Cuban-Americans in House Unanimously Support Cuban Immigrant Work Opportunity Act
“I commend the leadership of my fellow Cuban-American House Members, Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-27), Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), Albio Sires (NJ-08), and Alex Mooney (WV-02) for their support of the Cuban Immigrant Work Opportunity Act. Together, we can protect those fleeing the Castro dictatorship while ensuring that America’s generosity is not being exploited and abused. I am also pleased to learn that Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is expected to file companion legislation in the Senate next week. I thank Senator Rubio and my colleagues in the House for their steadfast commitment to this issue and their tireless efforts to bring democracy and justice to Cuba. I appreciate all of the bipartisan support this legislation has received so far and will work towards advancing the Cuban Immigrant Work Opportunity Act through Congress.”
Additional co-sponsors of the Cuban Immigrant Work Opportunity Act as of January 8, 2016, include Ryan Costello (PA-06), Henry Cuellar (TX-28), Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02), Ted Deutch (FL-21), Ron DeSantis (FL-06), and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23).
