U.S. should end special treatment for Cubans, Costa Rican minister says

Foreign Minister Manuel González says the Cuban Adjustment Act, which lets Cubans reaching the U.S. stay there, is largely responsible for tens of thousands of migrants who have come to Central and South America in hopes of getting to the U.S. The U.S., concerned about the record number of Cubans arriving at its border, has asked regional governments for help slowing the tide by tightening their borders and dismantling smuggling rings. But González said the U.S. must do more and that migrants of other nationalities see the Cuban migration as an example of how they, too, might reach the U.S.
