Scope and content
The 2017 "Wet Foot, Dry Foot" Policy Change Twitter Archive collection contains a data set of tweets collected from Twitter microblogging platform when President Obama suspended the policy. On January 12, 2017, Cuban nationals who attempt to enter the United States illegally and do not qualify for humanitarian relief will be subject to removal, consistent with U.S. law and enforcement priorities.
During the announcement, the Cuban Heritage Collection collected tweets relating to the following phrases and hashtags: #Cuba, #Cubans, #CubanAdjustmentAct, #LeyDeAjusteCubano, #WetFootDryFoot, and #PieSecoPieMojado. The tweets collected by the Cuban Heritage Collection for this data archive do not represent an exhaustive or complete record of all tweets relating to the targeted hashtags due to restrictions on tweet volume accessed via the Twitter API.
The data archive is available for download to the University of Miami community via the University of Miami scholarly repository. The data is presented in JSON structured text files. For information on accessing the archive, see the “conditions governing access” section of this finding aid.
