Does Cuban citizens have automatic US residence?
Does cuban citizens get automatic residency if they jump the fence even being some other country residents?
Nothing about US residency is automatic if not born in the US as a citizen.
Would have to apply for asylum if here, and as a refugee if not.
Cubans get a special process
The Cuban Adjustment Act of 1996 (CAA) provides for a special procedure under which Cuban natives or citizens and their accompanying spouses and children may get a green card (permanent residence). The CAA gives the Attorney General the discretion to grant permanent residence to Cuban natives or citizens applying for a green card if:
They have been present in the United States for at least 1 year
They have been admitted or paroled
They are admissible as immigrants
