Miami Congressman Vows to Investigate TSA Over Airport Visit by Cuban Officials


MIAMI—During a press conference to denounce the recent TSA-sponsored visit by Cuban officials to the Miami International Airport (MIA), Rep. Carlos Gimenez (R) warned that if President Joe Biden wins reelection, the administration would push to normalize relations with the Cuban regime much like former President Barack Obama did during his second term in office.

When asked if he believed the sanction visit by those Cuban officials was a “continuation of the Obama agenda with Cuba” of trying to normalize relations with the regime, Rep. Gimenez stated,” I believe that they will wait until after the election, if they get reelection and they’ll have an opening with Cuba just like the Obama administration.

Rep. Gimenez said that contrary to what a few people believe, “There is no free enterprise system in Cuba,” calling the belief that Cuba is interested in such an economic system “A falsehood.”

“There may be people who say they're part of the free enterprise system, but they're all tied to the regime, and anytime you do that you're helping the regime

you're helping to maintain the regime that's been oppressing the people for 60 years,” added Gimenez. “It's time that we start you know acting like the beacon of freedom and democracy that this nation should be in this hemisphere.”

Gimenez also said he would investigate the visit in his TSA subcommittee in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart asserted that under President Donald Trump's second term in office, these kinds of visits “would cease immediately under a Trump administration.”
