I was reading some interesting articles that said the CIA has intelligence that once castro dies, there will be a huge exodus of people from cuba to miami and the keys. It said that people are already preparing rafts and escape plans. They said that thousands and thousands of rafts will arrive along the keys and the US has no way to stop it.

Any comments?

This will solve all of Miami's problems!

No, wait. The opposite of that.

B.S ...public out cry from white and black Americans and non Cuban Hispanics will be such that the government will have to respond . When Castro was near death about one year ago I had heard that the Coast Guard , Navy and Homeland Security had plans to stop / control a possible exodus .

I live in Boca , but if another one million Cubans came here I would be the first one back home to Tampa !!!

I am sure many second generation Cuban Americans would high tail it out of South Florida as their is a dislike and mistrust as well as deep educational and economic chasm between them and more recent Commie born and bred Cubans is increasing .

hopefully they will end up in key largo LOL

i would be more worried about a major earthquake in south cali...south florida would get several million more people and be packed like sardines. People won't give up warm weather and palm trees.

I think the world is truning into a sardine can. I always wonder how long it will be until our resources, including land, are used up. It sends chills down my spine. The whole idea of the mass exodus, scary.....

I would think people would be flocking to Cuba then, after all the tropics are a "paradise"! Oh I forgot about Haiti...
