Rep. Gosar Introduces Bill to Repeal ‘Wet Foot, Dry Foot’ Cuban Amnesty

(CNS News, 10/29)

“U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) has introduced legislation to repeal “outdated policies” he says "provide amnesty to Cuban aliens" - including the Clinton-era “wet foot, dry foot” policy. The Ending Special National Origin-Based Immigration Programs for Cubans Act of 2015 would repeal the Cuban Adjustment Act of 1966, which originally allowed any Cubans who had been living in the U.S. for two years to become legal permanent residents. […] However, migrants who were intercepted by the U.S. Coast Guard at sea (“wet foot”) would be returned to Cuba. More than 2,600 Cubans were returned to the island between October 2014 and June 2015, the Associated Press reported. ‘I introduced a bill to terminate three outdated policies that provide amnesty to Cuban aliens and are costing taxpayers billions of dollars,’ Gosar said last week in a press release."
