Many large American corporations are chomping at the bit to get into Cuba and set up shop, including airlines: Delta, American, Jet Blue; hotels: Marriott; home improvement: Home Depot; all the automobile companies; all of the internet access companies, all of the cruise ship companies, Coca Cola, and many, many more. Does anyone think that Congress is not going to vote to fund this embassy?

Just why is that? Since it is political we won't be able to pursue it.
As Canadians, this is a matter of great interest to us.
Although we have owned a home in The Villages since 2007, the United States government restricts us to 182 days stay in the US in a calendar year.
I believe the same restriction applies to Brits who own a home in the US.

We feel lucky to have a home in The Villages, and we would love to stay longer than six months in Florida.
However there is absolutely no legal way for us to do that.
We are required to fill out a form each year and submit it to the US government stating the number of days we've spent in the US in the previous year.
The US goverment refers to us as "Resident Aliens" during the time we stay in the US.
If we abuse the privilege afforded to us by the US government, and exceed our legal stay of 182 days, we can be barred from returning to the US for the next five years.

Absolutely right. The Cuban refugees are NOT illegal immigrants.

As some have said on other subjects, "If you do not like the law, get your Congressman to change it."

'nuff said.

I cant believe this is happening.

I have no desire to debate this in any way, but for all of those who welcome anyone and everyone to this country, illegal or not, I just wonder how many more terrorist will just slide on in that open door. And the only thing I want to say about the debt involved is just 1 statistic involving the illegal immigrants that are currently "guests" of the govt.now. It is costing the US 75.00 a day to feed each person. So, when you add that and the millions of other dollars spent on illegals, it really is great for our trillions of dollars in debt. Think of the future you are leaving your children and grandchildren. I doubt they will thank you. Like I said, I won't defend numbers, IF you are interested, you can look it up. If not, I am sure this will just be disregarded

Well, maybe you want to go back to the days when the following message was painted on the front steps of the Breakers hotel in Palm Beach:
"No dogs. No Negroes. No Jews."

While you imply people posting here are racists and anti-Semites for wanting immigration laws to be enforced, maybe you could vilify those who held hands and played nice with Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Hamas, ISIS and others who are painting racist graffiti in this country that is far more deadly and genocidal than the no trespassing example you cited.

New York Magazine - October, 2014 - ISIS Graffiti is Cropping up in Washington DC
"In August, the Secret Service said they were looking into a tweet that apparently showed a photo of the black ISIS flag in front of the White House, with the message, “We are in your state We are in your cities We are in your streets You are our goals anywhere.” The Secret Service didn’t say whether they had verified the image, and I followed up with them, but apparently they’ve been busy with something else lately.

I also asked FBI spokesman Andrew Ames, who told me “we are aware of the graffiti” and “urge anyone who sees suspicious activity or if anyone has any information about this vandalism to report it to the local authorities or to the FBI.” It is worth noting, as the news about ISIS in America gets increasingly bizarre, that intelligence agencies are still not reporting any imminent terrorist threats — they are, however, trying to do a better job of reaching out to the young Muslims ISIS is trying to lure to the fight. More than 100 Americans have tried to get to Syria so far….."

I think this country would welcome any and all, especially those who have murdered police officers and such, who are living in Cuba and will never come back because our new friend Cuba protects them.

I think this country would welcome any an all, especially those who suffer under one of the most abusive civil rights regimes in the world.

Most, in this country would welcome them all, and welcome relationship with Cuba, but the terms are really hard to accept, and it is even more difficult to have folks try to place a guilt trip on anyone who respects the LAW of our land.

Not comparable at all. That targeted citizens. This discussion is about non-citizens entering or staying illegally.

Now that would have won the SwimDawg award if she is still on the board.

That has not been my experience. My wife is from the Philippines and it took several months and several thousand dollars to get her here. She is now a legal permanent resident.

Except for residents of certain countries, one cannot simply buy a ticket and come here without a visa. We do have a no visa policy for some countries where a citizen of that country, I think Canada is one, can come here and stay for three months on their passport alone. But, I would doubt that that's the policy for Cuba.

The difference is the world today versus what you compared it to. Then, you could not kill a lot of people just be getting in the country, and I doubt the percentage of folks who wanted to do that was very high (being a bit sarcastic)

And your last points well taken but not something that is happening nor something it appears our leaders are even striving for.

Funny, well not humorous funny, but Martin Luther Kings widow had a great fear of the immigrant movement because she feared they would take jobs from the black population.
I, too am all in favor of immigrants coming here regardless of color or creed. As long as they do it LEGALLY.

It's amazing how in many discussions about immigration, some people (I'm not saying you) like to leave off the word "ILLEGAL". There is a big difference between going through the process and registering with the federal government and being here legally and those who sneak over the border and basically break into our country.

Our country is made up of immigrants and has a great tradition of welcoming those from foreign lands with open arms. But, we do have laws and regulations to control who comes here. When laws are not followed, chaos ensues. I don't think any of us want that.

in this thread a many like it I have yet to ever hear from the supporters of illegal immigration to EVER come back and state reason(s)why it is OK with them to accept or allow illegal entry???

I believe most of us are open to and accept the concept of immigration into the USA, and have done so for years. Some of our families come from those who immigrated here. We all know what our ancestors ELECTED to go through to enter and then stay in this country.

The current concept of allowing illegals to come in by the thousands with no identification/documentation or inspection and disappear into our economy and given all kinds of monetary assistance is just plainn and simple unAmerican. An insult to all who came here in the past and currently LEGALLY.

I do not particularly care why some think it is OK. It is not with me. It is against the law. It is against the wishes of many millions of current US citizens.

IT IS ILLEGAL!!!
