Crist Statement on White House Cuba Policy Announcement

U.S. Representative Charlie Crist (D–St. Petersburg) issued the following statement following the Biden Administration’s announcement of new policies to help the Cuban people and support our national security.

“The Cuban communist regime continues to violently oppress peaceful protestors crying out for freedom and liberty, all while more and more Cubans attempt the dangerous journey to the United States to escape,” said Rep. Crist. “I am encouraged by the Biden Administration’s announcement today, and it is my hope that this will improve the quality of life for everyday Cubans on the island, while giving Cuban-Americans the freedom to visit, support, and reunite with their families. I look forward to continuing to engage the Administration, along with Cuban community leaders, to make sure that entrepreneurship dollars go to mamás y papás and not to companies run by the military establishment. If the Cuban people have alternatives to the communist regime for internet access and financial services, this could be a game changer for freedom and democracy in Cuba. ¡Patria y vida! ¡Cuba será libre!
