The Man Without a Country Déjà Vu

In a chilling déjà vu of The Man Without a Country by Edward Everett Hale
An example of how in terms of cooperation with us Cuba fails
David Panaque, an illegal alien from Cuba, was supposed to have been to Cuba deported
Over two years ago after serving time but a slight problem arose and deportation was aborted
Cuba, alarmed with his criminal record, refused to take him back
Since he had served his time our ability to extend his prison stay ICE lacked
While under “supervision” he last month shot and killed a man at point blank
Cuba’s policy of not accepting dirty human laundry ICE manques
37,000 Cubans are awaiting deportation back to the island nation
Yet only in 500 cases has Cuba allowed that determination
If convicted and sentenced to death or life without parole
He will fail in killing another human soul
But if a lesser sentence imposed and Cuba does not relent
Back out on the streets and another life in the future possibly spent
