Seeking asylum from a Communist government that kills and starves you? Well, too bad. You might come here and vote the wrong way and the Biden administration can't have that.
Illegal immigration has been a massive problem ever since the Biden administration took power in Washington, and Democrats were content to pretend that the border crisis wasn't that bad.
It is, and they know it.
So far, they've sent Kamala Harris to countries south of the border for “investigative” reasons to see why illegal immigrants have come streaming across and even visited a safe border town with a friendly representative willing to shill over her, and she only did that because Trump was about to beat her to the border she didn't really want to visit in the first place.
But now Democrats are finally ready to get serious about illegal immigration and have said in no uncertain terms that if you come here illegally, we'll deport you faster than you can say “communism.” If you're the illegal immigrant in question, you'll probably be saying “communism” a lot, because the only immigrants the Democrats seem to be willing to really deport are Cubans.
As Nick Arama previously reported, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas stated that he isn't playing around with illegal immigrants from the people fleeing communism.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Haitian and Cuban migrants and asylum-seekers who try to come to the U.S. by boat will not be allowed to enter the country.
Even if asylum-seekers establish fear of persecution, they will be resettled in third countries, Mayorkas said.

It's interesting that Democrats are willing to turn a blind eye to everyone else as they stream across the border, resulting in the largest border crisis of our time, but they won't tolerate Cubans. Why?
Because if they get here and become American citizens, they'll very likely vote Republican. As Pew Research showed in 2020, Cubans tended to identify and vote for the Republican party more than any Hispanic group:
Nationwide, 58% of Cuban registered voters say they affiliate with or lean toward the Republican Party, while 38% identify with the Democratic Party or lean Democratic, according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted July 27-Aug. 2. By comparison, around two-thirds of Hispanic voters who are not Cuban (65%) identify as or lean Democratic, while 32% affiliate with the Republican Party.
Cubans tend to turn out more for elections than other Latino groups as well. So these Cubans flee communism, come here seeking asylum, work to become U.S. citizens, and then when looking at which party to vote for, they notice the Democrats leaning toward policies and spouting rhetoric that look and sound an awful lot like the kind of policies and rhetoric they fled.
They can't pull the lever for Republicans fast enough.
The Biden administration can't have that. All the rhetoric about being soft on those fleeing to America for a better life only applies to people who wish to vote for Biden and his fellow Democrats.
This is just another drop in the bucket of proof that Democrats don't actually care about people in need. What they care about most is power, and they'll do whatever it takes to get it including refusing people who are actually, legitimately seeking asylum from a government that murders and starves them in the name of political superiority.
