The Biden administration announced that it will resume immigrant visa processing in Havana, Cuba to discourage illegal immigration from that country. A record number of Cubans are fleeing to the United States though the Mexico border in the last few years.
A State Department Official stated, “These efforts are a key step to meet the U.S. commitment under the U.S.-Cuba Migration Accords to ensure that total legal migration to the United States from Cuba will be a minimum of 20,000 Cubans each year, not including immediate relatives of U.S. citizens,”.
