Curbelo: Obama's Cuba Regs Undermine Property Rights, Spirit of U.S. Law

Saturday, October 15, 2016
Statement from U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) on the Obama Administrations latest Cuba policy changes:

"I am deeply disappointed that the Obama Administration continues to make concessions that solely benefit the Cuban regime while receiving nothing in return. The new regulations announced today only benefit state-owned business entities that enrich the coffers of the Castro family and their loyalists. I am concerned that these new rules, which facilitate the trafficking of stolen trademarks and property into the United States, undermines the spirit of the Libertad Act. The law’s goals are to choke off resources to the dictatorship and protect the legal rights of American citizens that have had their private properties confiscated by the communist thugs. These actions do not serve the national interests of the United States, nor the aspirations of the Cuban people to be freed of the oppressive chains."
