The HD 116 candidate calls out Daniel Perez for turning a blind eye to Cuban oppression.
Jose Mallea today made the following statement regarding the changes in U.S. policy toward Cuba announced by President Trump:
“President Trump has done the right thing today by beginning to roll back the anti-freedom Obama administration policies toward Cuba. As it has sadly been for decades, Cuba’s government remains a repressive, Communist, military regime.
“It is disappointing that so many Americans, including Daniel Perez, who benefit from the freedoms we enjoy in our beloved country, look the other way when it comes to our neighbors in Cuba. While Cubans continue to struggle economically and many suffer under serious human rights abuses, we must enact policies that will help reform the Castro government, not reward it.
“Any U.S. policy that normalizes Cuban oppression has to go, and I stand with President Trump in this good and important fight.”
