Help Cuban Migrants Detained in Panama, Ros-Lehtinen Says

(WASHINGTON) - U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, made the following statement on reports that nineteen Cuban migrants are being detained at Playa Blanca in La Miel, Panama:

“According to reports, nineteen Cuban women, men and children arrived in Panama earlier this month, and are currently being detained in La Miel. My office has been notified that several of the Cuban migrants are in poor health and are in need of urgent medical attention.

“I have contacted the United Nations Secretary General, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Government of Panama to request their assistance in addressing potential humanitarian issues and in determining their status.

“These Cubans are fleeing from the oppressive Cuban tyranny.  I call on the government of Panama, the UN, the UNHCR, and other international organizations to evaluate the situation and offer appropriate assistance.”
