Ros-Lehtinen: U.S. Born Cuba Spy Jeopardized National Security Yet Rewarded By Being Reunited with Family in Cuba

U.S. Born Convicted Spy for Cuba Jeopardized U.S. National Security Yet Is Rewarded By Being Reunited with Family in Cuba

“Gonzalez to stay in luxury in Cuba while Alan Gross continues to languish in a Castro gulag”

(WASHINGTON) –U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, made the following statement regarding convicted spy Rene Gonzalez remaining in Cuba. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

“Gonzalez is now with his family but it’s tragic that Alan Gross remains in a Cuban gulag. Gonzalez is now beyond the supervision of the U.S. judicial system and is free to do as he wishes, living as a perceived hero in Cuba. This may set a dangerous precedent because we will not be able to track his movements. Post prison, Gonzalez enjoyed life as a tourist by visiting museums and monuments in DC but now he will be hailed as a conquering hero in Cuba. The Castro regime must be happy today with his return.

“Recently, we learned that Joanne Chesimard was named Most Wanted Terrorist by the FBI and Marta Rita Velazquez was indicted in the Ana Belen Montes infiltration scheme at the highest level of the U.S. government aimed at undermining our national security. Yet, Gonzalez is allowed to stay with his family and his espionage handlers in Cuba.

“This decision is a dangerous mistake that may jeopardize our national security. I sincerely hope that there is no quid pro quo being discussed regarding the five convicted Cuban spies and the Alan Gross case.”
