If a Cuban national sets foot on American land, he/she by federal law is granted asylum. After one year, he/she will be given permanent residency. No problem.
Recently a Cuban pop star crossed over a bridge on the Am-Mex. border with his mother, his sister, his sister's boyfriend, his cousin, and an employee. All five were given asylum and in a year will become permanent residents.
If five Mexican nationals were to cross the same bridge, they would be apprehended and deported back to their country or, if not caught, be designated as illegal aliens who have violated a federal law.
As illegal aliens they can never gain legal residency; and, if apprehended for anything after three or more months in the country, they are subjected to deportation and rejected by federal law for being eligible for legal readmission for from three to ten years thereafter.
