Chamber of Commerce Trip to Cuba Is Just Another Potemkin Village Tour, Says Ros-Lehtinen

Miami, Florida – U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, made the following statement on the upcoming trip to Cuba by leaders of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Said Ros-Lehtinen:

“It’s shameful that a group like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce would choose to visit the island gulag of Cuba where the tyrants owe billions of dollars to the private sector all over the world. It’s pathetic and disappointing that the Chamber is putting financial interests ahead of human rights and democratic values. Under the Castro regime, the Cuban people have no right to private ownership and are continually victims of policies that prohibit free market principles. While the Chamber is being given the Potemkin Village tour by the Castros, it should keep in mind that every dollar given to the regime will only further finance the oppression of the Cuban people.”
