Border Agents Catch Another Wave of Illegal Aliens From Cuba Amid Escalating Spike

    Brittany M. Hughes | 10 hours ago

    Less than two full weeks into the new year, U.S. border agents are already warning of an escalating wave of illegal migration from Cuba, highlighting yet another leak in our porous southern border and countering President Obama’s narrative that U.S. relations with Cuba have been normalized following improvements in the communist nation.

    To date, CBP officials report having rescued 49 illegal aliens from Cuba who became stranded on Mona and Monito, two tiny islands belonging to Puerto Rico and under U.S. jurisdiction. Smugglers often transport Cuban migrants to the islands and leave them to by picked up by the U.S. Coast Guard, who then transport them to the United States for immigration processing.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
