HAVANA, December 29. /TASS/. Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez has called on the U.S. stop enticing illegal and far from secure migration of Cuban citizens. He made the appeal on Monday after a speech at a session of the National Assembly’s commission for foreign affairs.
"I’m convinced the politicizing of U.S. migration policies towards Cuba should stop and the enticing of illegal, unsafe and sporadic emigration should stop," he said.
Rodriguez said Cuba insists, among other things, on a proper and rapid solution of the problem of more than 7,000 Cuban migrants stranded in Costa Rica. Neighboring countries refused to let them into their territories earlier.
The U.S. has a law under which the Cuban citizens who reach the U.S. territory, albeit totally illegally, get the right to receiving permanent residents’ permits under a shortened procedure. In addition, they are entitled to privileges and discounts.
The number of Cuban migrants arriving in the U.S. has gone up steeply this year. They fear that Washington will abolish the privileges for them in the light of a warming in relations between Washington and Cuba.
