U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, made the following statement regarding migration talks between the United States and the tyrannical Castro regime. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:
"Having another round of migration talks while Alan Gross unjustly sits in Castro's gulag and the people of Cuba remain oppressed is a fool's errand. To think that the Castro regime will abide by any migration accord or agreement is a folly and these migration talks only serve to legitimize the regime while it arrests countless human rights activists on the island. Instead of sitting down with regime emissaries, the Obama administration should stand in solidarity with the Cuban people and stop providing concessions to the Castro regime such as these worthless exercises that do nothing to help the cause for freedom and democracy in Cuba."
