Here is an interview with him by Michael Putney and Glenna Golden Milberg. Also Sally Heyman is interviewed, both she and Juan are discussing the County's Sanctuary policy.
Miami Beach passed a resolution that they are a sanctuary City. The County issue will be heard this Friday at County Hall at 10 am because the friggin' Mayor does not make policy even though he thinks he does. Get there early if you want a seat.
Where are the Republicans? In a County with 66.8% Hispanics you would think that they would care about this issue.
New news: Why is the County in such a friggin' rush to NOT be a sanctuary city? Nothing is happening now. Nothing Trump said about them is locked in stone. This would be a process. The funding cuts would have to go through the courts. Sanctuary cities would have to be defined by congress. The County Commission can change their status at anytime during the process. Mayor Gimenez is using the funding cut as a smokescreen and the Commissioners are partaking in the Kool-Ade he cooked up because they are covering for him instead of standing up tall and rejecting the beginning of "ANYONE THAT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE US HAS TO GO" Trump policy.
I hate to tell you Commissioners, but only Sally Heyman is palatable to the Alt Right. They couldn't give a crap about the rest. Daniella Levine Cava: Jewish -- the "Jewish Problem" is one of their bigley issues. Oh wait, Sally is Jewish too. There isn't anyone in this government safe from the alt right target list. They hate you all "minority folks." Hispanics, lets face it -- Cuban or not -- you are not liked by the Alt Right. They call Rubio "a Spic" on their websites. If you consider that Steve Bannon is the most powerful man in the country, than the Alt Right is in charge and their agenda will be followed: " At the Vatican he (Bannon) praised the rise of radical populist parties that promote a xenophobic brand of nationalism."
Message to Commissioners: NO RUSH - NO FUNDS GONE - IT IS A PROCESS - YOU HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO GIVE UP SANCTUARY STATUS - DON"T COVER FOR THE MAYOR WHO IS IN TRUMPS POCKET. Once upon a time Governor Christie was Trumps BFF, Trump turned on him big time. Don't feed Gimenez's ego to be Trump's Man of the minute and dump on your people instead. Anyway here is a video of the TV interview. Sally Heyman: You have time, you never ran scared before, why now?
Re the Commission Meeting where Juan Cuba was ejected: Cecilia Tavera-Webman said "No commissioner questioned Bovo. Or let me put it more bluntly, no commissioner was willing to do the right thing!!!"
The video footage of Juan is the first segment.
Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
