    FILE - In this Dec. 19, 2011, file photo, travelers wait in line with their luggage at Miami International Airport before traveling Cuba in Miami. The door for travel to Cuba cracked open during President Barack Obama's first term. Cuban-Americans can now visit family on the island as often as they like. Americans can travel legally as part of an academic or religious trip. Perhaps it's for this reason that Obama's standing with the Cuban-American community in Florida stayed largely steady on Election Day, even though the modest openings with Cuba have riled some of South Florida's more conservative exiles. Exit polling showed that 49 percent of Cuban-Americans voted for the Democrat, roughly the same percentage as four years ago. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky, File)

    FILE - In this Aug. 30, 2012, file photo, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio addresses the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. The Hispanics with the highest profiles in this year’s political conventions stand as opposites in a cultural and political split that has divided millions of U.S. Latinos for decades. Cuban American Rubio introduced Mitt Romney at the GOP convention. San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, a Mexican-American, delivered the Democrats’ keynote speech in Charlotte, N.C. They are often lumped together as Hispanics. But Rubio and Castro are emblematic of acute political distinctions between Cuban-Americans and Mexican-Americans. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

The Hispanics with the highest profiles in this year’s political conventions stand as opposites in a cultural and political split that has divided millions of U.S. Latinos for decades. Cuban American Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida introduced Mitt Romney at the GOP’s convention last week in Tampa, Fla. Castro, a Mexican-American, delivered the Democrats’ keynote speech in Charlotte on Tuesday. They are often lumped together as Hispanics. But Rubio and Castro are emblematic of acute political distinctions between Cuban-Americans and Mexican-Americans. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
