“The US government had a simple statement for Cubans risking their lives to resist communism. Don’t come here. ‘Allow me to be clear: If you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States,’ Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said during a news conference last week. … Though the Trump administration was seen as anti-immigrant (and rightfully so), the media painted Biden as much more sympathetic on the issue. In reality, though, the Biden and Trump policies are virtually the same. Not only that, they’re also carry-overs from previous administrations such as Obama and Bush as well. It was actually former president Obama who ended the wet foot, dry foot policy that allowed Cubans to remain in the US.” (07/20/21)
