Just what is the hypocricy here? What about this administration (Democrats) that are pandering to Hispanic-Americans for their votes via an amnesty when we all know if these illegal aliens ever become citizens they will vote Democrat also. Isn't that the same thing?
Sure. Hypocrisy abounds.

We should seal the borders period. Enforce all laws . If anything the US should be more proactive in economic relations so the Cuban wave will not hit the US.

Its the same old tire story. Working in Miami Florida, most of these immigrants are Citizens by paper. The Majority doesn't even know American History or bother to keep English first. They wave their flag of the old country and turn our cities into Ghettos. No Thanks!

At this point I do not care which Political Party they can benefit. We need to seal our borders. Then we can talk Legal Immigration.

I favor ending the embargo in exchange for a number of concessions:
1) Cuba must turn over all terrorists and fugitives hiding from American justice.
2) Cuba must stay out of our internal matters.
3) Cuba must reimburse American citizens for the property that was stolen after Castro took power in 1959.

While I agree that the embargo is stupid I also believe that ending it without forcing at least the first two concessions would further embolden Latin America's anti-American leftist regimes.

They don't call Miami "Little Havana" for no reason.

I don't know what you call a great metropolis when it consists of non-assimilation by Cuban refugees. There are millions of illegal aliens living in Florida also.

Yes, and many of them are on welfare, and like the illegals from Mexico, DHS is usually their first stop. Also, like the illegals from Mexico, most of them send a lot of money back to relatives in Cuba.

ETA: I agree. That whole "Wet foot, dry foot" policy needs to go. It sounds like the title of a nursery rhyme.

All they need to do, whether they're planning to come here or have already crossed the border illegally and are caught by border patrol or DHS, is say two magic words: "credible fear"--hands off, and they're in. TO STAY. And they all know it, too because word has spread not only throughout Mexico but also in Central America and now Cuba.

Yup. Come here and bring your entire family with all of their hands out because no one has to sponsor you anymore to be sure you're not going to be a public charge. The Dumb Gringo will take care of you. In fact, the gub-ment is looking for ways right now to cut the Dumb Gringo's Social Security benefits so that YOU can get some.

Wake up, sheeple. And hold onto your wallets, Dumb Gringos.

1 way to filter out the scammers from the real deal is to put ALL illegal aliens who claim"credible fear' into detention camps'; NOT released on "own recognisance", till their cases are heard. Then word will get out real fast.
