Both Republican Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart have failed to put constant immigration reform pressure on Speaker John Boehner thus far that affects millions of other Latino groups currently living here. In fact both Cuban American Republicans have put a lot of passionate efforts with regard to meddling in Venezuelan foreign affairs beyond our borders instead of focusing and taking care of Homeland business first. Millions are living in the shadows of society here in our Homeland right now.
Here (below) you can see how passionate Rep. Diaz-Balart is when it comes to Venezuela, yet does not appear to work in the same passionate spirit for the Central American kids experiencing a humanitarian crisis.
How is a Venezuelan immigrant (Diaz-Balart and Ros-Lehtinen are pushing for) any different than a Central American kid?
When will Cuban Republican leadership let go of their 40 years of welfare and give those funds to others who really need it, too? Or at the very least...share what generous tax payers give in the name of refugee acts of kindness.
Notably, GOP Speaker Boehner is directly responsible for obstructing the forward movement of legal immigration reform and he compounded a gridlock atmosphere when he threatened to sue Obama, even though the House Representatives led by Republicans have not put legal immigration for vote even though the Senate passed immigration reform over a year ago. To date we have not seen any Cuban American Republican leadership denounce Speaker Boehner's lawsuit against the President of the United States for his immigration policies like DACA helping DREAM Act students.
In order for Cuban American politicians to have a decent level of street credibility with their constituents and voters of Latin descent (particularly during Presidential election cycles when they attempt to woo Mexican American voters underscoring their "Hispanic" surnames), we need to see these Cuban American Republican politicians work with the same fervor they had when they fought for Elian Gonzalezto stay in our Nation. The majority of us in the southwestern part of the United States believe Cuban amnesty is one of the reasons Cuban American leaders do not conduct themselves with the same level of urgency the rest of us have in support of legal immigration reform.
We demand Diaz-Balart and Ros-Lehtinen to work for those Central American kids fleeing corruption the saw way they do for Cuban and Venezuelan immigrants.
