On April 17, the Herald had an editorial, Repeal the Cuban Adjustment Act of 1966, while columnist Fabiola Santiago was trying to do a spin on Marco Rubio’s push to end the Act. Santiago seems to think that Cubans who receive free medical care and free education in Cuba have a right to come to this country and receive Social Security and Medicaid benefits.
Surely she knows that’s the reason they’re leaving Cuba for America by the hundreds of thousands is free money. I don’t see starving people in Cuba.
She talks about stripping immigrants of benefits. Is she kidding? She is trying to make Americans feel guilty about putting an end to this giveaway. No other immigrants get this favorable treatment. Why continue it for Cubans?
