Cuban Adjustment Act

This is a law that applies to any native or citizen of Cuba who has been inspected and admitted into the United States after January 1, 1959 and has been physically present for at least one year.  As such, he or she is admissible to the United States as a permanent resident.

It is important to note that immigration laws for Cubans are different than for other immigrant groups.  For example, Cubans are not required to enter the United States at a port-of-entry.
