This Week in the Office of Senator Marco Rubio
Check out what we’ve been up to this week:
The State Department expelled Cuban operatives from the U.S. after American diplomats were forced to leave Havana due to attacks. “As American diplomatic personnel continue to come under attack in Havana, I commend the U.S. State Department for expelling a number of Cuban operatives from the U.S. No one should be fooled by the Castro regime’s claim it knows nothing about how these harmful attacks are occurring or who perpetrated them.” Read the rest of my statement commending the State Department’s decision.
Governor Sam Brownback, nominee for Ambassador-at-Large for international religious freedom, and Michele Sison, nominee for U.S. Ambassador to Haiti, stopped by my office.
Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ) and I held a press conference to unveil the 2017 Congressional-Executive Commission on China report. Together we also wrote an op-ed about the violation of human rights in China and why the U.S. should hold them accountable: “America must stand for its own interests, but it is in America’s interests to see the Chinese government uphold human rights norms, respect the rule of law, and adhere to universal standards.” Read the rest of the op-ed.
