27,296 Cubans entered the U.S. via ports of entry during the first nine months of 2015

Overall, 27,296 Cubans entered the U.S. via ports of entry during the first nine months of the just-ended 2015 fiscal year, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data obtained through a public records request. This represents a 78% increase over the same time period the previous year, when 15,341 Cubans entered. And those 2013 numbers had already increased dramatically after the Cuban government lifted travel restrictions. These totals are significantly higher than in all of fiscal 2011, when 7,759 Cubans came into the U.S. (read full text at Pew Research Center's website)
