    FILE - In this July 31, 2004 file photo, Cuba's President Fidel Castro, left, and his brother, Minister of Defense Raul Castro, attend a Parliament session in Havana, Cuba.

On Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2014, the U.S. and Cuba agreed to re-establish diplomatic relations and open economic and travel ties, marking a historic shift in U.S. policy toward the communist island after a half-century of enmity dating back to the Cold War.

    A shrimp boat returning from Mariel, Cuba, is packed with Cuban refugees as it lands at Floriday's Key West Naval Base on April 30, 1980. President Jimmy Carter said in May 1980 that Cubans leaving the port of Mariel would be welcomed in the United States with "open hearts and open arms." That was after Castro opened the port in April 1980 to anyone who wanted to go. A few weeks later, Carter ordered the "freedom flotilla" stopped as America was overwhelmed by an average of 1,000 new arrivals daily. (AP Photo)
