Hatred? What hatred are you talking about? I don't know about you, but I don't "hate" anyone.

Why is it that people like us can't express our opinions about what we feel is an unfair and outdated immigration system?

Also, let me tell you that I live in Miami and while I accept that Cubans are not all to blame for the problems here and the way this city has turned out, a lot of the illegals came here because Miami became a Spanish speaking mecca, in which you can get by without even knowing English, at the expense of those who were here LONG before the Mariel Boatlift incident.

As for your flag, I don't hate it, but I don't particularly like the fact that some of you people fly your flags all over the place. After all, you came here for a new life and to be US citizens, not just Cubans waiting to go back to Cuba.

I have to be honest with you, I've lived in Miami for over 6 years and I can honestly say that I have not met one "decent" Cuban. Most are crooks, in one way or another.

Medicare fraud is rampant here, hit and run murders are a regular occurrence. Many of these people refuse to learn English and fly their disgusting Cuban flags everywhere, as if they have colonized South Florida and turned it into North Cuba.

But don't take my word for it -- either spend some time in the "real" Miami (not the glossed over South Beach version), or take a look at these links:

Cubans in $110M Medicare fraud bought 12 condos in Dominican capital - DominicanToday.com

Miami police identify suspect in doctor's hit-run death - Breaking News - Broward - MiamiHerald.com (http://www.miamiherald.com/news/broward/breaking-news/story/872881.html - broken link)

This nonsense should have been stopped when the Mariel Boatlift occurred. These people have had over half a century to get rid of Castro and his regime. We turn Haitians away without question, even though Haiti is far more f--ked up than Cuba.

I challenge all Californians, Arizonans and Texans who feel strongly about Mexicans immigrants to come and live in Miami for just a few weeks. At least your states are still "America". Miami has degenerated into a corrupt, near-third world cesspool of human waste, thanks to the waves of immigrants that have come here and taken over.
Miami mayors are corrupt and anything goes.. miami has been little cuba for years..
but when you have 30-40 illegals crossing the border and having anchor babies so taxpayers have to support them from birth through college is sick..this country has spent a few trillions on illegals and now we broke..

this crap is disgusting. Government spending is out of control in all aspects..

i really haven't read the previous threads but if you hang a cuban flag in america, at least hang the american flag over it.. you are in america and NOt cuba.. respect our flag and our customs..Cubans came into florida many years ago and took over Miami.. they hang signs in their homes "americans go home".. so try and realize this is the garbage americans have to deal with.. now with 30-40 illegal aliens bombarding the usa and demanding we pay their way is absurd.. Americans have had enough..

Whether you agree with Cuban immigration or not, another problem is that since Miami became a mecca for Cubans, over the last 10-15 years it has also become a mecca for ILLEGAL immigrants from countries such as Colombia, Nicaragua, Peru, Mexico and Venezuela. Just take a drive through parts of Miami and you'll feel like you're in Lima or Bogota, but without the beautiful scenery in the distance.

I don't have a problem with the older generations of Cubans that came here 25+ years ago. They were genuine refugees, but the more recent waves (post Mariel) and the waves of illegals from other Latin American countries have been a disaster for South Florida and have truly turned what was once the USA into something else.

I am part Hungarian, the US would be lucky to have more immigration from our land. We are hard-working, intelligent people.

I don't doubt that...I mean, how many Hungarians do you hear about forcing Hungarian on everyone and taking over whole cities?

Miami itself is very corrupt. Medicare fraud is rife here, politicians are worse here and less accountable than most other places in the US (if not all of them).

For instance, the latest lunacy is the new Marlins stadium:

Rob Neyer: Numbers for new Marlins stadium don't add up - ESPN

Hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayers' money are being pumped into this ridiculous project, in a city with some of the worst schools in the country, poorest transport infrastructure and some of the highest foreclosure rates in the country.

Politicians here, whether Republican or Democrat pander to Cuban issues only.

Exactly what population would you all be ok with in the US? Six billion? Where is the cutoff point? IMO we've already breached that threshold. It's time for other Countries to take care of their own. By default we will become third world status because of head count.

Part Hunky here as well: my father fled Magyarorszag via Germany for the USA back in 1951---------he did it the right way with a sponsor, etc.

The other half of me is essentially Virginia hillbilly whose ancestors fought in the Civil War out of Orange, Va.

Remember though; like modern Italians and Spaniards, Hungarians ain't exactly 'breeders' these days-----------besides, we will marry anything but another Hungarian.
