7 Things to Know About the Controversial Cuban Immigration Policy Obama Just Got Rid Of

“Wet Foot, Dry Foot” Is Repealed

President Barack Obama announced Thursday, Jan. 12, that his administration will end a 22-year-old controversial immigration policy that allows Cubans who land on United States soil to become legal residents without a visa.
