And this is news to who?

According to the AP Wire, Cubans are now trying to get to the United States through Mexico instead of trying to raft it to the keys.

Now, I understand that the Cuban population has it really hard, and as a result, many try to escape the island and lose their lives or their family members in the process. However, Cubans have been coming through Mexico for years now, is this really new to the U.S. government?

There has got to be a better way to help these people, because our policies for the last 50 years are obviously not working (for the record, I don't know the answer, so please don't flame me.) Instead, money is being fed to smugglers, and the people who really need the help are suffering the most.
