On Thanksgiving, a young Cuban boy was rescued from the Atlantic Ocean after a failed attempt to reach the U.S. in a powerboat with a dozen other people. The boy is now in Miami with relatives who want permanent custody, but the boys’s father and four grandparents want him to return to Cuba to be with them. The boy’s mother apparently drowned along with the rest of the group who attempted the voyage from Cuba to Florida. A panel talks about the case and what it means for U.S.-Cuba relations.
