Op-ed: GOP Candidates' Unending Immigration Debate-With Themselves
Mar 6, 2015 0 0
Fifty years ago a Cuban immigrant named Jose Orlando Padron opened a six-foot-wide storefront in Little Havana. He put his own name on cigars made by one roller, sold them for a quarter apiece, and took the baby steps to make a living in his new home. He never dreamed he would end up running a cigar company that makes 6.5 million handmade cigars a year, one of the cigar world's most impressive success stories.

Thirty-five years ago, while studying in Wisconsin, my parents would overnight the occasional "Cuban Care Package". This consisted primarily of Cuban pastries, which were not available in that part of the country. Today, I package the same variety of pastries for my own daughter who's a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin. #tradition #keepingourculturealive #immigrantheritage
