I was 3 when my parents emigrated to this country, with my grand-uncle’s sponsorship from the USA. We had to go through tough physical exams, have a “sponsor” (who put money in the bank for us) and my father had to have a job and we also had to have a place to live. My grand uncle had left Cuba earlier and had paved the way for us to be able to follow him and his family. My parents were poor, it was after WWII and there weren’t any jobs available in Cuba.
