“Sure we care about Cuba,” Gomez told NPR. “But Cuba is no longer a top priority” in these elections. "Gomez in fact worries that episodes like this encourage the stereotype that Cuban-Americans are emotionally obsessed with Cuba to the exclusion of other issues like the economy.

"It reflects, he says, “taking a step back in terms of the maturity that the Cuban-American community has shown in terms of politics. Every once in a while we fall back into the politics of passion, and this is what we were seeing between Curbelo and Garcia” Congressional campaign.

By Lourdes Acevedo

(Washington, DC) Commonly referred to as the “Gateway to the Americas,” South Florida has long served as a major business and immigration hub for individuals and companies. With its close proximity to Latin America and the Caribbean, and its highly diverse ethnic population, it is no surprise that South Florida has become the newest region of choice by high-tech entrepreneurs from all over the world.

On March 25, 2014, the Ewing Marion Kaufman Foundation released the findings of its national study, “Lessons for U.S. Metro Areas: Characteristics and Clustering of High-Tech Immigrant Entrepreneurs.” Though the data to this study is limited to 2000-2011, it highlights the significant changes South Florida’s technology sector has undergone since 2000.

But the lion’s share of the confiscated property—originally valued at $1.8 billion, which at 6 percent simple interest translates to nearly $7 billion today—was sugar factories, mines, oil refineries, and other business operations belonging to American corporations, among them the Coca-Cola Co., Exxon, and the First National Bank of Boston. A 2009 article in the Inter-American Law Review described Castro’s nationalization of US assets as the “largest uncompensated taking of American property by a foreign government in history."
