Quote of the Day: Cuba Should be Penalized for Gross' Continued Imprisonment

Tuesday, December 2, 2014
The commemoration of yet another shameful anniversary of the imprisonment of Alan Gross is once again disappointing and unacceptable. Mr. Gross’s mental and physical health have progressively deteriorated while imprisoned under the brutal regime that has no regard for the respect of human rights. The Obama Administration must work expediently to secure the unconditional release of Mr. Gross and penalize the regime by tightening sanctions, as we continue to press for the release of Mr. Gross, and that of 11 million Cubans who are also subjected to the tyranny of the Castro regime.
