Cuban illegal migrants
It had to happen. Sooner or later someone was going to realise that the ridiculous anomoly of the Cuban Adjustment Act allows for the perfect scam. This story from the Miami Herald details the case of fraud in which the cuplrits made $500,000 selling fake Cuban birth certificates to illegal migrants from other Latin American countries. Under the CAA, a Cuban national is allowed residency and eventually full-citizenship, which is a privilege that no other nationality enjoys. It's a policy that atrracts thousands of Cuban migrants every year to the US ... and, now it seems, a lot of others besides. It really is about time the US government realised that it is a stupid policy that needs reform.
