Yoani Sanchez’ Sister & Family Move to USA

HAVANA TIMES, June 6 — The award-winning Cuban blogger  Yoani Sanchez writes on her site today how her sister Yunia, brother-in-law and their daughter flew to Miami on Friday after winning the USA Lottery for potential immigrants.

“…she reached the same conclusion as the majority of my compatriots: How can one set down roots in a country where so few can bear fruit? I didn’t even try to convince her, I just watched her in a blur of paperwork here, a line waiting for permission there, meanwhile knowing that the moment of parting was near,” wrote Sanchez.
