The Wider Image: A Cuban fishing village ponders its options as U.S. policy shifts
Vegetable seller Miguel Negrin, 56, drives his Buick 58 as he looks for clients 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.
