I can sympathize with their situation. But a part of me says screw them: they made their bed, and now they have to lie in it. The majority of the Cuban-American population in Florida voted for $hrub in 2000 as retaliation on the Clinton administration for the Elian Gonzalez incident. Their votes could very well have changed the outcome of the election.
Well, they succeeded in punishing Clinton-Gore, and now they're suffering the consequences!
