Ros-Lehtinen: USAID programs promote democracy in Cuba while Castro regime denies basic human rights

From the offices of U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL):

USAID Programs Seek to Promote Democracy in Cuba While Castro Regime Continues to Deny Cuban People Basic Human Rights, Says Ros-Lehtinen

(WASHINGTON) – U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, made the following statement regarding recent news reports of USAID programs designed to promote democracy in Cuba.

Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

"The fact that USAID is using measures to promote democracy in Cuba is no secret. We must continue to pressure the Castro regime and support the Cuban people, who are oppressed on a daily basis. I wish the press would dedicate more of their time to reporting the rampant human rights abuses in Cuba perpetrated by the Castro regime instead of manipulating the coverage of programs promoting freedom of expression and justice on the island."
