Further Easing of Restrictions Before Pres. Obama’s Visit to Cuba Only Helps the Castro Regime, Says Ros-Lehtinen

“U.S. policy must focus less on easing our regulations and more on putting pressure on the Castro brothers to unclench its fists which oppress the Cuban people.”

(Washington, DC) – U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa, made the following statement today regarding the further easing of regulations towards the Castro communist regime. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

“Just in the past few days in Cuba, there has been increased repression on the island and more arrests are being made in anticipation of the President’s misguided visit. Yet, the White House continues to grasp at regulatory straws to see what else it can concede in advance of the President’s trip to Cuba to promote more funds going in the pockets of the regime. U.S. policy must focus less on easing our regulations and more on putting pressure on the Castro brothers to unclench its fists which oppress the Cuban people.”
