"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

"Wet Foot-Dry Foot" and One on the Banana Peel

"Wet foot-dry foot," is the Clinton-era immigration policy under which Cuban refugees who are not walking on land are sent back to the island dictatorship. Who thought up this ridiculous method of aiding oppression Fidel Castro style.
Remember Elian Gonzalez, he is now fully brainwashed. This may be the only time the Liberals "protected" Father's Rights by abducting a child from his home during the wee hours of the night to repatriate a little boy with his father and Fidel.
Fifteen people in Havana have reason to cheer the U.S. judicial system this week. A federal judge in Miami ordered federal officials to "use their best efforts" to help them return to the U.S.
Judge Federico Moreno ruled Tuesday that the U.S. Coast Guard acted illegally when it plucked the Cuban refugees, including two children, off an abandoned bridge in the Florida Keys on January 4 and repatriated them to Havana.
Without ruling on the legality of the wet foot-dry foot policy, the judge rejected the Coast Guard's reasoning that the refugees had not reached U.S. soil as "untenable and unreasonable." In an 11-page ruling, he wrote that the old bridge constituted U.S. territory, as determined under a 1993 legal opinion from the Justice Department. He even cited the Coast Guard Web site, which specifically mentions bridges as qualifying as U.S. soil.
It's time the Bush Administration side with this ruling and welcome individuals seeking freedom and sending a message to dictatorships. It's time congress do away with this sad legacy of Clinton. We site these following words for people everywhere seeking freedom from oppression.
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
