President Obama 'Ends' Illegal Immigration... But Only From Cuba
I'm confused...has President Obama been a racist all along who doesn't understand we're all immigrants? I mean, he just ended the "wet foot, dry foot" policy that allows refugees fleeing from communist Cuba to stay here. That has to be the reason.
Effective immediately, Cuban nationals who attempt to enter the United States illegally and do not qualify for humanitarian relief will be subject to removal, consistent with U.S. law and enforcement priorities," Obama said. "By taking this step, we are treating Cuban migrants the same way we treat migrants from other countries..."
Wait, consistent with law enforcement what now? Someone explain to me how this new/old policy jives with these stories: Illegal Mexican Jailed for Child Rape. After Being Deported NINETEEN Times, Alleged Killer is Illegal Immigrant… Deported 3 Times. Becuase I'm confused.
The changes are part of the Obama administration's moves to warm diplomatic relations, which have been tense since America's 1958 embargo on the country.
"Since I took office, we have put the Cuban-American community at the center of our policies. With this change we will continue to welcome Cubans as we welcome immigrants from other nations, consistent with our laws," Obama said.
Yes, that's right Champ. The Cuban-America community "loves" Obama (see Cuban Actress Rips Obama for His Visit to Cuba and Cuban American DEMOLISHES Castro Sympathizers: ‘Hitler had supporters too…’).
Look, we here at LwC are pretty steadfast when it comes to rule of law. Immigrants, all immigrants, should enter this country legally. But the hypocrisy here from an administration and other leftist supporters who would attack anyone over the words "illegal immigrant" is rank. If we're going to halt illegal immigration from Cuba, why not Mexico? Why not all of Central America? Syria?
Incidentally, and totally not a coincidence, Cuban immigrants tend to vote... not Democrat. It's kind of the one immigrant community the Democrats don't have in their busting at the seams victim pocket. In fact, according to this article, Cubans voted for Trump in higher percentages than white Americans. Compare that with the voting data from other immigrant groups. But I'm sure I'm just being paranoid here.
Let me put it simpler: According to liberalism...
- Trump wants to build a wall across the Mexican border = Raaaaaaaacist!
- Obama wants to end a policy that helps people fleeing communism = Meh.
Hypocrisy thy name is liberalism.
