A Border Massacre of Hispanic Children the Media Ignored

REMOLCADOR 13 DE MARZO
Above portrait found here

Maria Garcia lost her son, Juanito, her husband, brother, sister, two uncles and three cousins in the maritime massacre. In all, 37 people drowned, 11 of them children. Carlos Anaya was 3 when he drowned, Yisel Alvarez 4. Helen Martinez was 6 months old.

And all this death and horror to flee from a nation that experienced net immigration throughout the 20th Century, where boats and planes brought in many more people than they took out – except on vacation. (Despite what you saw in The Godfather, actually, in 1953, more Cubans vacationed in the U.S. than Americans in Cuba. And they all happily returned home, as befit a nation with a bigger middle class than most of Europe.)

Our friends at Frontpage Mag. help smuggle some items across the closely-guarded borders of the Cuban-American informational ghetto for furtive dissemination on the outside.
