In most cases, the Left is perfectly content with bringing in people from other countries for just about any cockamamie reason. However, if such people are fleeing communism and generally tend to identify more with the GOP than the Democrat Party, all of a sudden, the Left discourages such migration.
With the recent protests in Cuba almost certainly leading to extreme and harsh punishments from the communist regime, it’s not surprising that there might be Cubans seeking to flee the commie craphole and heading towards the closest beacon of hope they would have: the free state of Florida. However, DHS Chief Alejandro Mayorkas, who is ashamedly a Cuban himself, discouraged Cubans from making their way to the U.S. through the sea.
Mayorkas said on Wednesday: “The time is never right to attempt migration by sea. To those who risk their lives doing so, this risk is not worth taking. Allow me to be clear: if you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States.”
“If individuals make, establish a well-founded fear of persecution or torture, they are referred to third countries for resettlement. They will not enter the United States.”
This coming from the administration which is overseeing the worst influx of illegal immigration at the southern border and couldn’t be bothered to even pretend that it’s a problem.
Now, a liberal might try to make the argument that it’s purely because of safety reasons that they discourage Cubans fleeing the island nation to the States via sea. I call bullcrap on that one. The desert that illegals have to cross in the southern border to get into states like Texas, Arizona, etc. are just as dangerous a trek to make as escaping Cuba via the sea. The extremely high temperatures give them heat stroke, coupled with the fact that they have to practically constantly be moving, as well as the fact that they won’t always be the best prepared for the weather. Not to mention the likelihood that any one of them could be trafficked, willingly or unwillingly, and be the closest thing to slaves in the modern West, which itself carries a multitude of risks.
It’s not the safety of the Cubans that Leftists care about here, it’s the fact that, according to Pew, 58% of Cubans identify more closely to the GOP than the Democrat Party, which is a surprise to exactly no one because the Democrat Party is extremely similar to the communist party that they just fled. Why would they want to support the crap that they just escaped from?
In just about any other circumstance, the Left would argue that such a dangerous trek even through the sea would be worth it so long as they can actually make it here and, likely, vote Democrat. But because Cubans tend to not like Democrats, they get treated differently as migrants.
They seemingly have an “issue” with Cubans making a dangerous trek to escape communism, but don’t have any such issues with illegals crossing the dangerous desert to illegally enter this country.
It’s yet another example of utter Leftist hypocrisy, not that anyone needed to be informed anymore that Leftists are hypocrites.
Cubans are currently fighting against the communist regime, likely in part because of the lockdowns, but mostly because many of them probably figure that they have nothing to lose by doing so. They live under such harsh and terrible conditions due to communism that they think it’s worth it to lose their lives to fight against it, in all likelihood because the lives they currently have could hardly be called “living.”
When people’s backs are against the wall in such a manner, it’s expected that they will begin to fight back, little chance as they might have at success. But not all of them will want to fight. If possible, they will want to flee and escape not only communism but the violence that might come from such altercations, namely from the extreme punishments doled out by the regime. Such people will seek refuge, but ashamedly, the illegitimate Biden DHS is denying them entry.
They have no issues whatsoever with illegals who simply seek to take advantage of the economic opportunities in the States to make very little money mowing Democrats’ lawns (the Dems did always want their slaves back and this is the closest they can get to that) and then sending some of that money back to their families (assuming that that happens at all, which could just be another Leftist lie). They have no issues at all with illegals who end up committing major crimes against Americans, such as Kathryn Steinle, who was killed by an illegal immigrant on July 1st, 2015 and whose killer escaped prosecution and the justice that was owed him because California sucks.
They have no issues with such illegal immigrants so long as they can use them at some capacity. But when it comes to ACTUAL humanitarian crises like refugees of communism? No humanity, no sympathy and no heart.
The Left is evil and they prove this each and every day.
“’There is no peace,’ says the Lord, ‘for the wicked.’”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
