Refugees or Scammers?

For sure the well intentioned refugees from the oppression of the Castro Brothers continue to seek freedom in the United States. The Wet foot/ Dry Foot policy is controversial and professional smugglers risk lives for dollars. But now a new realization that some of those on board the smugglers boats might not have any desire other than get to the U.S. , generate scams and head back to Cuba with hundred of thousands if not millions in cash.  Law enforcement of the state and federal level are well aware of medical fraud, insurance fraud and home mortgage fraud that leads to newly arrived refugee who after a year or so skip back to Cuba just ahead of the long arm of the law. The question is are they, the bad guys, doing this on their own or are the getting help from the Castro government? Who shares in the cash?  The story is just now bubbling to the forefront and maybe the next reason local exiles want the wet foot/dry foot policy scuttled.
