The last Cuban migrants wait at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for a plane to Florida.
Cuban migrants wait on a bus prior to boarding a plane which will take them from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Homestead Air Force Base, Fla., on Jan. 31, 1996. The Cubans are the last to leave the migrant processing center at Guantanamo Bay. A military, Joint Task Force 160 was originally established on May 18, 1994, to provide humanitarian assistance to Haitians escaping political strife. A wave of Cuban migrants followed in August of 1994. All Haitians and Cubans recovered at sea were transported to Guantanamo Bay. At its height in early October 1994, the tent city at Guantanamo Bay sheltered more than 46,000 Haitian and Cuban migrants.
