**FILE** Miguel Angel Concheso waves a Cuban flag after he jumped from the MacArthur Causeway leading to Miami Beach, Fla., on June 29, 1999 near the Miami Beach U.S. Coast Guard Station. Concheso was one of a group protesting the treatment of six Cuban refugees caught in Surfside, Fla., after two made it to shore and four others were caught in the water. Under U.S. policy, Cubans who reach American shores are allowed to stay and eventually get work permits, but those found at sea, even a few yards offshore, are usually returned to Cuba.
