The Cuban Border Guard and Ministry of Foreign Affairs are high-level entities in a dictatorship classified as a state sponsor of terrorism. Inviting those agents to tour a sensitive U.S. site is, simply put, unconscionable….
That’s why I demanded President Biden cancel the planned visit as soon as I was notified of it…. Floridians rely on maritime and port security to protect us from both the geopolitical threat posed by Cuba…and the illegal importation of drugs, including deadly fentanyl.
