And they keep leaving.....

A US Cruiseship rescued 22 Cuban rafters off the coast of Mexico. The rafters, unfortunately, got lost in international waters trying to reach the US mainland, and ended up closer to Cancun (which has been happening more often lately). Unfortunately, we have seen also the treatment these Cubans get in Mexico. The Mexicans look more hypocritical everyday; requesting better treatment for their illegal immigrants in the US, requesting the US to accept the immigrants but at the same time repatriating and mistreating Cubans. Mexico has to make up their mind if they want the US to take their demands halfway seriously.
