Rubio, Braun, Cruz, Cotton Call for Religious Freedoms in Cuba After Parents Jailed for Homeschooling

May 22, 2019 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mike Braun (R-IN), Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Tom Cotton (R-AR) expressed solidarity for the Cuban people in their pursuit of religious freedom, by introducing a resolution condemning the Cuban regime’s practice of jailing parents who attempt to homeschool their children.

In April 2019, a family was sent to prison in Cuba for homeschooling their children, who were enrolled in a Christian distance school in Honduras free from the state indoctrination of Cuba’s regime-controlled education system.

The resolution: 

  • Expresses solidarity with the people of Cuba in their pursuit of religious freedom.
  • Calls on the Government of Cuba to release all political prisoners, including those who have been imprisoned for homeschooling their children.
  • Calls on the Organization of American States Inter-American Commission on Human Rights to grant the Precautionary Measures requested on April 25, 2019.
  • Calls on the Government of Cuba to recognize the right of parents to teach their own children free from state communist indoctrination.
  • Calls for the continued implementation of the Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity Act of 1996.
