This chapter examines the deportation and return migration from Panama, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Cuba, and the impact of preceding migrations and mobility restrictions. British Caribbean migrants who were pushed out of Spanish American republics sought refuge in the British colonies were restricted to the islands of their own or their parents' birth. As hostility toward British Caribbean migrants rose in Spanish American receiving societies and large-scale return threatened, British bureaucrats and island elites disavowed responsibility for the welfare of British subjects of color abroad, all the while pointing fingers at each other as the responsible parties. The chapter also examines the social and cultural revolutions that British Caribbeans generated in response.
