Summary Congress granted unique immigration status to Cubans more than five decades ago, intending to help them escape Fidel Castro and find refuge in America. A yearlong Sun Sentinel investigation documented how criminals have exploited that special treatment, triggering Congressional hearings, a national discussion and a bill to eliminate the 50-year-old Cuban Adjustment Act.
