Fewer arrivals at the Mexican border

El Nuevo Herald has a report on Cuban migration to the United States in just-concluded fiscal year 2008.

From October 2007 to May 2008, the number of Cubans entering via land borders (last year, 90 percent came from Mexico) was unchanged from the previous year’s levels. From June through September 2008, the numbers fell 40 percent, which supports the theory, discussed here, that the new Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program is causing a reduction in alien smuggling.
