Quote of the day

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on the danger facing the Cuban Adjustment Act. The immigration policy protects and gives political asylum to Cuba's real political refugees but is endangered by Cuban immigrants who come to the U.S. claiming political asylum only to become regular travelers to the island a year later where they vacation and conduct business as mules.

Via Café Fuerte (translation by Capitol Hill Cubans):

"If people come to this country seeking refuge and then begin traveling back to Cuba 10 to 12 times a year, it becomes difficult for us to return to Washington and justify the special status that Cubans have in comparison with the rest of the population.  That endangers the Cuban Adjustment Act."

    Yes, the CAA is a joke and a mockery, and it's being flagrantly abused, as it has been for years. The abusers will NOT change their ways no matter what Rubio says. Just end the damn thing and be done with it.

  • It's the humane thing to do. Ease travel restrictions, uniting and helping families... all part of the "normalization" plan. When Dems use the word helping families to promote policy change, it is never a good thing.
