Two Cuban refugees come ashore on Hollywood Beach, FL

Two men, believed to be Cuban refugees, came ashore yesterday on Hollywood Beach. One was apprehended and the other one is still at large. Nevertheless, as bad as their situation may be here, it is still infinitely better than their situation in apartheid Cuba.

Since Obama rescinded the “wet foot/dry foot” policy, the number of Cubans throwing themselves into the sea in an attempt to reach the U.S. has drastically dropped. The misery, poverty, and repression in Cuba, however, has remained the same and the desperation of Cubans looking to escape a life of oppression and slavery continues. With no future on the island and a tyrannical regime that seems more entrenched than ever, Cubans are still willing to risk their lives to escape, even if it means being arrested if they are lucky enough to reach the U.S.
