50. All responses
Also by Moi, responding to thou:

"Then we should allow all immigrants pursuing MORE opportunity to stay in the USA?"

No, unfortunately, it would get quite crowded. So we make choices. I am very pro-immigrant and those who are motivated enough to get here like this deserve credit.

"There is rebellion against government corruption there? When is that gonna start here in the good ol' USA?"

I have no idea. You?

"Are there Cuban migrants at your house now, or is that an offer? If not, why haven't you done that earlier then? This illegal immigration has been going on for 40+ years."

I was quite impressed by the actions of these freedom loving folks. And I would be willing to put myself out for them. No, I don't have any Cuban migrants living on my couch right now, otherwise I couldn't make room for one of these folks.

"Cheap labor republicans need more illegal immigrants in the USA."

I am not a cheap labor republican, I am a freedom-loving Democrat.

"You really think that its a good thing that there is a bypass from the criminal background check and no mental illness records to enter the USA? Do we really need more people who recklessly endanger their children here?"

Wow a bypass on criminal background check who escape from a nation run by a criminal -- Castro. Sounds OK to me. I don't think trying to get freedom for your children is recklessly endangering them.

"An economy stilted of as much opportunity as the US mainly by the US travel sanctions and the extra territorial US Helms-Burton law (as well as the US Libertad act, the Support for Cuban Dissidents act, etc, etc)."

I notice you didn't answer my question. What sort of punishments does your friend Castro have planned for people who dare to leave his paradise?

As for the rest, we set limits, rules and guidelines for every immigrant group. So what?
