Regarding the recent letter on Cuba’s election process: Obviously, you believe the citizens of communist Cuba have a free election process there, fine enough to present to America as a shining jewel. So, why did so many of their people risk death to leave it behind? Didn’t they have a passport program and free travel rights? You should visit Miami and talk to the Cubans that survived the trip. Bet you get a totally different opinion.
