"Carlos Fernandez and Dimas Figueredo are both well-known leaders of the Consejo Revolucionario Cubano in Mexico City and appear to be the two persons most concerned with aiding Cuban refugees in this city. They have often been helpful especially in connection with visa matters."

Deposition of Robert Shaw: Shaw aka "Lawrence Barker" testified that "AMSAIL...was the representative of the exile community. He would arrange to meet, help, debrief Cubans who were arriving constantly from Cuban on the way to the United States or to Mexico or to somewhere else in the world, people who were exiting Cuba."

The Cuban commercial attaché Luisa Calderon had been a person of interest for the Mexico City station that summer – during July, after a Texas rancher named Eldon Hensen tried to do business with her, one of Bob Shaw’s colleagues called Hensen back and pretended to be a Cuban official. Hensen then met with the CIA agent at a restaurant, while Shaw (aka “Lawrence Barker”) sat at a nearby table to take in the action. (see endnote 63), maryferrell.org/pages/State_Secret_Chapter3.html
