The real reason behind the downfall of Alarcon

"And that is how it happened... It was the new migratory laws that led to the downfall of Alarcón."


Ed. Note: Ricardo Alarcon is the recently ousted Cuban dictatorship official who in 2008 infamously told a Cuban university student who asked why Cubans were not free to travel that the world needed travel restrictions because if everyone was free to travel, the skies would fill up with passenger planes.
