Quote of the Day: No Tourism Concessions to the Cuban Military

Thursday, January 29, 2015
We should not aspire to help the Castro regime fill the coffers of its military monopolies with the dollars of American tourists while the Cuban people still struggle to make ends meet and are forced to labor under the oppressive conditions dictated by their government. Any further changes to U.S. policy towards Cuba and additional sanctions relief must be conditioned on the Castro regime’s actions.
