The wet-foot, dry-foot policy makes it clear the Cubans who reach American shores are NOT ILLEGAL.

It is still written policy and will continue until Congress changes it. "The article you cite is EIGHT years old, but it still is in effect."


Petition your representative in Congress to change it if you do not like the policy.

Cubans have never been called illegals, since they started arriving in south Florida back in the early 60's. One of the reasons other Hispanic groups, such as Mexicans and South Americans hold this against them is because they receive this special treatment.

"THe future of the United States' five-decade embargo blocking trade with Cuba is suddenly and unexpectedly murky.

Although President Barack Obama shifted long-standing American policy on Wednesday, the embargo and the lesser known but critically important Cuban Adjustment Act are still in place. And there's no real prospect that the Republican-controlled Congress will change them in the new year."


"Obama's new policy on Cuba effectively ends the U.S. embargo as Florida and the world have known it for more than half a century, most likely leading to its gradual phase-out.

But significant parts will remain in effect, including a ban on American tourism to Cuba.

Obama made extraordinary use of his executive authority to greatly alter the U.S. relationship with Cuba.

Please stay tuned...NOTHING much happening yet

My opinion...another P ploy as he has ignored South America during the tenure. Cuba and Venzuela are partners and Venzuela is important in this equation.

So while the administration is making nice with Castro, he allows a Russian spy ship to dock on his shores the day after a US contingency arrives to work out details. Another slap in the face to the US.

Yes you might say that I have. I was born in St Francis Hospital in Miami Beach, and grew up in Miami. Lived there until I got married & moved around the U.S. & the world in early yrs. Then in my late twenties returned to S. Fl. & raised my family in Broward County. Ie: Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale area. So like what is your point?
