the worst thing about this is that the model who was shooting gave this politically correct statement:

“As controversial as the problem of illegal immigration can be for many of us, it is important to remember that people come here in search of the better life and it comes at a very high price of great courage, hard work and loneliness"

hey, kiddies! if you don't get caught, welcome to america!

I would assume Cubans in Miami, Mexico is a tad far, after all.... If I believed the story, period. It doesn't even look like a real fashion shoot.

Yeah, right.

A bunch of Mexicans are going to travel the entire Gulf of Mexico, go around the Florida keys and halfway up the Atlantic side, to Miami, in an open boat, no less, just to enter illegally. Do you have any idea how many thousands of miles of open water that is?

It's called the GULF of MEXICO, because much of the shoreline is formed by.... MEXICO!

When we lived in Mississippi, if there was heavy cloud cover spanning the Gulf, we could faintly pick up the radio stations in Merida (on the Yucatan Peninsula). It's not THAT far across those waters. And Cancun is not terribly far from South Florida: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Gu...61678d86094852

And when there was heavy burning of the rainforests in Mexico/Central America, it affected our air quality, all the way in Jackson - far from the Gulf. We could (faintly) even smell the smoke, when the wind was blowing right.

I just looked it up, and the air distance from Cancun to Miami is about 535 miles - hardly "thousands".

I'm definitely not pro-immigration. But Mexicans from the Yucatan are not bad sorts (I'm assuming that's where they're from). Still, considering the extreme contempt that other Latinos have for Mexicans, I feel sorry for them, landing in South Florida.

And why would they have to go AROUND the Keys? You CAN go under those bridges linking the Keys, in a boat, ya know...

And who's to say they traveled the entire distance in that one boat?

The model migrated here when she was 18, so her perspective isn't going to be the same as those of us who aren't in favor of illegal immigration.

That is one hell of a long ways in a open 26-28' center console fishing boat!

That's a whole lot of assuming considering that of the usual suspects that come ashore in Miami are, Dominicans, Cubans, or Haitians. I think the case for Cubans is extremely strong since they are coming ashore at Miami beach in broad daylight. The immigration policy for Cubans is sort of like a kids game, as long as they touch foot on shore they are automatically given asylum.

You think there is some illegal alien mother ship laying off the coast? I think not.

I think that Occam's Razor should apply to this, the simplest explanation is the most probable. And why are you so defensive about a Youtube caption, did you write it? If not what difference does it make where they came from?
