Delfin Gonzalez (L), the great uncle of Cuban boy Elian Gonzalez, stands next to U.S. Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) during a news conference January 7 at the home where the six-year-old has been staying for the past six weeks. Lehtinen, along with Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is asking Attorney General Janet Reno to allow the family caring for the boy to take his case through the courts. Elian was rescued at sea clinging to an innertube November 25 after his mother, stepfather and 10 others died when the boat they were in sank as they attempted to reach the United States.
