The Wider Image: A Cuban fishing village ponders its options as U.S. policy shifts
Miguel Negrin, 56 (R) sells vegetables from a home-made trailer towed behind his Buick 58 in Isabela de Sagua, Cuba, January 28, 2023. Isabela de Sagua long ago became known in Cuba as a jumping-off point for maritime migrants, tempted by its proximity to U.S. territory and rules that were formerly lenient on Cubans who arrived by water. Now a U.S. "parole" program announced in early January will allow 30,000 migrants from Cuba, as well as other countries, to enter the United States monthly provided they apply online, find a financial sponsor and pay airfare. "Whoever can take advantage of Biden's program better, because it won't last long," Negrin said. REUTERS/Alexandre Meneghini SEARCH "MENEGHINI CUBA MIGRATION" FOR THIS STORY.
