A repatriation that didn't make sense

March 3, 2006

Miami Herald- Editorial Opinion

U.S. District Judge Federico A. Moreno made the legal call that many South Floridians protesting the 'wet-foot, dry-foot' policy argued last month: The 15 Cubans found on the old Seven Mile Bridge in January were on U.S. territory. Thus, Judge Moreno ruled this week that the Coast Guard had illegally repatriated the Cubans and, for the first time under the 10-year-old policy, ordered the U.S. government to try to get those Cubans back into the United States.
