What the Never Trumpers Got Right

Elian Gonzalez, held by Donato Dalrymple, is taken by U.S. federal agents from his Miami relatives April 22, 2000. U.S. federal authorities stormed the Miami house where Cuban shipwreck survivor Elian Gonzalez was sleeping early on a Saturday morning. Dalrymple is one of the two sport fishermen that rescued him at sea. In the Elian case, after a custody battle pitting President Fidel Castro's government against its arch-enemies in the Cuban-American community, the boy's Cuban father finally won his legal battle in U.S. courts and fetched Elian home on June 28.
