Cuban migration to US skyrockets after bilateral thaw

  • The number of Cubans migrating to the US has skyrocketed in the last few months following the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries at the end of last year, according to the Pew Research Center. According to figures submitted by US Customs and Border Protection, during the first nine months of the 2015 fiscal (October 2014 to June 2015), 27,296 Cubans entered the US, the Center said on Wednesday. This is a 78 percent increase over the same period last year, when 15,341 Cubans entered the US and is well above the total entries recorded for the full year in 2013, 2012 and 2011. (Source: IANS)
