Cuban immigrants who illegally migrate to the U.S. are allowed to stay once they set foot on American soil.
With the “wet foot, dry foot” policy, Cubans who make it to shore can stay becoming eligible for permanent residence under the Cuban Adjustment Act.
This law shows favoritism toward a certan group of people (Cubans). Which is not fair for other people who legally apply for asylum from their own countries. The Cuban excuse is always that Fidel Castro is after them. If that's the case then all countries should have the option to "get way" from whomever is after them. I doubt that Fidel would be after all those people who illegally migrate. They just take advantage of the benefit they have to just touch soil without having to file paper work and wait years for residency.
We, the undersigned, call on the U.S. Government to end the "Wet foot, Dry Foot" policy.
