Sunday Respite: Cuban Music for our newest ‘refugees’

Here they come. Open the gates. Tens of thousands of Cuban ‘refugees.’ This should change Florida and Texas voting patterns big time. Just watch them hop on the next available plane or boat. All are eligible for ‘refugee’ status.

Cuban Refugee Adjustment Act

The Cuban Refugee Adjustment Act, as the name suggests, helps make it easier for Cuban citizens to escape Cuba and get permanent residence in the United States. Any Cuban citizen who has been inspected, admitted or paroled into the United States can apply for a Green Card after living in the United States for one year. The spouse and young children of Cuban citizens can use this law to get a Green Card, even if they are not Cuban citizens themselves. Someone who was born in Cuba but becomes a citizen elsewhere can get a Green Card under this law.

Furthermore, a Cuban who has had a family based petition approved can be paroled into the United States while he or she is waiting for a Green Card. The United States government also runs a lottery that allows Cuban citizens to migrate to the U.S.


If a Cuban citizen cannot manage to take advantage of the Cuban Refugee Adjustment Act, he or she can still apply for asylum. There are many human rights abuses in Cuba that would make people afraid to return to or remain in Cuba.
The U.S. State Department lists the principal human rights abuses in Cuba as “abridgement of the right of citizens to change their government; government threats, intimidation, mobs, harassment, and detentions to prevent citizens from assembling peacefully.”

According to reports, it was common for government officials to detain people for political reasons, and prisoners were often harassed and tortured. Free speech is only allowed to the extent that is supports the government and socialism; anyone who speaks out against either can be sent to jail. If people assemble to protest, the government typically organizes mobs to attach protestors. While the Cuban president’s daughter, Mariela Castro, has spoken out in favor of the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, activists report that discrimination against LGBT people is common.

If you are Cuban and you are interested in obtaining permanent residence in the United States, New York Human Rights Committee may be able to help you. Call us at +1 (800) 560-1768 today. We are available 24/7.

    The CRA was enacted in the 60’s, and resulted in some great people coming here, opening businesses and voting conservative. It’s their children who turn liberal Democrat…

    I spent many years all over Latin America, so I am somewhat of an aficionado of the culture and the music. Sadly, I must confirm what petermc3 says. Rap and the gansta culture have indeed infected our neighbors to the South an in the Caribbean. We gripe about them coming across our borders, but if you travel around down south, you will see that our cultural sewer is poisoning their societies.

    The extreme gang problems of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala all have roots in the US, specifically LA Gangs.

      SF has it right. I saw first hand what an ambitious, religious people with an almost unmatchable work ethic was a shot in the arm that places like Hudson County, NJ needed and welcomed. The 60’s exodus of Cubans to the U.S. was positive on alkst every count. On the other hand the 80 Marielle Boat Lift showed the dark side of immigration with Fidel sucker punching our worst president behind Wilson and Obama; all democrats! Of course these days we welcome with open arms criminals, the infected, the insane, the gangs and the terrorists.

      And unlike american born blacks who have morphed into Africans, naturalized and american born Cubans here for years are Americans because that’s how they see themselves and all Americans see them.

      I agree as well. I have friends who came with the Peter Pan move. The problem now is that we simply cannot assimilate any more people regardless of work ethic. For some reason I think we will get the “tired, poor….” The world is turning into one giant sewer, take your pick of location.

    In case people are unaware the beautiful music loved and appreciated by true music aficionados the world over is being corrupted there by rap not unlike the rest of the world. The youth there like youths everywhere are finding “their voice” in angry lyrics glamorizing rape, murder, hate for cops, whitey, mothers, fathers, women and euro-centric culture. This generation of young refugees should transition rather easily.
