Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Michael McCaul (TX-10) – Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee and a senior member of the Foreign Affairs Committee – released the below statement following the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the former administration’s Cuba policy.

Chairman McCaul: “I applaud President Trump’s decision to rescind former President Obama’s misguided policy of appeasement towards the Castro regime. This policy did nothing to advance the economic and human rights condition of the Cuban people, who have long suffered under the regime’s oppressive, dictatorial rule. While there may be room for future cooperation between our countries, we cannot and should not diminish the plight of those in Cuba by rewarding despotism.”
