The 20 Cubans who came ashore on Marco Island Tuesday are now free. Federal authorities processed and released them all because they reached U-S soil before authorities could intercept them. Speaking today in Port Charlotte, Republican Congressman Mark Foley said this country needs to do a better job policing its borders.
“Not only are we going to have emphasize tightening our borders which we should do anyway. But we’re also going to have to provide a level of protection in the Caribbean and the Gulf Coast and the Atlantic based on what’s happening in Cuba today. Based on what can happen in Haiti on any day in order to enforce and enhance enforcement.”
