Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart Thwarts Lefty Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s Bow To Cuba

  • Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib would have granted unilateral concessions to the Castro regime in Cuba.
  • Florida’s Diaz-Balart drives vote against, 260 to 163.
  • Says: “While Marxist dictatorships have their apologists within the Democrat majority, I am grateful for the support of colleagues on both sides of the aisle who stood with the Cuban people in their struggle for freedom today. Because of their firm, bipartisan support, we were able to defeat an amendment that would have extended credit to the Cuban people’s oppressors.”
