Anyone know about Cuban immigration?

Hey guys-

For one of my classes I'm supposed to present a powerpoint on Cuban immigration. One of the parts of this project is supposed to be on future/current legislation that will affect future immigrants from Cuba. I have searched a lot on the web and can't seem to find anything for this category.

If anyone can point me in the right direction or knows of something that would fit in this category I would appreciate it if you shared it with me.

Thanks to all that help!

they run away from their dictator
they swim or use rafts and there are some people who stay at the beaches at night that help them when they arrive eventhough its illegal they do it out of the kindness of their hearts...

when they hit land they dont have to go back.. but if they are in the water and coast guard or whatever national guard find them then they are sent back to Cuba and usually tortured or killed or end up havng a horrible life..

Florida is usually their ideal place for the fact that it is only 90 miles.

hope this helps... =]

Illegal Immigrant Olympics. Only if you lose you get

Coast Guard are the Ref's - if they catch a few bad ones, they get thrown back. One might have sympathy for these unfortunate folks, but there are plenty of legal Cuban immigrants...I have no sympathy for those who break the law.

Put that in your report

No, I already know about the wet/dry feet laws, but I was wondering if there is anything in the works RIGHT NOW(meaning they are debating it currently) in the house, senate or even president Bush that would affect CUBAN immigrants. Thanks for the replies guys.

Well lets see:

1) Cuban immigration is a now defunct department of the Democratic Republic of Cuba which was disbanded because of a lack of candidates to migrate to Cuba from other countries;

2) Cuban emigration is the sucking sound one hears when on a Cuban seashore comming from all of the boats and some cars, trying desperately to leave Cuba;

3) US immigration from Cuba is what happens when the Coast Guard does not catch them on the watta;

4) Cuban immigrants are one of the pillars of South Florida.

5) As Driv3r said, Cuban man is straight (except perhaps for those who are not).

There, you have your presentation courtesy e90post.
