MIAMI—Following the news of Fidel Castro’s death on Friday, thousands of Americans are reportedly fleeing the United Stated in hopes of a better life in Cuba. Castro was a brutal dictator of Cuba for 47 years, and has been accused of a multitude of human rights violations.

President Obama’s administration has been working to repair lingering animosity between the United States and Cuba, which began during the Cuban Missile Crisis under Castro’s regime.

President-Elect Donald Trump, who will be inaugurated in January, has made it extremely clear that life in America will not be pleasant for immigrants, even though there’s no realistic way that the government can do anything about the undocumented immigrants in the United States.raft.png

Cuban-Americans who came to the states as refugees are now getting ready to flee the country they came to for safety.

Cuban-Americans in southern Florida have been building rafts out of anything they can find to escape certain tyranny in the United States. “We have to get the fuck out of here,” says Manuel Franco, a real estate agent living in Miami who came to the US as a refugee at the age of 9. “Castro’s dead, so fuck it, Cuba’s probably better than here. I’ve got some empty water jugs from the office, tied them to my front door, and covered that shit with a tarp. We’re all set to sail for a better life.”

Franco plans to take his entire family with him to Cuba. “Maybe we’ll start a cigar business! Thanks to Cuba’s great labor laws, I could pay the kids 10 cents an hour. We could make a fucking killing, man. I’m so excited.”
