and geographer in deciding the fate of 15 Cubans who arrived last month
on an abandoned bridge in the Florida Keys but were repatriated because
it was not considered U.S. soil.
The legal dispute, now unfolding in Miami federal court, has turned
a harsh spotlight on the federal government’s controversial ”wet-foot,
dry-foot” immigration policy.
