    Cuban government cars arrived at Cuban homes before the boatlift to put our claimed families in at a camp to wait.

    Thank you for bringing up the Guantanamo detainees as well.

    I'm mentioning the following because you brought up that other side of Marielitos which caused the stigma on all Marielitos.

    First they usually would put the families and the regular people who had been claimed, and then they would bring on the criminals and the mental patients.
    I know one of the non-criminals arrived in Miami and asked where in the USA were there were none or the fewest Cubans. Answer he got was Iowa. He went there.

    He married an Iowa farm girl. Is known today as a one of the trio of the Cuban food chefs and authors known as 3 Guys From Miami. Jorge Castillo.

    ..On May 15 I wrote a diary on the Guantanamo detainee's hunger strike.
