Before the little Cuban boy Elian Gonzales is sent back to Cuba, there are some questions that need to be asked and answered. How often did Elian's father see him and how much time did he spend with him one-on-one? How much money did his father give the mother each week for child support?
And now we have the grandmothers here wearing beautiful clothing and with hair neatly coiffured and not interested enough to cross the country to see their grandchild. Did they not realize in what desperate straits Elian's mother was in to risk her life, and the life of her child, to give him a future much better than he could have in Cuba?
Please think carefully.
