When you have your own publication, you can call it what you wanna call it, and tell the story how you wanna tell it, so what you wanna see, must also be what you wanna get!



Elian Gonzalez affair

The custody and immigration status of a young Cuban boy, Elián González (born December 7, 1993), was at the center of a heated 2000 controversy involving the governments of Cuba and the United States; González’s father, Juan Miguel González Quintana; González’s other relatives in Miami, Florida and in Cuba; and Miami’s Cuban American community.

González’s mother had drowned in late 1999 while traveling with her son and boyfriend, from Cuba to the United States. The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) initially placed González with paternal relatives in Miami, who sought to keep him in the United States against his father’s demands that González be returned to Cuba. A federal district court’s ruling that only González’s father, and not his extended relatives, could petition for asylum on the boy’s behalf was upheld by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. After the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the case, González returned to Cuba with his father in June 2000.

These are not the droids you’re looking for.

A different perspective to consider.
