Obama shows his appreciation to Castro for his recent lovely family vacation by sending back a dissident who supports Democracy in Cuba. Hmm. Anyone recall how the Clinton’s had Eric Holder send back the six-year-old Elian Gonzalez? Could someone ask Hillary about it? Better good old Bill? Here tis:
Odd how after slavishly licking the boots of the Cuban dictator that Obama finally gets around to actually deporting someone.
Living for nearly half a century in the United States offers no guarantee that one can stay.
That is a reality now facing Cuban exile activist Ramón Saúl Sánchez, leader of the Democracy Movement, who received a letter Thursday from the federal government ordering him to leave the country as soon as possible. The order arrived just as he planned to sail across the Florida Straits as part of a flotilla off the coast of Cuba, organized as a show of solidarity with political prisoners in Cuban jails.
Sánchez, who obtained legal entry into the U.S. in what is known as a “parole,” had applied for permanent residency in 2002 so he could legally travel aboard the many flotillas he has organized over the years and return easily to the United States.
That permanent residency request has been denied and his parole has now also expired, according to the letter issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
“You are not authorized to remain in the United States and should make arrangements to depart as soon as possible,” stated the letter, dated April 7 and received by Sánchez on Thursday. “Failure to depart may result in your being found ineligible for immigration benefits and inadmissible to the United States in the future.”
Anyone else recall how the Clinton’s handled this one too?
And yet it was (then) Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder, under President Clinton, who concocted the “legal” cover for the INS to mace, kick, stomp, and gun-butt their way into the home of Elian Gonzalez’s legal custodians (legal U.S. citizens and residents all) on the morning of April 22, 2000, wrench a bawling 6-year-old child from his family at machine-gun point, and bundle him off to Castro’s terror-sponsoring fiefdom, leaving 102 people (legal U.S. citizens and residents all) injured, some seriously.
