who will take the priority?

Person A filed a patent with claim X in January. Then he filed a CIP with new claim Y in February, and then he filed a PCT in April.

Person B filed a very similar PCT patent with claim X and Y in March.

Assume all of these happened in USA.

For the claim X and Y, who will get them? Person A, I think. Am I right?
