How Many Miles Is Cuba From Florida? The Meaning For Many Cubans
How many miles is Cuba from Florida?, is an important question for many Cubans living in Cuba, because many Cubans have attempted to escape Castro’s brutal dictatorship and repression of human rights, via makeshift rafts, to reach the United States, and more specifically, Florida, in search of freedom and a better life. They know that 90 miles to the north, they may have a chance to live in a free country, where human rights are not repressed. Sadly, some Cubans who escape from Cuba in search of freedom do not survive or reach safe ground.
It is unknown how many Cubans have attempted to escape Cuba during the past 56 years, during the Castro regime, to reach Florida. It is known that some Cubans die during their desperate attempt to reach freedom in makeshift rafts that are no challenge for the natural elements of the ocean.
Moreover, if Cubans that have escaped from Cuba are interdicted at sea and rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard, 1,275 Cubans were interdicted at sea in 2012 by the U.S. Coast Guard, they are often returned to Cuba, and not allowed to stay in the United States. Whether or not the Cubans rescued at sea are returned to Cuba depends on the U.S.-Cuba policy in place at the time of rescue, in addition to other factors.
Furthermore, if someone from the Castro regime captures Cubans trying to leave the island, they will pay dire consequences, such as being imprisoned, tortured, and/or killed for merely seeking freedom and their human rights.
Nonetheless, history, the U.S. Coast Guard, and countless Cuban families inform us that numerous Cubans have risked their lives and continue to risk their lives and the lives of their loved ones, including children, in desperate attempts to breath freedom in Florida, 90 miles away.
So next time you ask yourself, “How Many Miles Is Cuba From Florida?”, you will know. And more specifically, you will know what the 90 mile distance means to many Cubans.
May the people of Cuba and elsewhere, where human rights are repressed breath freedom soon.
