Cuban Solidarity Resolution Garners No Dem Support

House Republicans officially voice their support for Cuban protestors calling for freedom.

On Tuesday, Florida Republican Representative Mario Diaz-Balart introduced a resolution to explicitly support the Cuban people and their demand for freedom from “the brutal oppression of the Communist dictatorship in Cuba.”

In introducing his resolution, Diaz-Balart notes that “for 62 years, the Cuban people have struggled for freedom and human rights under a brutal, repressive dictatorship.” The resolution:

  • Calls for the release of all political prisoners and for the end of acts of repression, arbitrary imprisonments, torture, and other human rights abuses against the Cuban people;

  • Honors the courageous Cuban people for daring to stand up to the Cuban regime and demanding respect for fundamental freedoms, such as freedom of expression and assembly;

  • Recognizes the brave pro-democracy and human rights activists, including independent journalists, artists, labor leaders, and religious leaders, who have been persecuted throughout decades of Communist tyranny;

  • Urges other democracies, regional and multilateral organizations to affirm that violence against the unarmed people of Cuba will not be tolerated and that human rights abusers will be held accountable for their crimes; 

  • Expresses solidarity with the long-suffering Cuban people in their demands for a genuine democratic transition; and

  • Calls on the international community to stand with those struggling for freedom in Cuba by condemning repression and expressing unequivocal support for their rights to self-governance, human rights, and basic liberties.

Diaz-Balart, who is of Cuban descent, has several cosponsors of the resolution in the House, including Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL), Carlos Gimenez (R-FL), Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY), Greg Steube (R-FL), Byron Donalds (R-FL), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), and Liz Cheney (R-WY). Tellingly, however, not a single Democrat has signed on to the resolution — a testament to just how far Democrats have drifted down the socialism hole.
