Guantanamo Bay KG4WV 2014

From the 1970s onward, the United States used portions of the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base for temporary housing of Cuban and Haitian refugees intercepted on the high seas, as many were trying to get from the Caribbean to the United States. In the 1990s, it held refugees who fled Haiti in Camp Bulkeley until United States District Court Judge Sterling Johnson Jr. declared the camp unconstitutional on 8 June 1993. The last Haitian migrants departed in late 1995. In 2010, Guantanamo Bay also provided refuge to survivors of the 2010 Haitian earthquake, which killed approximately two hundred thousand people, rather than mainly detaining prisoners of war from Afghanistan and from other parts of the world.
