Más de 16 mil migrantes cubanos llegaron a EEUU durante febrero

More than 16,000 Cuban immigrants arrived in the United States in February

A total of 16,550 Cuban immigrants arrived at the southern US border in February of this year alone, according to CBP statistics (CBPfor its acronym in English).

In this way, the number of Antilles who reached the territory of North America during the past month far exceeds the number of the previous four months. In January of this year, the number was 9,720 immigrants, while during October, November and December 2021, 5,893, 6,606 and 7,983 immigrants were required, respectively.

According to CBP, Cubans were the third group of immigrants with the largest presence on the southern border of the United States, surpassed only by Mexicans, with 71,210 illegal immigrants entering the United States, and Guatemalans, with 18,175 people.


This increase in the mass immigration of Cuban immigrants to the United States coincides precisely with the opening of the borders approved by the Castro regime on November 15, 2021, which indicates a significant increase after Nicaragua abolished the mandatory visa for the citizens of the island.

Since the start of the 2022 fiscal year, which began on October 1, 2021, authorities have recorded a slight increase in Cuban immigrants trying to enter through the Florida Straits and across the southern border of the United States.

In this way, in less than five months, 46,752 West Indians were reported to have arrived at the southern border of the United States. 212 of them were returned to Mexican territory under Title 42, a public health policy that is applied to determine whether or not migrants can cross the border.

The number already exceeds the number of islanders who entered the United States by land during 2021, when 38,674 Cuban immigrants were registered.

Although the arrival of immigrants at the border has increased dramatically, so have deportations, with more than half of those who entered under government custody being expelled from US soil.

The misery, hunger, and pain caused by the Castro regime in Cuba mobilized thousands of Antilles around the world, fleeing their homes in search of the lands of freedom.
