Is A Mass Migration Predicted After Fidel Castro Dies?

As we all know Fidel Castro is within the black figures of past and present politicians such as Hitler, Mussolini, Pinochet, Hussein and recently added to the list, Bush.
Castro has controlled the Cuban nation for many years, some like the communist living style, while others hate it and end up escaping to different countries, mainly the USA to the state of Florida.
As it is, many Cubans risk their lives daily crossing sixty miles of Atlantic ocean to get to Miami with the hopes of being free and starting a new life, sadly, many of them accomplish half of their dream and dying of dehydration or drowned.
Check this article on what the United States is doing if such thing was to happen:

U.S. homeland security officials say they are preparing for a remote, but real possibility: that the death of Fidel Castro could trigger a mass migration from the island nation, landing refugees in detention centers in Florida, Texas and beyond.

At least that's one of several worst-case scenarios that federal officials weighed Tuesday at the start of a simulated exercise aimed at gauging the ability of the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies to respond to a potential rafter crisis.

Coast Guard Rear Adm. David W. Kunkel, director of the Homeland Security Task Force Southeast, which led the two-day exercise, stressed that the U.S. government is not predicting that Castro's death will destabilize Cuba and spark a massive wave of migration. But, he said, ''We don't want to be caught flat-footed."

A federal plan to contain a possible exodus from Cuba has been under review for 18 months and will need final approval from Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. On Tuesday, federal officials declined to disclose many details of the plan, but said they are confident it will curb a wave of migration.

Some state and local officials said they hope that's true, but if migrants get past the first line of defense, they worry that Florida could see a repeat of the Mariel Boatlift, a chaotic exodus from Cuba in 1980 that brought 125,000 Cubans to the U.S., most to Florida's shores

Fidel Castro is in really bad shape, he is suffering from colorectal cancer and many believe he wont make it past 2007.
His brother, Raul seems the one to be taking care of most of the political issues revolving around Cuba, but will this last after Castro is gone?
Will we have a massive migration of Cubans after Castro is gone?
How will a mass migration affect our economy? Will the US support this or will they be assholes and send them back like they do to Mexican and Central-Americans?
I am not sure what's going to happen, but I believe a lot of Cubans will see this as an opportunity of political weakness in Cuba and come to the United States.
I am sure a lot of family members will urge family they have in Cuba to migrate and start off a new life, I guess we just have to wait and see what happens.

Cuba is over 120 miles from Miami. Key West is the closest point in the US to Cuba. The Key West Chronicle Blog has put together a map showing the proximity of the islands which can be seen at http://www.keywestchronicle.blogspot.com

Your statement, "Will the US support this or will they be assholes and send them back like they do to Mexican and Central-Americans?", shows quite a bit of ignorance.

Cubans that land on U.S. soil are given political asylum. Those found out at sea are safely returned to their homeland. The rules will not change immediately upon Castro's death.

I should think you would be ranting against the real "ASSHOLES" in these issues. The governments of Cuba AND Mexico. - If they were good governments the peoples would not want to leave.
