Cuban musician leaves tour to defect to U.S.

Brownsville, Texas—A popular Cuban musician defected and was granted asylum in south Texas after taking a taxi from Monterrey, Mexico, to the U.S. border, immigration officials said Wednesday.

Carlos Manuel Pruneda of the band “Carlos Manuel and his Clan” was granted asylum Tuesday after turning himself in to Brownsville authorities late Sunday or early Monday, said Art Moreno, a spokesman for the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration.
