  • Muslims are the kings when it comes to special treatment. Cubans need special treatment because they want leave a Communist country.

  • You are the one who is a hater by thinking one group of people should receive preferential treartment over another.

  • Hater, too bad for you United States thinks otherwise..

  • Good for Costa Rica! Cubans are NOT entitled to special treatment and their situation is not half as bad as those in other countries such as Honduras, Haiti, and El Salvador.

  • Ouch! Touching a nerve, am I?

  • When someone asks you what time it is, does your answer include references to Elio Delgado, the Castros, and how horrible life in Cuba is?

  • Once again, obviously these Cubans did not read the posts written by Elio Delgado Legon nor any of the commentaries written by the various Castro sycophants who promote the joys of living under Castro tyranny. Who would put themselves through this drama of moving from country to country on their way to the US and leave all the free health care, free education and low birthrate that Castros’ Cuba offers?
