Cuban immigrants are collecting American welfare checks

U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen says she’s outraged that some Cuban immigrants are collecting American welfare checks only to return to the island for family vacations or a better life.

“We need to shut that down,” she told Jim DeFede on CBS4’s “Facing South Florida” on Sunday.

The question is, will the dean of South Florida’s congressional delegation — the longest-serving Cuban-American in Congress — use her considerable influence to change the law that lets some Cuban immigrants commit welfare fraud?

On that, unfortunately, the jury is still out.
