Cuban family allowed entry into the U.S.

June 10, 2005|By SOUTH FLORIDA SUN-SENTINEL

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - U.S authorities yesterday said they will allow a Cuban family that tried to make it to the United States on a bright blue taxi-turned-boat into the country, pending a successful review of their immigration documents. The decision came after immigration officials determined that Rafael Diaz Rey, his wife, Nivia Valdes Galves, stepson Pablo Alfonso Valdes and son David Diaz Valdes had documents for entry into the United States.

The family's attorneys said they would drop the emergency motion they filed Wednesday asking a federal judge to allow the Diaz family into the country and their request that the court temporarily halt the repatriation of all Cubans and Haitians the Coast Guard intercepts atsea.
