Cubans reach Florida in boat named for ‘tremendous’ Obama

LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA, FLA.
A group of Cuban migrants made it to Florida aboard a makeshift sailboat
they christened for “the tremendous” Barack Obama.

In news photographs posted by the Sun Sentinel, the small wooden boat
appears handmade with a tarp for a sail. On one side, “Barack Obama” is
written in yellow along with shorthand in Spanish for “the tremendous.”

A from Texas, Cathy Crawley, told the newspaper that she saw
several people jump from the boat Monday evening and start “kissing the
beach” at Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. Under U.S. policy, Cubans who reach
U.S. shores usually are allowed to stay and pursue citizenship.

Four men and two women aboard the boat told reporters they had been at
sea for nine days. Local media reported that one woman is pregnant.
