Here's my problem. ANY and ALL Cubans that set foot on U.S. soil, have AUTOMATIC U.S. Residency and a fast track to Citizenship. No if's and's, or buts about it. Even if they have a CRIMINAL record. What do I mean by fast track? They WON'T get denied citizenship, period. It's in the United States best interest for them to become citizens than to remain Residents.

You can read more about it here.

BTW, some other poster here bragged that he knew MANY Cubans and Puerto Ricans and that they didn't have ANY problems going through the Immigration process. Guess what? Puerto Ricans are born U.S. Citizens.

So if you happen to know any Cubans or Puerto Ricans, now you know why they didn't have such a "hard" time through the Immigration process. Go ahead, ask them.

As for what happened in the 80's, President Reagan granted Amnesty to millions that were illegaly present in the U.S. One VERY important requirement had to be met though. Those illegally here, had to PROVE that they had been physically present in the U.S. for a number of years. A way to prove this was through bank records and tax records. YES, tax records! Please see:
