You remember the saga of Elian González. The Cuban boy arrived in Miami in 1999. He and 12 others were on a small aluminum boat heading to Florida. Along the way, his mother and most of the other people died. Then began a custody battle for González, with family members in Miami fighting to keep him in the United States just as hard as his father tried to get him sent back to Cuba. He was eventually sent back to Cuba, as his other family members could not petition for asylum on his behalf. This story was the only thing people talked about for a while, and it’s conclusion left many Floridians (and other Americans) angry.
