Abstract: Cuban-origin Latinos have traditionally been represented as the anomaly in any investigation of Latino political behavior. Historically, Latinos have been strongly supportive of the Democratic Party, with Cuban-origin Latinos being the Republican-leaning exception. With this known distinction, we must ask ourselves what defines Cuban partisanship and how does it differ from other Latinos? In this paper I investigate the factors that influence Cuban partisanship compared to non-Cuban Latinos. Secondly, I explore the possible future trajectory of Cuban partisanship and evaluate the possibility of a Democratic conversion, specifically among native-born Cubans. Traditionally, Cuban immigrants have displayed a high level of unanimity and ideological congruence, but it is questionable whether that can be maintained among second generation Cubans. Will the children of this exile population maintain a similar political behavior to that of their parents? The evidence presented in this paper indicates that native-born Cubans are demonstrating declining levels of support for the Republican Party with the Democratic Party becoming a highly competitive alternative.

Abstract: There has been a surge of interest in immigrant political participation by policymakers, political parties, and scholars, particularly with respect to these new citizens’ attitudes on particular issues and their propensity to vote. Of great interest is the complex relationship between migrants, their home countries, and the United States government. Political commentators are deeply divided over the seemingly disproportionate influence that ethnic communities sometimes exercise over US foreign policy toward their home countries.
Taken as a whole, Cuban exile political activism has taken a number of very complex routes for changing Castro’s Cuba. In what ways do Cuban exiles influence politics in the Western hemisphere? What range of strategies for making political change exists within the exile community? How do these organizations influence each other and agencies in the federal government? What implications do their actions have for US foreign policy?
To answer these questions, I examine activist organizations within the Cuban exile community in the United States, focusing specifically on organizations’ whose ultimate target for political change is the Castro regime.
I explore the effect that two broad factors have on these organizations’ activities: the federal government’s level of interest in Castro’s Cuba during each time period and the organization’s financial and political capital.

"Immigration, Ethnicity, and Global Governance: Transnational Political Participation in American Cuban, Jewish, and Irish Communities" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Town & Country Resort and Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA, Mar 22, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-05-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p97933_index.html>

Abstract: American ethnic actors have traditionally taken a strong interest in the politics of their ancestral homelands. In particular, American Jewish, Cuban exile, and Irish American activism have significantly influenced events in the Middle East, Western Hemisphere, and the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. The paths for making change include lobbying the American and foreign governments, influencing international organizations, supporting opposition movements in the homeland, financing armed insurrection, and a variety of combinations therein. While critics often exaggerate the extent of these groups? influence over US foreign policy, Jewish and Cuban activists bring a single-mindedness and intensity to foreign affairs that has few equivalents. This raises a number of interesting questions: What range of strategies for making political change exists within each community? How do these actions affect the communal debate over the ?right? ways of making political change? What implications do their actions have for the spread of democratic values and practices?To answer these questions, I examine Irish American, Cuban exile, and American Jewish political activism during the 1990s. Of particular interest are the running debates within each community over the proper way to interact with the governments of and domestic opposition in their respective homelands. Despite their obvious differences, these groups demonstrate strikingly similar patterns of transnational activism. In short, all three ethnic groups are established, effective players in the American foreign policymaking process, and yet, there are significant portions of both communities that eschew formal politics in favor of outsider approaches, which often work to subvert national governments? official policies. I also demonstrate a turbulent relationship between ethnic activists in the US and domestic political actors in the homeland. There is ample evidence to suggest that the diffusion of democratic norms is a multidirectional, uneven, heavily contested process and is certainly not a given.

Abstract: As noted by migration literature, several key factors motivate international migration: human capital investments, socioeconomic status, familial considerations, social networks, the quest of opportunities, etc. While Cuban and Mexican migration to the U.S. respond in general to these factors, both experiences differ in several particular aspects. In this paper we will compare both, Mexican and Cuban migration experience to the U.S.: Motivations and outcomes as well as the way migration policies approach these two facets of the same phenomenon.
