The Biden administration this week warned Cubans trying to enter the U.S. by boat to deport them or send them to a third country – all of which are bringing in tens of thousands of migrants who have crossed the southern border.
“Let me clarify. If you go to sea, you won’t come to the United States,” Dertment National Security Secretary Alejandro Majorcas said this week about immigrants from Cuba and Haiti across the Straits of Florida.

As political protests against the authoritarian communist regime shake the country, there is a risk that migrants will flee. Majorcas said the DHS had not yet seen a sharp rise, but warned that incoming ones would not enter but could be sent to a third country.
“They are being returned by banned vessels. If individuals identify fears of persecution or torture, they will be sent to third countries for resolution,” he said. “They don’t enter the United States.”
While Majorcas’s comments do not reflect the new policy pursued by the DHS, and such a policy has been pursued by various administrations over the years, this is in stark contrast to the Biden administration’s approach to the southern border.
There, the administration ended Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols (MPs), which held immigrants in Mexico, and asylum co-operative agreements (ACAs), agreements with the Northern Triangle, where migrants are not sent to the U.S. but there they had to seek asylum.
In addition, while it is expelling lonely adults through health protection tool 42, it does not expel migrant families or neglected children – and accelerate the process of processing families and children and sending them to the United States. focused. often without trial days.

His remarks criticized double standards on the right and led to accusations of brutality on the left.
“Why doesn’t he tell the illegal people who have crossed our southern border about it?” Texas spokeswoman Lance Gooden tweeted.
NBC News Meanwhile, human rights activists reported on how they described the decision as “shameful” and “hopeless”.
Among these criticisms was the difference between those encountered on land and those encountered at sea.

Chad Wolf, a former DHS secretary, told Acesparks that the approaches on each issue were inconsistent and that Cuban citizens entering through the southern border could be processed in the U.S. and not sent to a third country – that’s all. it is different from what happens if they come in a boat.
“If you’re a Cuban and you reach Mexico and cross the southern border illegally, they won’t take you back to a third country,” he said in an interview this week. “If you’re Cuban and you want to escape by boat across the Strait of Florida, then they’re not very fit, according to the secretary.”
He said the administration’s policy of maritime bans, i.e. sending migrants to third countries, is similar to the border policy that the Biden administration quickly removed during the Trump administration.
“If they want to relocate asylum seekers to a third country, that’s exactly what the Trump administration did for the southwest border, so we had ACAs, so we had MPP – that’s the whole strategy, ”he said.
“It has to be politics, it doesn’t matter how you came to the country, it has to be politics wherever we are, and that’s the policy we’ve worked on and achieved in the Trump administration that won’t be the haste and crisis we see today. “, he said.
A DHS spokesman told Acesparks that there had been no change in policy and that there had long been a policy of returning prisoners at sea to be relocated to their own nationality or a third country.
“Individuals encountered on U.S. territory are being processed under laws that regulate such recycling. Migration to a third country is an opportunity for those banned at sea,” the spokesman said.
There are also records of human rights in rticular countries. The communist regime in Cuba is known for its brutality against those who oppose it. Wolf notes that his record is the worst in the hemisphere, and so one can expect citizens from there to prioritize seeking asylum.
“This administration talks a lot about the need to protect the originals and the persecuted, and I think at least all the countries we have seen in this hemisphere, with the exception of Venezuela, are probably the most oppressive government we have. “he said. “Well, why don’t they allow people from Cuba to move to the U.S., just like people from Guatemala, if they’re more likely to seek asylum in Cuba.”
The debate comes amid growing pressure on the White House on Cuba, as well as questions about the management of the southern border.
On Friday, the Customs and Border Protection (Border Guard) announced that more than 188,000 migrants had clashed at the border, including more than 55,000 family units. Only more than 8,000 of these family units were recaptured through the 42nd.
