About the Book:

For over half a century the US granted Cubans, one of the largest immigrant groups in the country, unique benefits. While other unauthorized immigrants faced many difficulties in their settling, Cuban immigrants were able to avoid penalties and have access to welfare benefits and citizenship status. This book is the first to reveal the Cuban community’s influence on the political map of the United States through the advantages that have been granted to them for many years. More importantly, it investigates immigration inequality among vulnerable groups and its overall politicization. Initially privileged to escape the Castro-led revolution in the throes of the Cold War, one US President after another extended new benefits, even in the post-Cold War era. Drawing on unseen archives, interviews, and survey data, Cuban Privilege highlights how Washington, in the process of Cuban immigration, was able to gain a new politically powerful force influencing national policy. Comparing the treatment of neighboring Haitians, the book discloses the biases embedded within US immigration policy.
