Cuban Exile Organizations Response
to Recent Changes in
U.S. Cuba Immigration Policies May 1995

Present status of Cuban exile organizations in response to recent changes in U.S. Cuba immigration policies:
The recent change in immigration guidelines by U.S. State Department (concerning Cuban immigrants) has not been well received by a large sector of the Cuban exile community. The on-going repatriation of 13 Cuban rafters and the outcome of what people perceive as secret accords between the U.S. and Cuban government officials has led local Cuban exile organization leaders to assume that the U.S. imposed economic embargo against Cuba may soon be lifted, thus leading to future diplomatic relations between both countries.
As a result a considerable number of Cuban exile organization members met at Brigade 2506 headquarters on Thursday, May 4, 1995, and resorted to establish a coalition of organization representatives. This newly established coalition is now responsible for drafting plans for demonstrations and rallies to occur throughout South Florida.
In contrast to past amicable relations between organizations and law enforcement agencies, newly established tactics by such organizations dictate that locations and times of planned demonstrations will not be revealed to law enforcement agencies in an effort to prevent proper deployment of police personnel to affected areas, and thus create a large media impact.
