Somewhere off the south Florida coast, federal and local law enforcement agencies wrapped up a two-day simulation Thursday to prepare for a mass migration such as might occur from Cuba.
Since arrivals occur frequently in South Florida, the simulation of intercepting thousands of migrants at sea took place off Ft. Lauderdale with more than 85 federal and local law enforcement agencies involved.
In a strange twist of fate, while the simulation was going on, the U.S. Border Patrol actually picked up 40 Spanish-speaking migrants along Miami-Dade’s beaches.
I wonder if the FEDs know something they are not telling us and if they are prparing for what may happen if Castro 'Dies?

On the other hand, the Cubans have been suffering for years under Castro's dictatorship, and should be offered asylum.
Just my .02
Thursday's arrivals almost certainly will be granted asylum, like most Cubans who reach U.S. soil. Cubans intercepted at sea are usually returned to their communist homeland.

Well of course they'll try to take over Cuba. It's OBVIOUS. If you know the mindset of the old elite republicans, you know that they were pissed off when Castro took over and gave Cuba to the reds. They consider Cuba to be a part of the US, therefore must be under US puppet government.
They'll certainly try something.
MIAMI (Reuters) - While hundreds of U.S. law enforcement agents intercepted imaginary Cuban migrants during a massive training exercise in south Florida, two boatloads of actual Cubans sneaked ashore on Miami Beach on Thursday.
Boaters dropped off 21 Cuban migrants at a popular nudist beach and left 19 others on another beach a few hours later, the Border Patrol said. Both vessels escaped.
"It's our belief that they were the result of organized smuggling," Border Patrol spokesman Steve McDonald said.
