Diaz-Balart and Ros-Lehtinen Urge Mexico Not to Forcibly Return Fleeing Cubans

WASHINGTON— Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) sent a letter to Mexican Ambassador to the United States Eduardo Medina Mora Icaza, urging the government of Mexico not to repatriate 13 Cuban nationals who were intercepted at sea while fleeing the Castros’ repression.

“Cubans forcibly repatriated to the island often face harsh punitive measures. It is imperative that Cubans who are found fleeing from their island prison are not made to return to the oppression that they risk their lives to escape. I urge the Mexican government to work with us to ensure that these individuals seeking freedom are not forced to face the inevitable repression they will endure if returned to the Castro regime,” said Diaz-Balart.
