(p.37) 2 The Migration Agreements of 1994–1995
U.S.-Cuban Cooperation Past, Present, and Future

University Press of Florida

This chapter traces the U.S.-Cuban cooperative efforts which paved the way for the 1994–1995 migration agreements that radically changed and redefined the U.S. immigration policy towards Cuban exiles. This chapter discusses the four major waves of postrevolutionary migrations from Cuba to the United States. It also includes an analysis of the political and economic factors that gave rise to the migration of Cubans to the U.S. In this chapter, the focus is on the evolution of the 1994–95 U.S.-Cuban migration agreements and examines why the U.S. and Cuba exhibited cooperation and mutual interests in curbing illegal migration despite having a history of hostility towards each other. The chapter also includes an update on how the George W. Bush administration faced the issues of U.S-Cuban migration agreements.
