Shocking! El Jeral (Miami Herald) actually publishes letter from former director of the Center for a Free Cuba

El Jeral rarely allows the voice of the majority of the Cuban exile community to be heard.

Here is one such rare instance.

The letter concerns the inevitable return to Obama’s Cuba policy when and if Jar Jar Biden and Komrade Harris win Tuesday’s election.

From El Jeral

Recent statements by Vice Presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris, about re-instituting President Obama’s Cuba policies, should be of concern in South Florida and on Capitol Hill. Among those policies were agreements of cooperation and sharing of information with Cuba’s Ministry of Justice and intelligence agencies.

In a White House statement, released October 14, 2016, the Director of National Intelligence was instructed “to work… to find opportunities of engagement [with Cuba]… through which we could exchange information…”

The Department of Justice also was ordered to expand law enforcement cooperation, “increase information sharing and share best practices [sic] with Cuban counterparts.”

After Cuban immigration officials visited Miami, the Obama administration began legal action to repatriate a prominent Cuban exile — a Castro foe — who had lived in the United States for more than half a century.

Though the case did not proceed, it could be revived, and the threat of deportation of other Cuban exiles could be used to silence critics of the regime in the United States. This is not far-fetched.

Raül Castro obtained many concessions from Obama, including the pardoning of a Cuban spy serving a life sentence for his role in the murder of American citizens in the Florida Straits.

This is not the time to strengthen the hand of Cuba’s tyrannical government.
