Florida Plays Out Drill For Mass Exodus from Cuba


cbs4.com

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.

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.

It looks like the training exodus may have given them some embarrassment. 21 snuck ashore during the exercise

I have mixed feelings about this. One the one hand, I can see the need to protect our borders. On the other hand, the Cubans have been suffering for years under Castro's dictatorship, and should be offered asylum. It will pay off for us when Cuba is finally liberated and they return to their homeland.

Just my .02

They pretty much always grant asylum to someone who is escaping a communist regime, its not the same as someone illegally crossing from Mexico for work. If you look in the article, it even says they will most likely be allowed to stay:


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.

..........................They did that drill because they think there would be a mass exodus from Cuba.... not on any plans to invade Cuba....

Castro can't live forever, and his health is deteriorating more and more.

While his death might not change completely the regime in Cuba, it might create enough chaos that an exodus could occur.

BTW, meanwhile this drill was being done in some beaches, there were 40 Cubans who sneaked into the U.S. during the second day of that drill.


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.

Anyways, the U.S. government knows that if most Cubans had a chance, they would come to the U.S.

The Cuban people have lived and experienced the lies, death and suffering brought from the "revolutionaries of the world', also known as Communists, revolutionary socialists, red socialists, or even plain old socialists, and most of them would never fall again to the same lies.
