    That's OK with me, it's a stupid policy aimed at getting the Cuban vote in Miami.

    Maybe Obama should ask his BFF Raul Catro to end the Socialist dictatorship in Cuba, so people wouldn't have to die trying to flee that leftist Utopia.

    Are they more oppressed than our friends the Chinese or the Saudis? I can't worry about their problems.
    As for Obama, he posed for a group picture in Havana that had as background a building with Che Guevara's mural.
    Either stupid or a commie.

    I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with this. It's Obama, so I must be missing something.

    Yes, they are. I think we need more people in our country who actually ascribe to its founding values. They are much more patriotic immigrants, in my experience, than people who come here and demand our country change to reflect their previously held values.

    He did Trump a favor, he doesn't have to risk losing votes to do it himself.

    Obama's Socialist fellow-travelers in Havana are embarrassed when its citizens risk life and limb, leave all belongings behind, in an effort to enjoy liberty.

    I suppose Obama would have returned East Berliners who managed to scramble over the wall before it was torn down.

    I'd rather have Europeans or Australians. They are not considered minorities and don't get preferential treatment. We have enough "special people" in a country where the vast majority of the people have minority status.

    But he won't deport illegals that are here.

    Yep, Europeans and Australians. That's a perfect strategy.

    There used to be an understanding of, and appreciation for, people who fled Communist dictatorships. I suppose these days many people don't remember the Cold War or the evils of Communism.

    Raul Castro is a better leader than Obama.

    One of them is slightly better than the other.

    This makes no sense. This is the opposite of what he really wants so why is he doing this? Maybe it's to make Trump deal with the flood that is coming?

    It must have something to do with making life harder for Trump. I'm not sure he cares about Cuba's embarrassment with this.

    He is a vindictive POS who will do all the damage he can for the next week. Who's turn is it to watch the little man?

    So, uh, now it's good to accept illegal immigrants from oppressive countries? You know where citizens really risk life and limb to leave? Iraq and Syria. Would it be a bad thing to turn them away? If Obama did it I guess it would. If Trump did it it'd be great. Sound about right?
