Cuban Nationals Now Subject to Deportation

The new administration dead set on removing Cubans to the communist island despite decades of prior protection and paths to legal status.

Blanco’s wife, Shelly, said that both Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and the family’s congressman, Rep. Neal Dunn, have told her they are trying to gather information on the case. Both men are Republicans.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, pardoned another Cuban immigrant for an armed robbery committed 19 years ago, in an effort to stave off his deportation. Rene Lima-Marin, 38, arrived as a toddler in the boatlift and 20 years later received a deportation order after his conviction.

Apart from the Mariel list, Cuba has agreed to review deportations on a case-by-case basis. Fifty-seven Cubans have been deported since October, while 335 were arrested between Jan. 22 and April 29.
