I personally think it's disgusting and it only encourages rafters from crossing the shores.
Perhaps it encourages them a bit, but it doesn't apply to Haitans and many still try to migrate in boats. Permanent residency also doesn't apply to people from other countries, yet it doesn't seem to be much of a deterrence.

The Hatian topic is something that's really touchy around here. I'd think that the fact that the wet-foot dry-foot policy exists in this first place gives the Hatian people hope. If we were to flat out deny anyone from arriving here on a makeshift raft, it wouldn't be so much of an option.

Interesting site I came upon today: http://www.miamiherald.com/multimedi...zle/index.html

Be sure to click on the puzzle pieces to check out the videos. It feels pretty balanced to me, showing the supporters of Castro in the country. But of course, those dissenters have to hide behind the lens to protect themselves.
