Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement after the State Department announced they would expel 15 Cuban regime officials from the embassy in Washington, D.C.

“I commend the Trump administration for taking a tough stand against the Castro regime by expelling diplomats following reports of sonic attacks against U.S. diplomats in Havana.  Shamefully, the regime in Cuba has a long history of harassing U.S. diplomatic personnel.  This was an appropriate step to protect staff and U.S. national security interests. The policy of the past administration is once again proving to be a failure, and this time, it is at the expense of the health of American citizens.  This shows that the Trump Administration does not tolerate attacks on our diplomats serving overseas.”
