So the DHS Secretary issued a stern warning to any struggling, starving, discontent with communism, freedom loving Cubans who might want to immigrate to America. He said with absolute clarity and unequivocally that no Cubans who try to come by sea to America will be allowed into the United States. He also said that the U.S. Coast Guard would intercept them, turn them around, and force/escort them back to Cuba. He was quite clear in his statement. There were no ifs, ands, or buts about it. There was no, “The border is closed.” WINK, WINK, “Please don’t come.” WINK. WINK. The DHS Secretary made clear that absolutely no Cubans would be allowed into our country. What?
Why? I thought the federal administration said that we were welcoming anyone who was discontent with their home country. Surely we don’t really turn away people who want to be here, do we? Or, could is this rule just for Cubans? What’s wrong with Cubans coming? Are we seeing racism on the part of the administration?
Men, women, and children from an estimated 75 – 90 foreign countries are being assisted into our country as they cross the Rio Grande River. The administrative department of our federal government has ordered our border patrol agents at the southern border to become ‘babysitters’ for unaccompanied children and a ‘welcoming committee’ for all illegally coming to our nation including criminals, terrorists, and many ill with covid.
Evidence show that coyotes and human traffickers working with cartels in Mexico are using the current policies of our federal government’s administration as part of their business model. Children are dropped over our border fence to occupy border patrol resources so that drug traffickers can freely come right into our nation. The amount of illegal drugs entering our country has skyrocketed. The collaboration of China (who manufactures and sends the fentanyl) with cartels in Mexico is killing our children. Recent news reports say that we have had a 30% increase in deaths (over 93,000 people) from opioids. Enough fentanyl has come through our southern border to kill every American four times. Why? Why do the policies of this administration support and encourage drug use and abuse and human trafficking?
Why is our federal government not protecting its own U.S. citizens who own land on the southern border by keeping illegal criminals out? Our hard working American citizens are being robbed, raped, and murdered by illegals? Does the federal government really want more crime and drug addiction? Their behavior begs the question.
Our governmental officials are putting people entering our nation without any identification and often sick with covid, who ‘turn themselves in’ on planes and buses, (FOR FREE WITH NO ID) to pretty much wherever they want to go into the interior of our country. Why can’t we send them back to their country of origin, like the DHS Secretary promised to do to the Cubans who attempt to come to our nation? The federal government is selectively redistributing and repopulating certain cities and states all over America with people who have come here illegally every single day since the new administration took office and cancelled the wait in Mexico policy.
DHHS is also happy to sign these newly welcomed, unknown people coming in our southern border up for all the healthcare, foster care and food stamp programs, rental assistance, and other welfare benefits only legal U.S. citizens should be entitled to have. The current administrative policy effectively says, ‘Go to the back of the line American citizens, veterans, and the disabled. We don’t care about our homeless, we want to welcome in the new people with no ID, few skills, little education, and inability to speak our language, and health issues.’ Teachers have been hired and some are volunteering to teach and tutor people from dozens of foreign countries while our public schools remain closed and our children fall behind academically and suffer from social distress and isolation.
A representative from Texas during the vp’s recent visit to Texas called El Paso, Texas the new Ellis Island of the United States. How nice, but even the arrivals on Ellis Island had to be free of contagious diseases before they were allowed into the country. Not so today at our southern border. For the diseased and derelict – the administration effectively says, ‘We’ll take them, and we want them.’ The federal government welcomes all – except the people from Cuba.
Why can’t the Cubans come? Does the U.S. government no longer support the desire for democracy? Is there no sympathy or help for politically, socially, and economically oppressed and starving Cubans?
Florida has a rich history of Cuban American citizens today that fled Cuba decades ago. These American citizens of Cuban descent seem to value freedom, appreciate democracy, want opportunity, work hard, and love our nation. Many who came have brought themselves up from nothing to become outstanding patriotic citizens, leaders, and business owners contributing to the welfare and well-being of their states and our nation. Could we be seeing the face of blatant discrimination and racism by our federal government towards Cubans?
Perhaps its just the coming “by sea” travel the DHS Secretary doesn’t like. What if Cubans had a land bridge to Florida? Would their desire for a better life and escape from communism be acceptable then? It’s over 1,400 miles from El Salvador to El Paso, TX. It’s 90 miles from Cuba to Key West, Florida. I don’t hear about the DHS secretary making people from Central American countries, Europe, Africa, and Asia return to their home country because it is an arduous trip. If Cubans go to Mexico to cross at the Rio Grande River would they be welcomed into our nation then?
To be fair, our government has said our southern border is closed, but watching the news and seeing the hands of U.S. Border Patrol agents helping people up out of the Rio Grande River into our nation, carrying their luggage, and directing them to waiting buses and planes for parts unknown into our interior shows how closed the southern border really is. So what’s a few more illegals?
Why doesn’t the administration want Cubans particularly to come to the U.S. or Florida? Does anyone know? Something really doesn’t seem right about all this. At the very least, it appears that the administration department of our federal government is practicing immigration discrimination and racism. Isn’t that illegal???
