The cost of Cuban migrants

It is irritating to think that Mr. and Mrs. John Public will soon have spent $1 million looking after Cuban migrants.

I thought our government had bragged about negotiating some wonderful deal with the Cuban government to repatriate these unfortunate people to their homeland? Some deal!

If Donald Trump was our representative, these people would be on a plane to Cuba almost as soon as their feet touched Cayman Islands soil!

I have a suggestion to make the repatriation process much more efficient … require government ministers to fund the various migrant costs out of their own pockets and not simply from the public purse. It will be impressive to see how quickly a couple of extra flights from Cayman to Cuba can be arranged!
