Congressman Rivera expressed his support for the cancellation of the Pablo Milanes concert which is scheduled for later this month at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, a public facility which is owned by the taxpayers of Miami-Dade County. Milanes is a vocal proponent of the Castro regime, which has been designated a sponsor of terrorism by the United States government. The regime simultaneously supports the Cuban performer financially and otherwise.
Congressman Rivera made the following statement about why he supports cancellation of the concert:
"The taxpayers of Miami-Dade County, who are the owners of the American Airlines Arena, should not have their tax dollars and public resources used for events that only serve to further the interests of a terrorist regime like the Castro dictatorship. No terrorist government, terrorist organization, or representative of a terrorist government should have access to taxpayer-subsidized facilities in our community."
