Obama's Refugee Crisis

Thousands of Cuban's flee Castro over fears open-door policy will end but are now stuck in Central America. 


Thousands of Cubans are caught in a new refugee crisis triggered by President Obama's moves towards ending the embargo on the country, Daily Mail Online can reveal.
