His name would make a great movie title, even if the story could be more inspiring. Grass Rodriguez
, the man who sailed a '59 Buick from Cuba, will finally leave Guantanamo with his group for Costa Rica as official refugees. It may not be America but it will be a free country all the same.
Sometimes I think we do too little to stop illegal immigration and too much to discourage real refugees, especially Cubans. While we shouldn't encourage people to risk their lives sailing unsafe rafts, we should let all the refugees in. Grass Rodriguez and his people never should have had to resort to a hunger strike to get action taken.
