U.S. to Cuban Refugees: Go To Hell

Please remind me again why we elected a Republican President, a Republican-dominated House and Senate, and elected Republicans to a majority of State Governor positions.

Today I wake up to find that 15 Cubans Who made it to a Florida bridge were sent back to Castro's gulag. Nice.

They could have poured across Mexico's border virtually unmolested. Or they could have announced their allegience to Palestinian terrorism, then applied for a Student Visa, whereupon they would have been admitted to the U.S. with very little resistence. Afterwards we would have been scrambling to find out who they were and where they were, but in the short term, with only a few exceptions after 9-11, they would have been okay.

But these refugees did it all wrong. They simply fled a communist regime with the clothes on their back, climbed on a Florida bridge, and mistakenly thought they had found freedom.

You see, we have this rule:

"Under the U.S. government's "wet-foot, dry-foot" policy, Cubans who reach dry land in the United States are usually allowed to remain in this country, while those caught at sea are sent back."

Of course, Elian Gonzales made it to dry land, but that didn't prevent some Clintonista goon from shoving a machine gun in the face of his guardian, then dispatching the (now-brainwashed) child back to the Socialist Fatherland.

But what of the Florida Fifteen? Doesn't a Florida bridge constitute "dry land?"

"The Cubans thought they were safe Wednesday when they reached the Old Seven Mile Bridge. But the historic bridge, which runs side by side with a newer bridge, is missing several chunks, and the Cubans had the misfortune of reaching pilings from a section that no longer touches land."

Immigration attorney Ira Kurzban pointed out that not only is the bridge part of the United States, but that U.S. jurisdiction extends into the ocean as far as 100 miles.

But these are pesky facts that get in the way of government doing what it does best: splitting hairs in a way that deprives people of their liberty (or their property).

Ah, but these are fifteen illegal aliens (including a two year old) who won't make into the U.S.

Which makes room for fifty dangerous aliens from the Middle East, or 1500 illegal aliens from Mexico.

Perhaps the Florida Fifteen should go to Iraq. I hear it's much easier to cross that border.
