    22 Cuban migrants land in the Florida Keys

    22 Cuban migrants land in the Florida Keys

    A single-engine fishing boat floats off Big Pine Key. The vessel brought three men from Cuba to the Florida Keys on Sunday. U.S. Border Patrol


    Twenty-two Cuban migrants reached the shores of the Florida Keys over the weekend.

    Shortly after midnight Sunday, 18 men and one woman set foot on Smathers Beach in Key West. They told U.S. Border Patrol agents they traveled two days on a “single-engine rustic vessel,” said Supervisory Border Patrol Agent Adam Hoffner.

    Three men made landfall at 11 a.m. Sunday at Veterans Memorial Park at mile marker 40. They told agents they arrived after a two-day journey at sea on a single-engine fishing boat.

    None of the migrants had medical issues, Hoffner said.

    Since they made landfall, the men and women will likely be able to stay in the United States. Under the so-called wet-foot, dry-foot changes made to the 1966 Cuban Adjustment Act, Cubans who are caught at sea trying to enter the U.S. are sent back to their homeland. Those who step foot on U.S. soil can stay and apply for permanent residency after one year.

    Migrant landings and interdictions at sea have both spiked recently. The numbers of Cubans entering all U.S. ports of arrival are also high above what they’ve been in previous years, according to the Pew Research Center.

    The fiscal year ended Sept. 30, and by the end of August, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported 46,635 Cubans had entered the country. In all of fiscal year 2015, 43,159 Cubans migrated here. That number was almost double the 24,278 who came in fiscal year 2014.

    A main reason for the surge is Cubans fear their instant refugee classification under the Cold War-era Cuban Adjustment Act could soon end because of thawing diplomatic relations between Washington, D.C. and the Castro regime. The more favorably the Castros are viewed by the U.S. government, the more likely wet-foot, dry-foot will be considered outdated and unnecessary, and many in Cuba want to leave before that stance leads to a major policy shift on Cuban migration.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    End wet foot / dry foot and I hope President Trump sends them BACK! Over 43,000 in ONE YEAR! All will be living off the backs of the hard working taxpayers! No permanent citizenship!

    I don't how the rest of us experience the "progressive" fellow citizens on a regular basis----but I live in one of the most secular and liberal dominated cities, on a public "alternative transport" pathway (it is a 1/2 mile city street link, on a longer trail system) and also across from a public school. Now.... I often get the "look"---they are seeing if my Trump sign is there, they look at me when I am deeply engrossed in thinking about something like a home maintenance problem, they look my car over, etc. Is this the beginning of being in a fishbowl? Note that the police now throughout the US are under surveillance, and they certainly are here. It's like the start of something that would eventually be the utter loss of privacy, where everything you do is scrutinized and hectored if it is not PC. China has had a lot of that recently.

    My point is that the so-called tolerant multicultural society would not in fact be that at all. The more the existing order breaks down the more intolerable the new one would be.
