Yankees in the West
6 October 2017 to 6 April 2018 Details
For decades, the United States government has privileged Cubans over other immigrant groups. During the Cold War, policy-makers extended far more refugee benefits and immigrant privileges to Cubans than to persons seeking refuge from other Communist regimes, and this exceptionalism has continued to this day. This presentation will focus on the complex roots of these benefits and the likely reform in Cuban immigration policy.
