MIAMI, Florida – The draft Cuban immigration and migration law, recently published in the official press and submitted to debate in the Cuban Parliament, has generated intense controversies and mixed reactions both on the island and in the Cuban diaspora in Miami.

One of the most debated provisions is the proposal that would allow Cubans to renounce their citizenship. For many in Miami, this measure is seen as a ploy by the regime. According to some interviewees, “whoever returns to Cuba is crazy,” reflecting the deep distrust of the Cuban government’s intentions.

The Cuban professor of theory of state and law, Faisel Iglesias, strongly criticizes the draft, describing it as legislation “against nature” and a violation of human rights. According to Iglesias, the draft reflects the political will of the Cuban regime, guided by an ideology that seeks to control and benefit economically from Cubans abroad.

Among the specific provisions of the draft bill, article 56 of Title V stands out, which establishes that Cubans who renounce their citizenship may return to the island with a passport from another country and after applying for a visa. This condition, according to lawyer Willy Allen, makes these individuals “emigrants of another nationality”, subject to the regulations established for foreigners in Cuba.

Allen also provides data on the migration of Cubans to the United States, pointing out that since 2017 more than 1.2 million Cubans have emigrated to this country. So far this year, he highlights that almost 100,000 Cubans have entered the border illegally under CBP custody. Additionally, since January 2023, more than 100,000 Cubans have entered on humanitarian parole.

Despite these alarming figures for the Cuban regime, which seeks to encourage the return of Cubans from abroad, the law makes it clear that entry and exit from Cuban territory will be subject to authorizations based on the political position of the individual and other security criteria. national.

In summary, the draft Cuban immigration and migration law continues to generate division and debate both inside and outside the island, reflecting the complexities and tensions of Cuban immigration policy in a context of change and significant economic challenges.
