Some Spanish speakers are more equal than others...
When it comes to hardworking Spanish-speaking illegal aliens from Cuba, a communist country adjacent to the United States, the majority of whom are likely to honor their culture while becoming Americans, and who vote with constitutional conservatives against communists and socialists -- can’t have that!
But, when it comes to Spanish-speaking illegal aliens from another country adjacent to the United States, who rarely assimilate and are likely to vote for communists and socialists -- come on in!
Secretary Mayorkas Overviews U.S. Maritime Migrant Interdiction Operations
Thank you for being here today. DHS is closely monitoring conditions on the ground in Haiti and Cuba.
The Biden-Harris Administration and the Department of Homeland Security are committed to supporting the Haitian people. DHS recently sent 3 officials as part of an inter-agency delegation to Haiti in response to the Haitian government’s request for security and investigative assistance. We are committed to supporting the Haitian government as it seeks justice in this case and we affirm the United States’ support for the people of Haiti.
We also stand in solidarity with the Cuban people and their call for freedom from the repression and economic suffering that the Cuban’s authoritarian regime is causing. DHS is working with our partners to support the Haitian and Cuban people.
The Coast Guard, along with our state, local, and federal partners are monitoring any activity that may indicate increases in unsafe and irregular maritime migration in the Florida straits, including unpermitted vessel departures from Florida to Cuba.
The time is never right to attempt migration by sea. To those who risk their lives doing so, this risk is not worth taking. Allow me to be clear: if you take to the Sea, you will not come to the United States.
Homeland Security Task Force Southeast, headed by the Coast Guard's Seventh District Commander, is responsible for the DHS response to maritime migration. This task force has been in place for more than 18 years and it exists to prevent and respond to maritime migration in the Caribbean. Our mission and operations in the Southeast remain unchanged and we will continue to interdict migrants attempting to enter the United States irregularly.
The Coast Guard maintains a continual presence in the Florida straits and the Caribbean Sea, particularly around Puerto Rico and our maritime approaches, patrolling with air and sea military assets. Any migrant intercepted at sea, regardless of their nationality, will not be permitted to enter the United States. Migrants who do attempt to enter the United States by sea put their lives at incredible risk. The waters in the straits of Florida in the Caribbean are dangerous, especially now as we have entered hurricane season. People will die.
The transit is dangerous and unforgiving. We have seen 20 lives lost in recent weeks, as a result of these dangerous voyages. In addition, the threat of serious illness when boarding vessels in subpar conditions is greater at this time, during a pandemic.
Again, I repeat: do not risk your life attempting to enter the United States illegally. You will not come to the United States.
We, the Department of Homeland Security, and this Administration remain committed to supporting the Haitian and the Cuban people, and we will continue our efforts in this regard. <Source>
With the progressive communist democrats, immigration is about accepting communism and voting democrat.
We are so screwed.
