Diaz-Balart Responds to Reports of Possible ‘Tourist’ Travel by American Celebrities in Cuba

Diaz-Balart Responds to Reports of Possible ‘Tourist’ Travel by American Celebrities in Cuba

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement in response to the recent trip taken by two U.S. celebrities to Cuba.

"The numerous reports that such high-profile American celebrities might be engaged in tourist activities in Cuba are concerning.  The Castro regime is one of the most oppressive and brutal dictatorships in the world.  I am further disappointed that these celebrities have not arranged to meet with members of Cuba's brave pro-freedom opposition or its independent musicians.  I hope that OFAC can provide answers as to how such a boon to the Castro regime's propaganda campaign complies with U.S. law."

Diaz-Balart and Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) requested further information from the Office of Foreign Assets Control to assess whether the trip by Beyoncé Knowles-Carter (Beyoncé) and Shawn Carter (Jay-Z) complied with U.S. law.

    Michelle Obama has probably peed herself from laughing so hard. "Oh, sure thing, congressman, we'll ask Senator Kerry to look into it [snickering] or, if he's not sure what to make of it, we can always ask Eric Holder [hysterical cackling]"
