DOMINGUEZ LOPEZ, Ernesto; MACHADO CAJIDE, Landy  and  GONZALEZ DELGADO, Dalia. New Immigration and the Cuban Community in the United States at the Beginning of the 21st Century. Migr. Inter [online]. 2016, vol.8, n.4, pp.105-136. ISSN 2594-0279.

The Cuban-American community is the outgrowth of a very particular formation process in which the political character of Cuban migration to United States after the Cuban revolution of 1959 played a significant role. Under those conditions and with the support of a set of policies and laws enforced by the United States’ federal government, a structurally strong ethnic enclave was created in the Miami metropolitan area in southern Florida. Internal processes that unfolded in Cuba and changes in the international system generated a new migration with features closer to a typical economic migration. As a result, a fracture appeared in the structure of the ethnic enclave, deepened by the growth in the ranks of new immigrants and distrust of older immigrants.

Keywords : new immigration; Cuban-Americans; ethnic enclave; transnational community; Miami.
