I was a freshman in HS back when the Mariel boatlift occurred, so I am not 100% up on the details. Didn't Castro end up using it to unload some of his more 'undesirable' population?

What makes the steady flow of poorly educated, dirt poor, illegals from south of the border much different?

Weren't USC getting fed up with the Boatlift back then?

Why do people not see this happening over again?
