Rubio: Shunning Dissidents From Embassy Opening A New Low For Obama Administration

From the Office of Senator Marco Rubio:


For Immediate Release
Wednesday, August 12, 2015


Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Transnational Crime, Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, and Global Women’s Issues, issued the following statement regarding reports that the Obama Administration doesn’t plan to invite Cuban dissidents to Secretary of State John Kerry’s flag-raising at the U.S. Embassy in Havana on Friday:

“This is a new low for President Obama and a slap in the face by this administration to Cuba’s courageous democracy activists. Cuban dissidents are the legitimate representatives of the Cuban people and it is they who deserve America’s red carpet treatment, not Castro regime officials. What a pathetic policy President Obama has embarked on that shuns Cuban dissidents like this, yet has welcomed Castro regime officials to the White House.”

  1. The incident with Paya’s daughter at the opening of the Cuban embassy in DC was obviously a bad sign, but certainly a clear one. The “normalization” deal is NOT about human rights, freedom or justice, which means dissidents are beside the point and will NOT be allowed to get in the way of what Obama is after. It doesn’t matter how bad it looks as long as it flies, and by and large it will. The same applies to all sorts of shit Obama’s pulled that involves things of far more relevance and interest to Americans than Cuba. Rubio will be ignored.

  2. “The Obama Administration has completely lost its moral compass.”
    The Obama administration has a moral compass?
