It's the smugglers, stupid.

See, it's not that I agree, or disagree with Cuban Americans financing the illegal smuggling of their relatives off the island. You could defend it with a stretch of "is it wrong to steal a loaf of bread to feed your starving family". And it's not that I want to argue that wet foot/dry foot policy is faulty and rewards illegal immigration. I can defend that with "Was the Underground Railroad morally right?". What gets me is the blame is not put on Cuba, and its policies of oppression. Former local TV journalist Mark Potter, who knows better from the time he spent in South Florida tells the tale here.
