Here’s a story, dated Nov 20, accompanied by a nine-month-old photo. Call me paranoid, but why else would the author choose this photo if not to suggest that the U.S. is in some way hindering Cubans right to travel?
Cubans requesting refugee status in the U.S. stand outside the U.S. refugee office in Havana, March 6, 2006. Rude immigration officials and long delays in processing visas have turned the United States into the world’s most unfriendly country for international travelers, according to a global survey released on Monday.
There is no mention of the fact that it is the castro regime denying Cubans the right to travel freely. Nor of the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of Cubans on the U.S. visa lottery waiting list, desperate to leave. And, they sure didn’t mention this; a story (in Spanish) about a young man who committed suicide rather than face a 20 year prison sentence after being caught by the Cuban Coast Guard trying to leave Cuba in a small boat.
