You can’t come to America if you suffered under the tyranny of a Communist or a Socialist dictatorship – because you could potentially be against Communism coming to America. That’s the message that the Biden Administration is sending to those in Cuba, Haiti and Venezuela seeking asylum in the United States.
CBS reports, “People fleeing Cuba and Haiti by boat will not be allowed to enter the U.S., even if they demonstrate fear of being persecuted or tortured in their home countries”, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas warned on Tuesday. “Allow me to be clear: if you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States,” Mayorkas said, highlighting the dangers of traversing the Caribbean Sea and the Florida Straits by boat.
Mayorkas, a Cuban immigrant who fled the island with his family in 1960, issued his stern warning in the wake of seismic political events that have rocked Cuba and Haiti in recent days. (watch his speech here)
Apparently, any immigrant who knows the horrors of a Communist dictatorship first-hand is not welcome in the United States. Is the Biden Administration afraid of new American voices speaking out against this administration’s slipping “democratic-socialism” into the institutions that have been the very foundation of the freedoms that made America great?
Why is it ok for Biden and Harris to encourage anyone and everyone to cross our southern border for any reason – but they seem to have blinders on to those that are truly in imminent danger from a Communist dictatorship, like what is happening in Cuba right now.
It’s time we join with our Cuban American brothers and sisters and demand that the Biden-Harris Administration protect those seeking freedom in Cuba and allow them safe passage and support their fight for freedom.
