Even as distillers around the world shipped their products to Cuba to be smuggled into the United States to circumvent Prohibition, immigrants from around the world made their way to Havana to be smuggled into the United States to circumvent new laws restricting immigration. The two forms of contraband cargoes utilized the same routes, the same organizations, and even the same boats. Smugglers also brought narcotics into the United States illegally as well, seeking to increase their profits. Bureaucratic confusion among the agencies seeking to stem liquor smuggling and immigrant smuggling hampered enforcement of both laws, allowing the smuggling of both illegal cargoes to continue.
