The Nation

August 23, 1985

Cuban inmates rioted at a detention center in Florence, Ariz., setting fires, breaking windows and furniture and shouting that they wanted to return home, authorities said. "The Cubans have totally torn up the facility," said Ruth Anne Myers, district director of the Immigration and Naturalization Service. No injuries were reported. The Cubans were among those who came to the United States during a 1980 boatlift and who later were convicted of crimes.
