Cuban Migration To U.S. Nearly Doubles At End Of 2015

Nearly twice as many Cuban migrants reached the United States by foot and sea in the last three months of 2015 compared with the same period the year earlier.

The exodus is apparently fueled by the restoration of diplomatic relations between the former political foes.

Department of Homeland Security figures show about 17,000 Cubans reached the United States from October through December. Slightly more than 9,000 Cuban migrants arrived during the same months in 2014.
