I sure hope President Biden is making a concerted effort to reach out to the people of Cuba

This is a chance to make some positive inroads with the Hispanic community of Florida since he did so poorly with them in the last election, and Cuban Americans aren't likely to forget his endeavor. I hate to look at their growing misfortune this way, but the other side is cheating blatantly. We need to seize hold of every opportunity that comes along, and this one is golden. It may work, it may not work, but as the saying goes, nothing ventured nothing gained.

1. Maybe, as they say, we can do well, by doing good

2. Yes

Biden is a man of compassion, he needs to cling to this, not just the statement yesterday, and then move along nothing here to see. Let the people there know that he feels their pain. They need Covid-19 shots... maybe there's something there he can work on.

3. The Cubans are lured by hate

when they washed up on the beaches of Florida, President John F Kennedy, Speaker Rayburn then Speaker McCormack (the Democratic Party) reached out with a safety net to provide food and shelter, etc.

But the Cubans gravitated to the hate language towards Castro's Cuba of Jesse f*cking Helms and Strom f*cking Thurmond, and the Cubans have voted republican since.

I guess we should have cursed and waved our fists more.
