MIAMI, Fla. -- Cuban President Fidel Castro's granddaughter, who fled to America in 1993, has become an U.S. citizen.
Alina Salgado, 26, is the daughter of Alina Fernandez, Castro's daughter living in exile in the United States.
Salgado was sworn in at the Miami Beach Convention Center on Wednesday, among 6,000 people who became Americans during two naturalization ceremonies. She refused to comment.
"I want to keep my life private and personal," Salgado said in a telephone interview.
