Huge Wave of Cuban Immigrants Coming to the U.S.


Since 2013, the relation between Cuba and the United States has improved dramatically, ending the 50-year-old hostility between the two countries. Cubans are trying to take advantage of the new relationship by setting sail and heading north.

About 100,000 have abandoned their life in Cuba and made it to American soil either in a raft or going through Mexico. They’ve left family behind promising they’ll come back for them.

Such was the case for the Cardenas men, a father, his son and his son-in-law who jumped on their metal raft and 10 days of torture-at-sea later made it to Florida and began working almost immediately.

These men are only three of thousands now living in the states and sending billions of dollars back to Cuba. Most are still waiting for the day they reunite with their families.
