And in Cuban Reset News

I guess your average oppressed Cuban doesn't think that normalizing relations with America will lead to either prosperity or freedom in Cuba anytime soon.

The Cuban regime is unhappy with America (say it ain't so!):

Havana on Sunday blamed Washington for a surge of Cubans trying to reach the United States by land and sea, accusing the Obama administration of encouraging illegal and unsafe immigration.

Tens of thousands of Cubans over the last two years have flocked to the U.S.-Mexican border and taken to the sea in hopes of reaching Florida, fearing a growing detente between the Cold War foes will lead to a change in U.S. policy.

I'm sure that the Obama administration will explain that changing the law on Cuban refugees is meaningless since the administration doesn't really consider anyone who enters America an "illegal" migrant.

When the doors are wide open, nobody has any particular advantage or disadvantage.

And the Cubans probably committed a micro-aggression of some sort by calling that immigration "illegal."  Shame on them.
