Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, himself the son of Cuban immigrants, has promised to champion immigration reform that would pave a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented residents. Though, many are frustrated that the Republican really hasn't done much of any actual work on the issue, so they decided to send him a Christmas present. A group of about a dozen young immigrant children showed up to his home to sing Christmas Carols.

See, political protest doesn't always have to be so angry. Sometimes it can be adorable.

The group waved signs that read, "Less Talk, More Action."

However, it appears that Diaz-Balart wasn't home at the time. According to the Associated Press, police did show up on the scene, but only asked the carolers to stay on the public sidewalk.

They would rather stand around complaining about a flat tire rather than change the tire or call for help.


Ted Cruz and  Mario Diaz-Balart,leana Ros-Lehtinen. marco rubio/other cubans have credibility on immigration issues when they advocates that immigrants from other countries are treated the same as those from their homeland – Cuba. So either grant automatic legal status as soon as they set foot on American soil, or make Cubans go through the same process as any other immigrant. Until then, just another hypocrite.

Twenty immigrants who were trying to pretend they had dry feet were caught red-handed. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement rounded up the suspects for posing as Cuban immigrants in order to take advantage of the U.S. amnesty policy. The arrests are part of a growing trend in which immigrants buy forged Cuban documents to claim amnesty in America.

"These individuals came here seeking the freedom and benefits this country provides to Cuban nationals. The operation identified and addressed a vulnerability in the application process," Alysa Erichs, special agent in charge of ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Miami, said in a statement. "These arrests by HSI should send a clear message that we will target anyone who tries to obtain immigration benefits fraudulently."

There should not be a "wet foot, dry foot" policy. Cubans should be subject to the same immigration requirements as any other would be immigrant. No special treatment.
