4. The early Cuban arrivals WERE wealthy, and they took over Miami
and some of them moved to other large cities in Latin America, Spain, etc.

Of the ones who came, they came knowing that when they got here, they were going to be welcomed into the country, with no immigration service agents chasing them down and putting them in jail, as they do ALL people from other countries who arrive without appropriate papers.

Cubans are instantly accepted here, through provisions of the Cuban Adjustment Act, they are given instant access to work visas, social security, US taxpayer-funded Section 8 Housing available until they make a comfortable enough income, they get food stamps, allowing them adequate food, they get free medical care, even financial assistance for education, etc., etc., etc. The list goes on forever. The Cuban community is per capita OLDER than other Latin American/hispanic immigrants, with fewer children, and their children tend to remain with their parents longer than in other hispanic groups.

They are most surely wealthier. The fact they are more educated is because they simply have had far better opportunities to GET educated than other groups. It's clearly not because they are brighter, God fobid. That would NOT be the case.

These stats have been gathered, analyzed, published.

National Cubans in their own homeland are also more educated than in other countries, due to their world famous educational system which allows people to follow their interests through the university level, or other forms of training. They are acknowledged as the best per capita in Latin America. Surely you knew that.

Our own fascist idiots in Miami and our other hog right-wingers aspire to overthrow the educational system in Cuba and privatize the schools which will put everything back as it was, with the poor being unable to send their children to school all over again, as it was before the revolution.

Congratulations to the world of a-holes for their total disrespect and intentional viciousness toward people who don't want their greedy, brutal style of government.
