Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. ­­–– Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart issued the following statement after the Administration’s announcement to suspend all public charter flights to all Cuban cities, with the exception of Havana.

“Once again, the Trump Administration has announced an important measure to cut off U.S. dollars to the Cuban dictatorship by ending charter flights through all Cuban cities except Havana. The administration knows that the regime profits handsomely from travel and tourism dollars, using them to oppress the Cuban people such as imprisoned activist Jose Daniel Ferrer, and to assist the Maduro regime in oppressing the Venezuelan people as well. I commend the administration’s concerted, multiagency efforts to cut off revenue to the Cuban people’s oppressors.”
