The National Immigration Institute (INM) says the permits don’t constitute political asylum or refugee status because the Cubans don’t “face any type of persecution.”

The institute that will allow them to work.

Washington’s former policy gave Cubans who reached U.S. soil an automatic path to legal residency.

The United States ended the policy on Jan. 12 as a part of normalizing ties with Cuba.
