Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement in response to an internal email that was sent within the Environmental Protection Agency that featured an image of Che Guevara:
"It is outrageous that as we begin the month-long celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Environmental Protection Agency would send a staff wide e-mail that included a picture of Che Guevara. Che was a cold-blooded murderer who killed so many innocent victims. This Administration has granted visas to Mariela Castro and other top Cuban regime officials, offered the Castro brothers unilateral concessions, and now sends an email with a image of an anti-American mass murderer. This is not only offensive to victims and their families, but also to anyone who believes in freedom. This email does not celebrate Hispanic heritage, but rather insults everything that the Hispanic community stands for."
