    The difficult question is why so many Cubans are prepared to take such risks to leave. When we see refugees taking dangerous sea trips to try to get to Europe, we talk about the dreadful conditions of war that have left them no choice, often the risks of staying more intense than those of going. This is not the case for those leaving Cuba. An interesting article in Havana Times a few weeks ago talked about why Cubans stay. In all the debates here about “controlling” free movement, I’m convinced that migration is simply evolution and the constant lure of greener grass, whether real or illusion. War and famine increase it but don’t cause it so trying to control people movement makes no sense.
