Cuban anti-Castro militant charged for entering US illegally

[JURIST] Anti-Castro Cuban exile militant Luis Posada Carriles [Wikipedia profile] was been charged by US immigration officials Thursday with illegally entering the country. Carriles, wanted in Venezuela and Cuba for his alleged connection to a 1976 bombing of a Cuban airline bounds for Caracas, could potentially be deported from the US. Venezuela's Vice-President assured the US Wednesday [JURIST report] that if Carriles were extradited to Venezuela he would not be sent on to Cuba, but would rather stand trial. Carriles was arrested in Miami Tuesday [JURIST report] after slipping into the US about two months ago. He is currently being held without bail pending an immigration hearing set for June 13.
