It is amazing that President Obama is competing with President Jimmy Carter for who has the most stupid and disastrous DREAM ACT and who will have had the most destructive administration to the country’s well being in the history of the United States.
The year was 1980 and the economy in Cuba was in shambles where the Cuban GDP shrank by 35%. Our genius president at the time was Jimmy Carter. He agreed along with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro to allow whoever wanted to leave Cuba to come and immigrate to the United States with no pre-conditions. The departure of these Cuban immigrants occurred from the Mariel Harbor in Cuba between April 15 and October 31 1980.
Not surprisingly, Obama’s DREAM ACT policies now allow anyone on the planet to walk, drive or fly to the United States with no pre-conditions. The new arrivals will also be allowed to apply for work permits and all welfare benefits.
Over 125,000 Cuban immigrants came into Florida and unemployment went up a whopping 50%. What do you think will happen to unemployment now that President Obama has announced to the whole planet that anyone can come and stay in the United States?
Criminals and the mentally ill
The Mariel boat lift started going badly when it was discovered that Castro emptied his prisons and asylums. He put the inmates on boats and sent them to Florida. Basically, President Carter created the necessary conditions so that the United States would be viewed as a dumping ground for the worst of the worst in society.
“Fidel Castro declared that those who were leaving the country were Lumpens (or undesirables) and the escoria (or scum) of Cuban society. America had been tricked into receiving Cuba’s undesirables among the refugees. Base-level cells of the Cuban Communist Party staged meetings at the homes of those known to be leaving the country. People were intimidated by these “repudiation meetings” (mitines de repudio) where the participants screamed obscenities and defiled the facades of the homes, throwing eggs and garbage, for hours. Those who opposed the intimidation became victims of the attacks themselves and lost their jobs or their seats at the college or university that they had been attending.Towards the end of the crisis, the repudiation meetings were forbidden, but the damage had already been done.
With no diplomatic ties or methods to distinguish refugee from inmate, many released inmates were eventually jailed in Florida for crimes they committed after their arrival.” More
Notice the last two lines of the above quote. The criminals that came from Castro’s emptied jails ended up in American jails. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano recently said that granting work permits and essentially permanent status to illegal aliens would allow DHS to focus on the criminal elements. How exactly are they going to know what is criminal and what is not as millions of immigrants start flooding the borders? How exactly are they going to know which ones have criminal records in their respective countries and which ones do not? The answer is that they simply do not know.Arizona alone gets 500,000 illegal immigrants per year passing through the state.
During the Mariel Boat lift the United States eventually absorbed the criminals exported from Cuba in its prisons.
“The Boat lift brought 125,000 Cubans to this country. Most were political dissenters or people seeking better economic opportunities. But Fidel Castro used the occasion to release hardened criminals – he called it flushing the toilets – and their arrival created mayhem in Miami.” More…
A version of the DREAM ACT was tried by President Jimmy Carter and was a flopping disaster. Now Obama is competing with President Carter to see which one will have the worst DREAM ACT concept in history. The game between Carter and Obama is to see which one is more stuck on stupid. Come to think of it maybe this is why Obama’s tenure as president is aptly called:” Jimmy Carter’s second term.”
If you think this is exaggerated read more about the Mariel boat lift to see how badly it affected Florida. Add that President Carter collapsed the economy just like Obama and brought the country 25% interest rates. We only wish that today things were as bad as in Jimmy Carter’s tenure. Obama will have exceeded Carter’s disasters by a thousand times by the time his one term will be over. These are times that you will never forget for as long as you live just as people who lived during the Great Depression!
