  •  Don't underestimate their intelligence level... (0+ / 0-)

    because that is exactly the way it works here in South Florida. Cubans have positions of authority, but

        is an opportunist, but very much controlled. I am surprised he got himself tangled in the immigration weeds, but also confident he'll find a way to weasel out of it in a way that appeals to the right flank...
