Think about it this way. His entire experience in the US, as viewed as an impressionable child, would be that of a police state. Constantly being pursued and his family's home raided and his being snatched and taken away by men with guns. He may be told the US is a land of freedom, but Clinton's Justice Department didn't give him that. They left him with memories of Janet Reno's police state thuggery.

He has been successfully brainwashed.

It's so sad, because he could have been a free man in this country, instead of a puppet in a Communist regime.

And yes, we can thank thug Janet Reno under Clinton's command for destroying this young man's life.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

Well, some people would rather be a well-fed slave than a hungry free man. There are many like him here in America and around the world.

True enough.................but each one is its own small tragedy, IMO.

Elian should still be free, even though he's been convinced it's a bad thing.

Gonzalez was 5 years old in November 1999 when miraculously he remained floating on an inflated inner tube after the sinking of the boat carrying undocumented immigrants, including his mother, Elizabeth Brotons, who died along with 10 others while trying to reach the Florida coast from Cuba.

I wonder if Elian ever reflects on what drove his mother and the 10 others to flee Cuba in such an unsafe manner and head where?

Yep. He can literally see no difference, assuming he remembers much of it (kids are pretty good at supressing memories). In that case, being with his Dad in a place he is familiar with is the better option, as far as he is concerned.
