As Cuba experiences an historic exodus from the Island, deportation flights from the United States to Cuba may be reinstated. Flights were paused during the pandemic in 2020 along with the cessation of international travel but the US State Department and similar factions of the Cuban government have been in discussions since April of 2022 regarding the restarting of the flights in agreement with the previously created US-Cuba Migration Accords. In the past, both sides have accused the other of not adhering to the Accord requirements.
The pacts were implemented in the 1980s and 1990s after waves of Cubans tried to access the US by boat. President Obama ended the wet foot/dry foot Clinton policy which allowed Cubans who reached the US to stay, while those intercepted at sea were turned back.
The Department of Homeland Security which oversees US immigration departments and policies has not commented.
