If I read one more article on the damned travel restrictions where someone is quoted as saying “Lift the restrictions that separate families” or “The travel restrictions separate families,” Im going to scream.
Here’s a freaken clue: The US travel restrictions did not separate anyone’s family. There are only two people responsible for a Cuban family being separated: fidel castro and the person that made the decision to leave Cuba and come to the US seeking asylum. The US government did not force you to leave. The US government does not prevent your family from leaving Cuba.
It pisses me off to no end that some people cant wait a year or two or three before seeing their families again while others, like my father, left Cuba and didnt see his mother for almost twenty years.
It also pisses me off that some Cuban
exiles immigrants cant see the freaken painfully obvious: they are fidel castro’s number one export, where his government creates the conditions where said exile immigrant leaves, preventing other family members from leaving specifically so said exile immigrant will provide the Cuban government the income it needs, via remittances, to continue to keep Cuban families separated.
