That group is the Cuban liberty-lovers who risk their lives at sea to flee the cruel grip of the Communist dictator Castro's illegal and totalitarian regime. The USA used to let them in, as refugees from tyranny -- until Bill Clinton came along, and George W. Bush after him.
Clinton never met an anti-Communist he liked. He decreed that Cuban refugees who managed to set foot on U.S. soil could stay here but that those caught at sea, even yards offshore, must be keelhauled back to Castro's goons. And "W" Bush has continued that evil practice.
This next week surrounding the Fourth of July, our annual celebrating of the winning of our liberty, is a great time for you and me to contact our Cardinal and our U.S. bishops and urge them to speak out against the monstrous Clinton-Bush "wet-foot, dry-foot" policy.
To get a glimpse into how awful is the Communist tyranny in Cuba, click on this post's title. You will enter Free-Biscet. org, a Website devoted to Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet, a physician whom Castro sentenced to 25 years in prison in 2003 for his pro-liberty activism. Castro had previously punished Dr. Biscet for his pro-life activism, incidentally. Pray for Dr. Biscet, who is in ill health and confined to a tiny cell, and for his wife Elsa Morejon, a pro-liberty activist herself.
It would be wonderful if every priest and bishop in L.A. and elsewhere who speaks out for illegals would plead for justice for the liberty-loving Cubans who seek haven in the USA.
