Pursuant to Obama Deal, Cubans Increasingly Desperate to Flee

Friday, January 22, 2016
Not only has the number of Cubans fleeing the island doubled since Obama's deal with Castro, but they are resorting to increasingly desperate measures not to be repatriated.

Clearly, the Obama-Castro deal has not improved the lives of Cubans. To the contrary, they are more desperate than ever to flee.

As the AP reports:

Security has been increased for Cuban migrants aboard Coast Guard vessels because more are jumping overboard, trying to poison themselves or suffering self-inflicted wounds in frantic attempts to be taken to U.S. shore for treatment, Capt. Mark Fedor said.

"It's been a dangerous uptick. The last six months, it's come to a head," Fedor said.
