William Guillermo Morales was a member of the the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (FALN), a Puerto Rican organization fighting for the independence for Puerto Rico. He was arrested in 1978. While being treated at Bellevue Hospital in New York City in 1979, he escaped and fled to Mexico where he lived until 1983 when he was arrested after a tip sent by the FBI to the Mexican government. However, the Mexican government refused to extradite him to the US. In 1988, after an international campaign, he was allowed to immigrate to Cuba where he was given political asylum.
