|CIAO Focus, April 2000: US-Cuba Relations|
With the custody case over Elian Gonzales seemingly close to conclusion, members of Elian's Cuban family have received entry rights to the United States. In keeping with past rulings, INS has judged that the child belongs with his father. Both political and diplomatic battles continue, however, and the case is under appeal. Emotions run high and potential votes are in the offing. Presidential candidates Bush and Gore have weighed in. And in Cuba, the transformation of Elian's case into a national cause has boosted Castro's moral and political leverage.
This month CIAO highlights U.S.-Cuba Relations.
