While anti-Trumpers scream their lungs out over the Trumpinator’s immigration policies, a large group of would-be immigrants is being ignored.
And they’re being ignored because their plight is not Trump’s fault, but rather Obama’s.
In many ways what is happening to these individuals and families is worse than that of most “Muslims” temporarily banned from the U.S. or that of Latin Americans trying to sneak in illegally.
Of course, these forgotten — and widely despised “migrants” — are Cuban.
Obama’s abrupt cancellation of the refugee status granted to Cubans under the “Wet foot – Dry foot” policy established in the 90’s has left a large number of Cubans stranded in Mexico and other countries.
Those stranded in Mexico find themselves trapped in a dangerous limbo, in which they are prey to criminals and in constant danger of extortion, kidnapping, and all other sorts of abuse.
For many, their worst fear is deportation.
And deportation is the most likely end to their migratory hopes.
Yesterday, a Mexican newspaper reported that 79 Cubans had voluntarily returned to Nuevo Laredo from the U.S. after being chased away by threats from U.S. authorities.
Good luck finding news stories about the “discrimination,” “bigotry,” “racism,” and “xenophobia” that is preventing these migrants from entering the U.S.
Yes, Mildred, good luck.
