Senator Rubio On The Cuban Regime’s Actions In The Case Of U.S. Aid Worker Alan Gross

Feb 7, 2011 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio issued the following statement regarding the news that Cuban prosecutors will seek a 20-year prison sentence for U.S. aid worker Alan Gross:

“I condemn in the strongest possible terms the Cuban regime’s decision to seek a 20 year prison sentence for Alan Gross. Mr. Gross is simply a humanitarian who was seeking to help the Jewish community in Cuba access the internet. Only the most oppressive, totalitarian regime would seek to jail someone for trying to expand access to information.

“I call on the Obama administration to halt the planned implementation of their new Cuba policies that liberalize travel and expand allowable remittances to Cuba. This unilateral gift to the Castro brothers by the Obama administration is totally unwarranted, especially in light of Mr. Gross’s case.

“President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton must readjust their recently announced concessions in light of this disproportionate action against an innocent American citizen.”
