Biden Military Steps In to Stop Americans from Rescuing Cubans Seeking Freedom

Western Journal

The Biden administration, which is right now operating what is essentially an open border, is warning Americans with boats against helping Cubans who might attempt to escape from communism.

WFOR-TV reported on Tuesday that the Department of Homeland Security sent a specific warning to South Florida boaters regarding plans to travel to Cuba to help those under the iron fist of authoritarianism.

“It is illegal for boaters to depart with the intent to travel to Cuba for any purpose without a permit,” DHS said.

The agency further warned that any American who enters Cuban waters without permission from the U.S. Coast Guard could be fined $25,000 a day and might spend a decade in prison.

Additionally, should any Floridians make it to Cuba and back with a refugee, they could be fined $250,000 daily while also facing five years in prison.

A flotilla of boaters was scheduled to depart from Florida on Monday, but the convoy is now planned for Thursday.



 

One of the flotilla organizers, Osdany Veloz, said the flotilla will not enter Cuban territorial waters but intends to get close enough to let those suffering under communism know that they are not alone.

If 100 boaters show up, the group will set sail, WFOR reported.

Another man signaled that the group will not be deterred on its mission to show the Cuban people support.

“The purpose is to stay on the border, not trespassing, stay in international water and just let the Cuban people know we’re also fighting for their freedom, so once and for all they can be a free country,” Jorge Lopez said.

Meanwhile, in this free country, the government seems to be siding with the communists in Havana.

The agency threatening boaters not to go into Cuban waters is the same one that is supposed to protect our country’s border with Mexico. We all know how that’s going.

Democrats don’t want anti-communism Cuban refugees here, and we can presume that it is political. People who escape from communism aren’t likely to find a new home and then vote for a party run by Marxists.

Meanwhile, we know Democrats are counting on a generation of voters from Mexico and Central America.

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas stated the obvious about the intersection of immigration and politics on Twitter on Tuesday.

“The only immigrants Joe Biden and Kamala Harris don’t want to come to America are Cubans,” he tweeted.

Cruz is probably over the target here.

Democrats and the politicized military would probably send Navy aircraft carriers into Cuban waters to load them up with dissidents if they thought their arrival in the U.S. would benefit Democrats in future elections.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

Western Journal

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
