Orlando Florida. , The couple made up of Rosita and Antonio Pupo have been waiting almost two years to be reunited in Florida because the petition process for a relative abroad has stalled, the couple denounced before Telemundo 31.
Rosita, a US citizen, married Antonio after meeting her on a dating app. They made two trips to the largest island of the Antilles to see each other, and the second time they married.
Since then, she has traveled several times to see her husband, who has not been able to reach the United States because of the procedure.
“I went and saw him, we met and then I came back for the wedding… They still haven’t seen the papers and what I don’t understand is why they are taking care of people crossing the border and we , who are doing everything legally, don’t get the papers”, questioned Rosita, who is in Florida.
For his part, Antonio is also desperate. He cannot understand why there is no progress in his case, while it has been almost two years since he obtained the documents that allow him to be reunited with his beloved.
“I’ve been waiting for my visa for almost two years … to give me my papers to meet my wife,” he asks the federal authorities, after venting the anxiety that surrounds him and that increases because “people who have not been there for five days nor the process and they are already in the United States”.
Despite the fact that both understand how the new immigration measure helps other expatriates leave Cuba, they are disappointed that their case continues to be heard.
“I’m glad Cubans can come because that country is falling apart there, but those of us who are working legally would like them to make it a higher priority,” said Rosita, whose reelection is expected February 14. is determined. When is Valentine’s Day celebrated?
New solution for immigrants
Cubans, Nicaraguans and Haitians benefit from an immigration program presented by United States President Joe Biden.
Individuals must have a sponsor that shows you have the earning power to assist the recipients applying.
Also, among other things, people must have a valid passport from their home country.
However, immigrants who regularly enter the United States will not be able to benefit from this measure and will be subject to a 5-year ban.
