People launch a makeshift boat into the Straits of Florida towards the U.S., on the last day of the 1994 Cuban raft exodus in Havana, in this September 13, 1994 file photo. Cuba lifted restrictions on rafters in 1994, opening the flood gates for anyone who wanted to leave the communist-led island. Some 31,000 Cubans were detained at sea by U.S. ships that summer in the largest exodus since the 1980 Mariel boatlift, which brought 120,000 Cubans to Miami. The 1994 crisis led to a major shift in U.S.-Cuba policy and an accord under which Washington agreed to grant visas to 20,000 Cuban migrants a year. Rafters have kept coming in smaller numbers, though these days they make few political or media waves. REUTERS/Rolando Pujol Rodriguez/Files (CUBA - Tags: POLITICS SOCIETY IMMIGRATION)

Would-be emigrants take a break while getting ready to lower their makeshift boat from a rooftop to a truck and launch it into the Straits of Florida towards the U.S., on the last day of the 1994 Cuban Exodus in Havana, September 13, 1994. This summer marks the 20th anniversary of the 1994 Cuban Exodus. That summer, between Aug. 12 and Sept. 13, some 31,000 Cubans were detained at sea by U.S. ships. It was the largest exodus since the 1980 Mariel boatlift that brought 120,000 Cubans to Miami. Illegal departures by sea from Cuba are on the rise again, U.S. officials say, with more than 2,000 migrants picked up by the U.S. Coast Guard over the last 12 months. That is the highest rate in six years. Picture taken September 13, 1994. REUTERS/Rolando Pujol Rodriguez (CUBA - Tags: POLITICS SOCIETY IMMIGRATION)

REMAINS OF OLD PERUVIAN EMBASSY IN HAVANA WHERE MARIEL BOATLIFT CRISIS ORIGINATED.
A couple walk past the remains of the old Peruvian Embassy in Havana, where the 1980 Mariel boatlift originated with a rush on the diplomatic building by thousands of would-be Cuban immigrants to the United States. The buidling is being knocked down to make way for a new French hotel to serve Cuba's booming tourism industry.
