      Once these people reach US territory, they cannot be deported back to Cuba under NACARA (which basically says that any Nicaraguan or Cuban in this country -- even if they entered illegally, like these guys did -- are granted full amnesty).

      Iím not sure what to make of that. Itís not exactly fair to others trying to get into this country legally and have to wait years. It certainly encourages illegal immigration and rewards those that break the law.

      Ahhh...just another quark of our F|_|CKED up immigration system.

        I read that
        they were intercepted at sea by Coast Guard
        the converted Buick was shelled and sunk
        two of the passengers previously tried their lucks with the Chey'51 pick-up
        they were shipped back to Cuba.

          They said they will try again. "La tercera es la vencida" (The third try is the lucky one).

            Is that act still in effect, especially for Nicaraguans? I was under the impression that the Clinton administrartion in 94-95, either did away with that act or modified it to the extent that it made it more difficult for Cubans to be granted asylum in the US by entering the country by using such methods. I'll have to double check that.

              I was told that it still was. And even if if they "modified" it, they sure don't practice.

              I know that some of the BCIS service centers (especially the Texas Service Center) make Nicaraguan and other Central American amnesty claims their priority.

                You may think it's crazy to attempt to cross the Florida Strait in a Buick, but it's a hell of a lot safer than YYZ-HAV in a Cubana IL-62, let me tell you!

                  And a reason why florida is such a hell hole. When these people do make it over they provide nothing to the economy. Just a drain. Another seat in a classroom.

                    Since, they (as far two of them were concerned ) used first a Chevy Pick-up and a Buick Sedan (?), let's bet they will try either a Cad Fleetwood limo or a Pontiac convertible, just to show around how much they enjoy riding, albeit on a particular way, with GM products .....

                    More seriously, I give right to Iceman...

                      I have absolutely no problem with immigrants. My mother is an immigrant and now a naturalized US citizen. I do have a problem with: a) our pathetic immigration rules that encourage illegal immigration; and b) those that come in illegally to abuse the resources we have and make it difficult for legal immigrants (and not all illegals are like that).

                      Also, donít forget that there are loads of Americans who just sit on their ass all day and donít do jack. There are quite a few of those and they donít get a lick of respect from me. I actually respect those illegals who work hard more than some lazy Americans.

                      More seriously, I give right to Iceman...
                      Damn straight! LOL.

                          They should have just let them in...

                          We could use some more creativity over here.

                          While there at it, they should pack it full of rum and chicks.....
