I heard on the news this evening that the Cubas' lawyer has filed a complaint against Magda Montiel because the girl told the psychologist that Montiel was filming her dancing with her new "family" and making her say that she wanted to go to Cuba with them.
The poor little girl has been a basket case and broke down and told the psychologist the truth.
Joe Cubas was interviewed yesterday and said that the little girl has been very nervous recently and can't sleep alone. She wants to sleep with her parents and that she's terrified of going back to Cuba.
What do you think is going to happen if she does get sent back... do you think Izquierdo and his wife are going to let Elenita into bed with them?

Now the poor little girl has to endure the company of Magda Montiel-Davis as Elián had to suffer Janet Reno's. These women should be banned from civil society and not allowed within a mile of any child. They really are toxic (and in Reno's case, lethal) to any child. I can understand why she can't sleep: four witches are far too many to people any child's dreams: her mother; the "lady in the black thing:" Montiel-Davis; and her father's common-law wife (how many of those can a man have in Cuba nowadays?).
Whom could the little girl sleep with in Cuba?
She could sleep with a different mistress of her father's every night. Hopefully not with her own mother, who has said that she will follow Elenita back to Cuba. Izquierdo, as you may recall, has said for his part that it is wrong to keep a child from its mother and that in Cuba Elena Pérez will have free access to her.
So, in effect, the future is going to be precisely the past for Elenita: an abusive mother and an indifferent father. The only difference is that she will not have her brother to protect her.

Who will Elenita sleep with? If she's returned to Cuba in about ten years time, she'll be sleeping with anyone, having no future in Cuba, she'll have no choice but to turn to jineterismo, being traumatized as she already is, she'll be looking for love in all the wrong places, her future is a sad one indeed.
Sorry if this sounds cruel, but we all know what the Cuban reality is.

If her life thus far has not been horrific enough there are still worse torments awaiting her in Cuba, including a thorough brainwashing at a state psychiatric hospital, using the methods perfected by Cuban doctors at the Hanoi Hilton. Elián's lasted 3 months from the day of his return to Cuba. This was the period when he was off limits to the press because he "needed time to readjust."
Mental illness is often hereditary. With the biological legacy of her mother she already has one strike against her. Her life thus far is another strike. And her repatriation to Cuba will provide the third and final one.
What they are doing to this child is murder on the installment plan and most payments have already been made.
