DeSantis: Cuban Migrants Have a Stronger Case for Political Persecution Than Others

‘It’s a total double standard [by the Biden admin]

DeSANTIS: “I think there is a political angle to it. The Cuban exile community I have been working with day after day. None of us have the appetite for a boat lift. We believe the fight for if the freedom of crew what is in Cuba. They don’t think it’s in our interest to have a big migration. But having said that, they have a stronger case for political persecution leaving a dictatorship than other migrants coming across the border because they want more economic opportunity. Some of these people have been victimized and trafficked by the cartels. But they don’t rate the same as leaving a communist dictatorship. It’s a total double standard, but it’s something we expected because a lot of their border policies is very political in nature and its intent."
