    Background: Refugees from the Fidel Castro regime in Cuba continue to pour into Miami, U.S.A., at the rate of hundreds every day. It was reported recently that well over 27,000 Cuban exiles had gathered in the town since the revolution nearly two years ago.

    Accommodation for so many people is hard to find, and at Miami's Spanish centre, Catholic workers help to get the refugees established in homes, schools and jobs.

    Exiles - who have talked of "invading" Cuba to free the people from Castro's domination - very often have no place to go and are seen willing the time away in cafes. Many, however, have found jobs through helpful organisations.

    The Mayor of Miami has the problem of feeding the exiles. In one house - where anti-Castro volunteers are recruited - 23 poverty-stricken people were found crowded together.

    Attempts are being made to curb the exodus from Cuba. In Havana youths seeking a student visa at the American Embassy must state why they are unable to obtain an equivalent education in Cuba. Workers require a letter from their place of work to apply for a visa. "This has constituted an effective block", said the Embassy.
