,

In Cuba nobody knows about the outside world, what they know is from the Hollywood movies, their families' picture from Hialeah Sedano, Dolphin mall and the fairy tales made up by the Cuban American.

This may be off topic but: When do you sleep?

Not exactly. Nobody in the entire country cares one bit about the Hispanic/Latino phenomenon they ignore it and consider it a weird political reverse xenophobic Anit-American situation.

The only "Cubans" that you may say "scared the hell" out of anybody was perhaps the wave sent over of alleged released prisoners and mentally ill people as it was told to us back then....and it was not a matter of "scaring' but INFURIATING the CITIZENS here that politics was dictating our immigration procedures to the exclusion of non Hispanics.

Those of us who had immigrant relatives DEPORTED out of here for simple ridiculous reasons have no empathy/sympathy support or interest in anything Hispanic to us it's like a pocket of undesirables.

DEPORTED ....such as my brother in law and cousin in MEDICAL SCHOOL HERE....getting caught WORKING in a GREEK restaurant/nightclub. The restaurant was a fully Greek speaking/cuisine/entertainment... and all the customers were Greek with hardly ANY Americans) when not a single non-Greek citizen could ever do that job.

So you got what you wanted from your politicialns in Miami. Dirty 1980's money, and illiterate, radical, Anti American third world behaviors including REFUSAL to even act like they're in the USA. Not to mention the "infighting" drama of which Hispanic group is "smarter, whiter, more educated, more lazy or not, has more Euro blood, worthy" and all the nonsense that goes on in that demographic.

For them Miami might has its cons but in their mind its pros seem to overcome them greatly.

Ever watch that documentary called "Balseros"? There's a scene where the Cuban hubby tells the wife that he is working, working day and night - lol and she is like...huh?

Let's face facts, immigrants coming to Miami and planning to stay in Miami don't even *need* to learn English. While immigrants in other cities in the United States and across the world have usually assimilated and learned the main language, Miami has become a mecca for non-English speakers from Central/South America. I don't see this changing anytime soon and in fact, aside from Miami Beach, Miami proper will probably become 90-95% Hispanic, while immigrants in other cities such as Los Angeles eventually completely assimilate and use English as their first (if not only) language.

Leo:

I do not consider Miami to be an international city. An international city is truly diverse, has a lot of international or blue chip companies based there, has decent mass transit, parks and world class museums, art galleries and libraries and is generally a tolerant, non-insular and outward looking place to live. Miami has none of these things to offer -- heck, even the science museum is 25 years out of date. In terms of being an "international" city even here in the US, Miami doesn't even make the top 10 list, IMO.
