Cubans Say Obama Shut Migration Path in Revenge for Trump’s Win

Now we have some Cubans saying Obama's sudden "decision" to end the Cuban immigrant policy that let's Cubans escaping from Communist Cuba stay in the U.S. is retaliation because many Cubans actually voted for Trump.

Obama has been on his scorched earth tantrum ever since Clinton lost and Democrats failed to get back Congressional control.

Another bitter jealous move by rabid Obama?

He gets 2-for-1 because the policy switch puts Trump on the hot seat too.

So what will Trump do with this ?


Cubans Say Obama Shut Migration Path in Revenge for Trump’s Win

President Barack Obama’s decision to terminate the Cuban refugee policy is motivated by revenge for Cuban-Americans’ support of Donald Trump, say some Cubans.

The immigration policy, dating from 1966 and dubbed “Wet Foot, Dry Foot,” allowed Cubans who reach U.S. soil to stay and become voting citizens.

Jose Enrique Manresa, a 47-year-old Cuban now stranded in Mexico as a result of the change in immigration policy on Thursday, suggested that the outgoing president’s decision is aimed at punishing Cuban-Americans for supporting Trump.

“Obama, because he is leaving, suddenly takes up the idea of repealing a law that has been enforced for many years and has favored many Cubans. I think he got angry with the Cubans — it is a reprisal,” he told BBC, referring to the Cuban-American vote for Trump.

Sounds to me more like Obama just gave Trump a gift. No more illegal immigrants coming in from Cuba, and it isn't Trump 's fault! Win/Win!

what happened to obaama`s open border policy of letting anyone and everyone come into the country? I guess the party of inclusiveness doesn`t include Cubans.
if this is such a great idea why didn`t Obama do it 8 years ago when he was first elected?

I think Obama has bad timing, like a 8 years delay.

nice article.
very accurate and the pic they chose to use of Obama

and yes, that is what cubans are saying all over Cuba, even-though it was just a disgruntled refugee now stuck in Mexico while transitioning to the US per the article itself.

and yes, its another Obama jealous Rabid move, because he just decided to do it and there is no logic or underlying reason for it, but jealousy [of Trump?] and that some Cuban-Americans voted* for Trump [per the article also where 600 people in Dade county whom are cubans-Americans and 60% voted for Trump]



im Glad Breitbart is here to stop false news unlike the MSM... Cubans are indeed in an uproar in Cuba over this, because their lively hood was dependent on the few immigrants who manage to make the coast of Texas or Florida on small boats every few years in the news.
damn you Obama and your evil sun glasses.

of course thats the reason he did it. What, not a single comment about a policy shift coming? Just out of the blue? Yeah, thats pretty unusual for someone as supposedly polished and thoughtful as Obama is supposed to be. Its too random and out of character for how he is known to do things and this close to the inauguration makes it look a little too much like a spoiled brat move.

smooth Barry, real smooth
