residency(名詞)居住權

Before President Barack Obama ends his presidency in a couple of days, he ended the 20-year-old policy that grants residency to Cubans who arrive in the US without visas. This so-called "wet foot, dry foot" policy has applied solely to Cubans, which has resulted in tens of thousands of Cubans risking their lives to reach US soil every year. Under that policy, Cubans who manage to get a single dry foot on US soil have the right to residency without a visa and can apply for citizenship. 

即將卸任的美國總統歐巴馬在結束總統任期前幾天,下令取消了提供給踏入美國領土的古巴難民居住權的政策,此政策已實行了長達20年。這過去被稱為「濕腳、乾腳」的政策,是特別為古巴民眾所設立的特殊法案,造成每年有數萬古巴人冒險渡海只為了在美居住權。在這項措施下,古巴人只要踏進美國領土,不論有無簽證,均可申請成為美國公民。

normalization(名詞)常態化;正常化

However, this policy has also provoked anger among other Latin-American lobby groups who feel the policy unfairly favors Cubans. Felice Gorordo, a Cuban American from Miami and a former Obama White House staffer, regarded this move as an important step in the normalization process in the maintenance of relationships between the two countries.

然而,此項政策也引發了拉丁美洲其他國家的不滿,認為此舉僅優惠古巴人。古巴裔美國人Felice Gorordo,他亦曾是歐巴馬白宮幕僚,則認為廢除此政策是維繫兩國關係使之正常化的重要一步。
