Washington, DC-House Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican Michael McCaul (R-TX), Western Hemisphere, Civilian Security, Migration, and International Economic Policy Subcommittee Lead Republican Mark Green (R-TN) and Rep. Maria Salazar (R-FL) joined Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and members of the Leader’s Advisory Team on Cuba for events with Miami’s Cuban exile and human rights community to demand support for Cuban freedom from the Biden Administration.

While in Miami, the Members expressed their support and solidarity with the people of Cuba and called on the Biden Administration to stop appeasing the communist dictatorship. Rep. McCaul told the crowd, “Over 60 years ago, Fidel Castro promised the people of Cuba a utopian society. But it was a lie. It’s time for the Castro regime to end. And as the people of Cuba demand their freedom from the Cuban dictatorship, I am proud to stand with them!”
