“These Haitians left their homeland in a desperate attempt to escape the horrendous political, social and economic conditions in Haiti.” — a letter sent by South Florida’s three Cuban-American members of Congress regarding the 101 refugees being held at the Broward Transitional Center. Also: Day 12 of the hunger strike. Information on how to help at FANM. BTW, the cost of applying for a green card is about to go up from $325 to $905. Rick pretty well lays out how messed up that is.

    Yeah, and while they starve themselves, new arrivals from Cuba gorge themselves on coffee, hot chocolate and donuts at the Rickenbacker toll plaza.

    Go figure.
