Senator Marco Rubio Comments On Anniversary Of Haiti Earthquake

Jan 26, 2011 | Press Releases

Miami, FL – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio today issued the following
statement regarding the one year anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti:

“On this first anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti, I commend the
efforts of U.S. law enforcement, civilian and military personnel who
have been dealing with this crisis, as well as non-government and
faith-based organizations that have answered the call to provide relief
to the Haitian people. While there is still much work to be done, on
behalf of Florida, I offer my gratitude for their service to our Haitian
neighbors.

“Last year’s earthquake was a tragedy of epic proportions that has been
further aggravated by new challenges to rebuilding efforts, public
health and security. Haiti’s continued devastation is nothing short of a
humanitarian crisis.

“Beyond offering our solidarity and continued prayers for the Haitian
people and those working on rebuilding efforts, I also offer my
assistance as a U.S. senator in providing support, cooperation and
oversight for policies that help build lasting government institutions,
establish the rule of law, encourage a vibrant private sector and
enable a strong civil society to flourish in Haiti.

“In recent weeks, I have spoken to my colleagues about the current state
and future of Haiti. I pledge to work with them on this issue, which I
believe is of vital interest to our state, country and entire
hemisphere.”
