Jeff Flake and Mitt Romney both support Cuban Amnesty under Cuban Adjustment Actby President of Somos A. Bustos on Sep. 20, 2011, under Latino Get Out the Vote for 2012
Jeff Flake and Mitt Romney both support Cuban Amnesty under Cuban Adjustment Act, but why did Congressman Jeff Flake introduce and vote an amendment to deny the Bush administration funds to enforce the travel ban. Furthermore, why is Jeff Flake encouraging this when Cuban immigrants receive government benefits and privileged amnesty only to go back on extended vacation? Why is Flake encouraging immigrants to go back with extended vacations in Cuba that they are fleeing from? Why are tax paying dollars being utilized in helping Cuban immigrants extend their vacation in Cuba.
Cuban immigrants come to the United States to flee the corruption of Fidel Castro. Jeff Flake has no business encouraging the opposite.
Furthermore, we are sick and tired of politicians like Jeff Flake and Mitt Romney who support amnesty for Cubans but do not want to help fix the broken immigration system. FACT CHECK for Mr. Romney and Mr. Flake to understand: Of the total Hispanic population, those of Mexican descent make up almost 70% of the total Latino population. By Romney and Flake supporting Cuban amnesty ticks us off further when they ignore the largest segment of the Latin population pie — Mexican Americans.
What is worse is Jeff Flake lives in the southwest — not Florida. Jeff Flake forgot that those of Mexican descent will do what it takes for Wil Cardon to win the GOP primary elections because of his complete ignorance on Latin issues.
U.S. House passes amendments to ease Cuba embargo 9/9/2003 MSNBC: ”Lawmakers passed by a 227-188 vote an amendment introduced by Arizona Republican Jeff Flake to a larger Transportation and Treasury spending bill. The Flake amendment seeks to deny the Bush administration funds to enforce the travel ban, without formally lifting the ban itself. A similar amendment passed last year in the House by a broader 262-167 margin but was stymied in the Senate. Embargo opponents say the Senate is now more receptive to a lifting of the travel ban.”
