Abstract

Relations between Cuba and the United States have ebbed and flowed between outright hostility and friendship. Recently, major steps have been taken by both countries to put the Cold War past behind them and work toward a sustainable relationship for the future. As economic and political relations between the two neighbors improve, it is imperative that immigration policy be part of the transitional process. Cubans have enjoyed special immigration status for half a century largely as a result of the Cold War. The process of economic normalization must include a normalization of immigration policy, phasing-out the unnecessary and unfair favoritism that is a vestige of a long-gone era of our history.
