Twelve Cuban would-be immigrants fashioned a 1951 Chevy pickup–Cuba is the last place in the world where they still drive those–into a boat. Here it is:

The Cubans navigated their pickup/boat to within 40 miles of the U.S., when they were intercepted by the Coast Guard and returned to Cuba.
I’ll leave the details of immigration policy to Michelle Malkin, but I don’t understand why anyone who is this ingenious, and goes this far to become an American, should be turned back. Above all Cubans, who are fleeing tyranny and who have proven themselves to be exemplary citizens.
