Press Release

“I was honored to join President Obama and several of my congressional colleagues for this historic visit to Cuba. After 57 years of mutual distrust and an ever-widening economic and cultural divide between Cuba and the United States, the remarkable diplomatic progress made by the President, Secretary Kerry, and other American officials over the past several months gives our two countries the chance of a new beginning. As President Obama made clear in his address today, the Cuban government must still be held to account for its gross human rights and political abuses, and we have a long way to go before relations are normalized. But I strongly believe that diplomatic engagement and inclusion in the international community will greatly benefit the Cuban people, who have suffered through generations of isolation.”
