<quoted text>He clearly said if 'they make it here.' If they do they are not deported.
The United States gives migrants from Cuba special treatment that no other group of refugees or immigrants receives.
It begins with the so-called “wet-foot, dry-foot policy” that puts Cubans who reach U.S. soil on a fast track to permanent residency. The government initiated the policy in 1995 as an amendment to the1966 Cuban Adjustment Act that Congress passed when Cold War tensions ran high between the U.S. and the island nation.
Under the amendment, when a Cuban migrant is apprehended in the water between the two countries, he is considered to have “wet feet” and is sent back home. A Cuban who makes it to the U.S. shore, however, can “dry feet” and can qualify for legal permanent resident status and U.S. citizenship.

"Migrants" from cuba are turned away regularly like every other group. But once here they should be treated like every other illegal...give them licenses, schooling, food, jobs, housing.

That wage says a lot about you. You claim to be well compensated then throw out 60k as a wage from your company.

Now that was truly scary, not determining by a persons education there motives behind voting. Didn't Obama win amongst college kids?

<quoted text>No you get health insurance, 401k, life insurance, dental, plus we sing happy birthday to you on your birthday.
So, you pay about $15K in benefits for a $40K employee?

How about a real pension plan instead of that crummy 401k?

People lose jobs, not "we" lose jobs. F*ck the collective.

Government needs to get out of the way and not continue to punish employers for hiring people.

Is that the norm? Is it safe to say the average panhandlers makes 60K per year? It's amazing how these conversations devolve.
