  • CRI in the News: Salvadorans Could Displace Cubans as Third Largest Group of Hispanics in the U.S. | Cuban Research Institute
    país es 29 años mientras que la de los cubanos es de 40 según las cifras Pero para los cubanos pasar al cuarto lugar en el perfil demográfico hispano nacional no implica una pérdida de poder político o económico señaló Duany Como grupo han alcanzado las dos cosas especialmente en los negocios alcaldías y legislaturas en el sur de Florida donde dominan sólidamente como el grupo hispano más grande con casi un millón de habitantes y donde además cuentan con políticos prominentes como el senador Marco Rubio hijo de inmigrantes cubanos Entre otras razones la proporción de ciudadanos estadounidenses entre las personas oriundas de Cuba 74 por ciento es mucho mayor que entre las oriundas de El Salvador 57 por ciento dijo Duany Por lo tanto el potencial electoral de los cubanoamericanos sigue siendo mucho mayor que el de los salvadoreños americanos Más que una pérdida o ganancia de estatus el reporte Pew refleja un cambio en el mosaico latino en el sur de Florida y el resto del país donde la variedad de culturas y países de origen es cada vez mayor Huyendo de violencia Muchos salvadoreños llegaron al país luego que se desatara una guerra civil en El Salvador entre 1979 y 1992 Tal fue el caso de la empresaria salvadoreña Margaret Delmont quien hoy sirve como presidenta de la Fundación Zambrano y ha fungido como líder en la Fundación Salvadoreña de La Florida Delmont emigró a Florida el mismo año que comenzó la guerra vino siguiendo a su madre quien había llegado al condado de Broward en 1974 con un dólar en la cartera buscando mejores oportunidades económicas Mi mamá se divorcia en El Salvador y en ese entonces era mal visto que una señora se divorciara dijo Delmont añadiendo que su madre era contadora en su país Muchos motivos conllevaron a que viniera a EEUU No tenía apoyo económico allá y vino a Hollywood a cuidar niños por 30 a la semana Los hermanos Molina cuyas edades fluctúan entre los 41 y 63 también llegaron luego del comienzo de la guerra emigrando luego de que uno de los bandos tomara posesión de su residencia en los campos de Corinto en Morazán Manuel era un niño cuando la guerra comenzó dijo Miguel señalando a su hermano menor quien hoy tiene 43 años Tuvimos que huir sin ropa y sin nada De dos en dos los 13 hermanos entraron al país a través de la frontera mexicana Uno murió en un accidente en Nueva York y dos regresaron a El Salvador los otros 10 se establecieron en Fort Lauderdale en 1981 luego de que el mayor les consiguiera trabajos a algunos de ellos en restaurantes locales Era muy duro Por ejemplo se me hizo difícil aprender a correr bicicleta porque estaba acostumbrado a andar en caballo dijo Miguel Pero se me quitó eso de regresar a El Salvador como a los 20 años En 1987 con ahorros y dinero prestado deciden abrir el primer restaurante La Bamba Hoy

  • Dr. José Gabilondo Quoted on Tampa and Miami's Trade with Cuba | Cuban Research Institute
    the president of the Tampa Bay Lightning executives from several area hospitals and the president of Tampa s University of South Florida When asked if Tampa is in a better position to invest in Cuba after the embargo Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bob Rohrlack responded Hands down Absolutely Rohrlack said the chamber s governing board has been planning for trade with Cuba for seven years now Chambers of commerce are typically forbidden from getting involved in politics but Rohrlack said he saw an opportunity for Tampa People here understand that this 50 year old policy is outdated he said It s time we start thinking about what happens after the embargo Originally the chamber planned to send one of its own with five others from the community Hundreds of people expressed interest Dozens signed up Rohrlack said they had to cut the number off at 38 Interest kept growing and we just finally had to cut it off he said During the trip Rohrlack recalls conversations with locals who referred to Miami as a city of anti Castro politics while they saw Tampa as place that grew up around Ybor cigar factories In Tampa there s a celebration of diversity of Cubans while in Miami there s less acceptance Rohrlack said This is going to bode well for us when Cuba opens Tampa will add at least 5 000 jobs overnight when it happens estimated Manteiga as he sat in front of a painting of his grandfather in the newspaper s Ybor City office Cuba doesn t have warehouses to handle mass shipping so supplies will have to be brought in from a nearby port until they can be built Florida strawberries for instance can t be kept in bulk in Cuba meaning weekly shipments from the Port of Tampa Tampa has been the safety valve for Cuba for over 100 years Manteiga said noting that Ybor settlers helped fund the Cuban independence from the Spanish It s going to be the same way after the embargo is lifted Miami s Hard Line Alina Brouwer comes from a family of musicians Her father and uncle are both composers and well known in Cuba Alina fled to Miami in 1992 After the embargo is lifted she imagines opening up a recording studio in Cuba Maybe a music school too I dream about going back to Cuba very often I see my family my kids especially being able to walk around Havana Brouwer said But Alina is like many exiles in Miami She says she s waiting for human rights in Cuba And only then will she do business on the island It s a common refrain among companies in Miami where the official political opinion seems to be that nobody should do business with the island until there s widespread democratic reforms But that s unlikely to happen anytime soon said Gabilondo of Florida International University Instead Cuba is likely to open up through a gradual lifting

    Pero esto no significa que la universidad deba quedarse cruzada de brazos en el interino aseguró el economista Ni FIU ni yo tenemos alguna idea sobre cuándo se removerán las restricciones federales y estatales de hacer intercambios comerciales con Cuba dijo Mesa Lago quien entrevistó a 44 miembros de la facultad y administración de FIU para recopilar el reporte Pero no podemos esperar a ese momento El economista sugiere que la institución comience inmediatamente a hacer contactos con líderes cubanos y crear una organización sin fines de lucro que auspicie un diálogo entre Cuba y FIU Todas las sugerencias de esta etapa inmediata añadió caen bajo el marco de la ley de EEUU Los primeros pasos sugeridos en el reporte se verificaron cuidadosamente con un consejero legal de la universidad dijo Las leyes de Florida prohíben viajes académicos a Cuba y está prohibido utilizar fondos públicos para ese fin Estas restricciones se basan en que Cuba ha sido clasificado como un estado que auspicia el terrorismo por el Departamento de Estado De ser Cuba eliminada de la lista se legalizarían los viajes académicos a la isla Universidades en otros estados sin leyes similares han logrado abrir programas académicos en Cuba New York University por ejemplo tiene un programa de estudios extranjeros en La Habana para sus estudiantes de cine Jorge Duany director del Instituto de Estudios Cubanos de FIU opinó que el reporte representa un excelente punto de partida para los futuros planes de la institución en Cuba Tiene mucho sentido concentrar la atención inicialmente en algunas áreas de investigación docencia y asesoramiento técnico como gerencia del turismo administración de empresas ingeniería y computación dijo Duany Por otro lado no debe menospreciarse el aporte de las humanidades y las ciencias sociales a la reconstrucción futura de Cuba Una de las
