If he were black, I suspect he’d be welcomed to the U.S., not like Elian Gonzalez! I say that because of Holder’s obvious racism regarding dropping the “New Black Panther” case. If he were Mexican, who had crossed illegally, he’d be welcomed as well …..
Left, a Cuban refugee, risked his life to emigrate to the U.S. He floated at sea in the Florida Straits for 25 days aboard a seven-foot makeshift Styrofoam boat. He was found 51 miles off the Florida coast and remains onboard a U.S. Coast Guard vessel Wednesday morning as American officials decide whether to return him to Cuba or let him come ashore for hospital care.
Above on right, at Janet Reno’s and Eric Holder’s request, a dangerous 10 year old refugee is captured and returned to Cuba even though he had family pleading for him to be free!
This case (as did Elian’s – his mother died on the voyage seeking freedom) has drawn worldwide attention because of the circumstances and questions surrounding the voyage from Cuba and how the man managed to survive — perhaps without enough or any food and water for more than three weeks. Apparently, he did not require hospitalization. He was dehydrated, but he was provided with an IV by personnel on the cutter.
It’s possible he might be sent back to Cuba as was Eliah Gonzalez ….. Normally, their feet have to touch U.S. soil to be considered for a refugee. He will surely see jail or prison if he is returned to Cuba; that ought to qualify him to stay. If he were, allowed to stay, after a year, he could apply for a green card. Recently, Elian has been in the news, mouthing what he has to say, ….. that he’s glad he’s in Cuba, but I doubt that he’d thank Attorney General Holder ……
