Senator Rubio Comments On Cuban Regime’s Sentencing Of Alan Gross

Mar 14, 2011 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio today commented following the Castro regime’s conviction and sentencing of American contractor Alan Gross to a 15-year sentence:

“The Cuban regime’s 15-year prison sentence for Alan Gross is a deplorable attack on freedom.

“Earlier this week, the Obama Administration approved new expanded travel to Cuba, a state sponsor of terrorism. With Mr. Gross’ sentencing, the Castro regime has effectively demonstrated the hopeless and dangerous naiveté of this Administration’s policy toward the regime.

“Mr. Gross is simply a humanitarian who was seeking to help the Jewish community in Cuba access the internet, and he deserves to be freed and reunited with his family at once. I strongly urge President Obama and Secretary Clinton to immediately halt the issuance of new Cuba travel licenses approved this week.”
