Death of Fidel Castro

There is no doubt Fidel Castro will go down in history as a repressive dictator who denied the Cuban people of their civil and human rights, and his death leaves many Cuban-American citizens with mixed feelings.

Today, my thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people. Moving forward, we need to continue the work we've started by bringing American ideals of democracy, freedom and prosperity to Cuba through improved diplomatic and economic relations, because it's always a good idea to remain friendly with your neighbors.
