what Significance did the Cuban revolution have on US Immigration History?

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    Many Cubans immigrated to USA as a result of the communist revolution in Cuba.


    This mass Cuban immigration to USA could be seen as the 2nd series of immigration of Cuban Americans to USA. The 1st series of immigration was during the 17th century when many Cubans wanted to escape the Spanish colonial  rule.

    The second series of immigration was influenced by the power take over by the communists in Cuba, led by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. The people who favored democracy and freedom escaped Cuba, most of them were Cuba's educated upper and middle class people.

    Most of the Cubans came to the state of Florida and to the city of Miami.
