US isn't going to end the embargo and "normalize" relations with the Castro regime to make it easier for Cuban ballplayers to make it to the big leagues. But there are actions the government and MLB can take together to eliminate some incentives for corruption in the process.

Time for the USG and MLB to work together to fix this.

Senator Rubio's remarks in response to the nonsense professed by his colleague on return from Havana were forthright and compelling.  Coincidentally, on the same day I participated as a panelist  at Boston College Law School addressing immigration issues affecting Cuban baseball players in the United States.  I see little hope for change in the forseeable future.  Faced with severe restrictions on liberty imposed by a deteriorating but still brutal totalitarian regime, these players see no choice other than to risk their lives and futures by hiring low-life smugglers to "guide" them on the treacherous journey to freedom so they can pursue their life dreams of playing in the major leagues - and, yes, of being enormously compensated for their talent.  Labeled as "defectors" in the media and branded as "traitors"
in Cuba, they make the untenable choice to leave families behind facing uncertain dangers in the hope that they will one day be reunited to live their lives in freedom.   While there may be little the US government can do in Havana to encourage Cuban athletes to pursue a career in our professional sports leagues, there are changes we can make to our immigration and visa laws that will make the rules for Cubans conform with those for other international players as well as to facilitate their reunification with family members left behind.

George Will clearly understands the complexities of immigration reform. GOP leaders must unite behind a common vision, force Dems to accept responsible compromise and move legislation.  Uphill battle but it is in the national interest of the United States.
