The family of Alejandro Tamayo Chacón managed to record the violent arrest of the 23-year-old by Cuban repressive forces, seen on Sunday in several videos on Twitter, shortly after the administration of leftist President Joe Biden deported him and his two associates photographed trying to reach the United States on a boat. bike.
The US Coast Guard released photos of the strange watercraft and its passengers rippling in the sea in a July 13 press release confirming the “repatriation” of 77 refugees to the murderous Castro family regime that day alone. Wednesday (July 13), boasting that the Coast Guard has deported more than 3,000 Cuban refugees at sea since October.
The Biden administration’s zealous campaign to deport Cuban refugees trying to escape communism by sea, the vast majority of whom attempt the journey independently, contrasts sharply with Washington’s lethargic efforts to stem the flow of migrants north. from the southern border of the United States. where massive human trafficking operations linked to violent drug cartels and other organized crime dominate traffic.
The video of the arrest taken by Tamayo’s family was published on the social network Twitter. Tamayo’s wife lamented that the police broke into her house without a court order or any other document and the authorities have yet to clearly explain what evidence they have that Tamayo committed a crime beyond trying to flee the country.
The video shows Tamayo trying to run back to his family and screaming as uniformed police brutally drag him away.

Tamayo’s wife stated that the Cuban was being accused of “resistance,” without specifying whether he was referring to resisting arrest or a permutation of the commonly used crime of contempt, or “lack of respect” for the regime. She also claimed that police accused Tamayo of stealing the water bike used in an attempt to reach the United States.
“They said they stole the water bike, but they don’t have any kind of proof,” she insisted. “I asked to see it, they didn’t show it to me.”
“I am very disturbed, very hurt, very stressed because they entered my house without a warrant, they entered as they wanted,” she continued. “They did not respect that I am eight months pregnant.”
The Castro regime has ruled Cuba for 63 years without regard to due process or human rights, beginning its time in power with the widespread use of firing squads and since then, evolving into the use of tactics designed to mask its brutality, such as beating and arresting known dissidents regularly, sometimes weekly, but without charging or sentencing them, and then denying that the island is home to political prisoners. Mounting evidence of anti-communist resistance since the July 11, 2021 protests across the country has led to door-to-door raids, an improved penal code that guarantees longer sentences and higher punishments for disloyalty to communism, and mass trials in which children have received sentences. nearly two decades in prison for participating in peaceful protests.
Before the administration of far-left President Barack Obama, of whom Biden was vice president, Cubans trying to arrive by sea could remain in the country under a policy known as “wet foot/dry foot.” Obama repealed the policy as part of a broader pro-Castro policy implemented during his term, essentially forcing Cubans to choose the dangerous route north from countries friendly to the communist regime that do not require visas, such as Guyana and Nicaragua.
The policy change has proven to be a boon to international human smuggling operations that do not benefit from independent attempts by Cubans to reach Florida by sea. Human traffickers made up to $1 billion in revenue smuggling people into the United States from Mexico in December 2021 alone.
The southern border of the United States under Biden is the deadliest land crossing in the world, the International Organization for Migration, a United Nations agency, concluded in a report released this month. The report’s author noted that 2021 was the deadliest year for the border “even before” the Chinese coronavirus pandemic and added a disclaimer that the UN statistics are likely “an undercount.”
“More than 1,238 lives have been lost during migration in the [North, Central and South] Americas in 2021, including at least 51 children,” the report reads. “At least 728 of these deaths occurred at the US-Mexico border crossing, making it the deadliest land crossing in the world.”
However, the emphasis on lessening the danger to migrants under Biden has remained on preventing Cuban refugees from going to sea, while not preventing other migrants, including Cuban refugees, from taking the land route.
In its press release last week, the Coast Guard boasted of having deported 77 Cubans on July 13, all attempting to reach America on what the agency described as “rustic vessels.”

“Coast Guard crews maintain an active presence with air and sea assets every day through the Florida Straits to help save lives by removing people from unsafe environments,” Lt. Travis Poulos, Coast Guard District Seven, said in the press release. “Our crews help prevent people from losing their lives in these dangerous attempts.”
