Raul Castro’s resignation from power does not mean that communism has ended in Cuba. Neither does it mean that they will stop influencing the politic in the countries like Nicaragua and Venezuela. Additionally, the Cuban dictatorship is preparing a fake transition into a democracy to deceive the exiled Cuban community.
As a Cuban who was a victim of communism, I will commit to denounce and seek sanctions against any dictatorship. The Cuban, Venezuelan, and Nicaraguan governments are just that, dictatorships. Other countries, such as Argentina, Peru, and Honduras, have already fallen under the grip of socialist movements. Since 1959 all the ills of the Americas have originated in Cuba, and they have expanded to the Americas. My office will maintain a solid commitment to the final and absolute freedom of Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.
The so-called Cultural Exchange is disadvantageous to our local artists. Moreover, it is immoral to the Cuban people who lived under a dictatorship for more than sixty (60) years. The cultural exchange facilitates the flow of foreign currency into the Cuban coffers, which they use to repress the people. It also helps the infiltration of Cuban agents in our country while enriching the Cuban Government’s repressive machinery. Therefore, I will work tirelessly to eliminate the evil Cultural Exchange.
CONDITIONAL ULTIMATUM (TEMPORARY AMNESTY) TO THE CUBAN COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP:
Cuba continues to engage in the exportation of Communism in this hemisphere and meddling with the U.S. electoral system. Consequently, I will work on getting an official U.S. proclamation declaring Cuba as a threat to our national security. Upon receiving it, I will seek to extend a conditional and temporary amnesty to the Cuban dictators. The proposal will ask for them to leave the island of Cuba peacefully within a reasonable timeframe.
However, this temporary offer will include only the forgiveness of their life while they leave the island. But, it will not include the forgiveness of crimes against humanity. Additionally, if the dictators, or their relatives, return to the island, they will have to face justice. They will pay for the crime of illegal entry and any pending crime against humanity. If the conditioned proposal is not accepted, then I will seek to obtain more extreme measures.
CUBAN COMMUNISM AS A THREAT TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY:
It is no secret to anyone that the Cuban dictatorship promotes communism and terrorist activities throughout the Americas region. Moreover, The recent immigration flows in the last few years were a consequence of the influence of Cuba in Venezuela and Nicaragua. Additionally, the Cuban government promotes, maneuvers, and supports the exodus of Cubans through third countries. Cuba found channels to continue the illegal migration of Cubans through Mexico and other countries in the region. Therefore, we must protect our national security by stopping the entrance of Cuban spies through U.S. borders.
Moreover, Cuba has flooded our country with its agents of influence who they inserted into our society. Those agents move public opinion and influence the selection of Candidates to many local and national public offices. Therefore, the Cuban regime represents a threat to the stability of the region, the U.S. electoral integrity, and U.S. national security.
REMITTANCE AND TRAVEL TO CUBA:
We must impose additional sanctions on the Cuban dictatorship. Those sanctions will not affect the right of each Cuban abroad to provide for their families and visit them. Nevertheless, visits must be those considered normal but not abusive. Therefore, I will promote a governmental policy towards family trips to the island. Those trips will have limits of one per year, as a right, and two additional trips due to family emergencies. Emergency trips will be available through the International Red Cross. Additionally, remittances will be adjusted according to the real needs of the relatives on the island. This will avoid excessive capital support to the Cuban dictatorship from exiled Cubans.
The returnees go back to Cuba, and they keep a standard of living that is not available to the Cuban people. Many of them obtain migratory benefits available only to those fleeing from a communist dictatorship such as Cuba. Moreover, they retain Social Security benefits, and they keep traveling to and from the U.S. to do cash-generating business.
The Cuban People struggle to survive under a regime that represses and imposes communism on their people. Additionally, the Cuban people suffer absolute misery and repression while the government allows returnees privileges not available to all Cubans. Therefore, the returnees benefit from the agony and suffering of the Cuban people. Consequently, I will promote the creation of legislation or regulation to prohibit the readmission of those repatriated.
POLITICAL ASYLUM, MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL PAROLE PROGRAM, FAMILY REUNIFICATION, VISAS:
I will support a parole program for Venezuelans, Nicaraguans, Cubans, Argentineans, or any other victims of Communism. Moreover, I will fight to reinstate the Cuban Medical Professional Parole Program terminated by the Obama administration in 2017.
Our current congressperson dedicates time and resources to mislead Cubanas about her interest in resolving the Family Reunification problem. On the other hand, I made a firm commitment to work on streamlining the Cuban Family Reunification Parole Program since 2019. Additionally, I will try to terminate the 20,000 visas program resulting from the Clinton/Castro negotiations of 1995. Those visas only facilitate the Cuban government to infiltrate their intelligence personnel into our city. Therefore, we will facilitate visa access only to those political refugees who demonstrate to be engaged in political activities.
INTERNET ACCESS AND TV/RADIO MARTÍ BROADCAST:
New times require new strategies. It is time for Radio and Tv Marti to transmit their signal to the island in a more effective manner. Radio and TV Marti can become a great tool to combat Communism in Cuba. After more than thirty-five (35) since the creation of Radio and TV Marti, Cuba remains one of the world’s most repressive environments. Consequently, I will promote the use of new methods to get free Internet to Cuba and improve the broadcast of Radio/TV Marti programming for every Cuban. The Cuban people deserve free access to information.
