McCollom, Tracy J.
MetadataShow full item record
Immigration is a foundation for the establishment and early growth of the United States of America. It has evolved from a foundational element into a debate over who should be allowed into the United States' guarded borders and why. An immigrant group accorded substantial attention within this debate is Cuban immigrants. The main argument in this paper will assert that the political and geographic relationship between the United States and Cuba has resulted in a unique treatment of Cuban immigrants under US. immigration law. Support for this thesis will be accomplished thorough tracing the historical development of US. immigration law, the history of emigration from Cuba, an examination of the case of Eliim Gonzalez, attention to the political power of Cuban Americans, followed by suggestions for immigration law reform. Examples of unique treatment of Cuban immigrants under US. law that will be identified include higher quota allotments, easier access to permanent residency status, and advantages within the processing procedure for the act of reaching US. territory.
