Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) meets with Cuban dissident leader and human rights activist Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet

From the offices of U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL):

“Today I had the honor of meeting with human rights activist and recipient of the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom, Dr. Óscar Elías Biscet. Dr. Biscet’s actions and words continue to inspire those living in Cuba under the repressive Castro regime, and others around the world who are beaten and bloodied for expressing their ideas, living out their faith, or disagreeing with their government’s leaders. Dr. Biscet will be the first to tell you that nothing has changed in Cuba – just this year he was arrested and detained for his affiliation with an organization that supports democratic policies in Cuba and the Americas. I commend Dr. Biscet for standing strong against a dictatorship that continues to oppress its own people, and I look forward to working with him in the days ahead to bring hope and freedom to the people of Cuba.”
