While thousands of Cubans continue to arrive in the U.S. through the Mexican border or by sea in “rustic vessels”(see photo above), the number of Cubans flying in through the humanitarian parole program continues to increase.

Those granted “humanitarian parole” face no threat of being sent back to Cuba –like the 3,093 who’ve suffered this fate in the past three months — but some of those who are arriving through this program are well-known agents of Castro, Inc., as previously reported here.

Moreover, tens of thousands of other Cubans who have crossed into the U.S. through the Mexican border continue to be detained or sent back to Cuba.

Who’s minding this schizoid program? Security issues seem to be of little concern. Good luck finding any information on this critical issue, which is enveloped in a thick fog of unanswered questions.

In March, US Assistant Secretary of State Brian A. Nichols, in a talk on Cuba Policy at Florida International University, celebrated that since the launch of the immigration program “the number of Cuban migrants attempting dangerous irregular migration has fallen nosedive”.
