Keep an eye on Hudson County, NJ for signs of whether a military intervention could actually materialize. It's unlikely at the moment, but there's serious pro-intervention mobilization happening in Hudson County, home to a large Cuban population that's more heavily Dem than Miami

Stack's rabid pro-intervention advocacy is significant because he's the mayor of Union City, which is the political homebase of Bob Menendez -- himself a previous mayor of Union City. Menendez spokesperson told me he's not supporting intervention right now, but situation is fluid

Looks like the Hialeah, FL Police Department just created a Twitter account for the sole purpose of advertising its police-sponsored marches related to the Cuba situation. Always interesting to note which "protests" receive explicit state backing (happened with "BLM" last year)

Here's what the Hialeah Police described as the "walk" on Thursday. It would be nice to have a bit more specific criteria for when people are OK shutting down vehicular traffic and when they're not. Seems like these pro-intervention marches receive a lot of special accommodations

Unsurprisingly the GOP mayor of Hialeah, Carlos Hernandez, led the pro-intervention march

And here's a letter to the White House organized by Hernandez, signed by other Miami-area mayors, asking Biden for military intervention
