The process of interviews is not working properly. The mistreatment of people is taking place out there.
We're not calling the people out as long as we see that Elian's case remains in the courts and the government is not moving to suddenly take Elian back to Cuba.
People would prefer to risk death rather than continue living there. People just get so fed up with the system they leave and risk their lives on the high seas.
I feel very happy. I feel that a principle right of citizens to ask the government to be heard has been granted, and the first victory is the government's for having listened to us.
God has heard our prayers and the doors have been opening in Washington for the government of the United States to listen to all our concerns and suggestions about the wet foot-dry foot policy.
We'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
We dropped anchor for a while to wait out the weather. But it got worse. We don't feel very good about this. We have put a lot of efforts behind this, but we can't beat the weather.
We have called off the protest for the moment, following the comments by the attorney general.
We have used civil disobedience in the past, but only when it has been absolutely necessary.
We can't abandon this place because if we do anyone can pick up the boy.
Unfortunately, we saw him reading a statement ... not talking in the loving way in which a father talks which suggests, perhaps, that the statement was written by someone else.
We are looking at the best interests of the people in this case.
The crew of the ship gathered money and clothes to help the migrants. They were very humane.
This will give them visas within 10 days. The other process could take 10 months, or a year or two.
We need to be more tolerant of people who think differently. We all created the monster, and we have to recognize that.
Cuba is the most crucial issue that motivates us. Each family has been divided.
Cuba is a nation divided by its government. Almost 20 percent of the population lives in exile. Almost every family unit has been stricken by that division, and it is time for that to end and the barriers that divide the Cubans to be brought down.
Our expectation is to make the wet foot/dry foot policy more humane. We're not asking the government to commence an open-door policy that would encourage people leaving Cuba to risk their lives in the Straits of Florida.
The most valuable asset that this country has ... is its civil rights. Migrants also have rights. They are human beings.
This is not a victory for us. This is a victory for justice.
This is not a campaign for immigrants. It is a movement for civil rights and defending of common human values.
It was the best gelatin and the best broth I've ever eaten.
It's a victory for justice and civil rights. It's a victory for people who have nothing at all except the dream of living in freedom.
Not only the court has decided it's wrong, but I think in general, the public believes that the building is part of the United States.
Apart from being illegal, it's a disgrace and a great insensitivity to a community that for three days has been asking that they not be repatriated.
Civil rights are universal and no company has the right to violate them. Immigrants have made an incredibly positive contribution to our society and their rights should be respected here in Miami, just as in any other part of the country.
The Cuban people are trapped between a cruel dictator in Cuba and nonsense policies ... on this side of the Straits of Florida.
