Cubans Still Trying to Reach the USA

International press reports have shed light on the silent emigration of Cubans abroad (the magnitude of which is still unknown), amidst a tough economic landscape in the country and an increase in political tensions with the US government.

Several media outlets have reported the presence of hundreds of Cuban immigrants in different Central American countries, who set off on their journey to ultimately settle down elsewhere, especially in the US.

And, this comes in spite of the “Wet-foot/Dry-foot” policy being revoked in January 2017 by then US president Barack Obama (2009-2017), which benefitted Cuban citizens giving them the opportunity to seek asylum and even permanent residency, as soon as they set foot on US soil.
