Palm Coast, FL – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06), Chairman of the National Security Subcommittee and a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement regarding ongoing reports that U.S. diplomats stationed in Cuba have been physically injured by an unknown device:

“The Castro regime has continued to oppress its own people and to support the Maduro dictatorship in Venezuela; now, two dozen American diplomats have been physically injured, some permanently, during their service in Havana. President Trump should act to protect American personnel and hold Cuba accountable for its misconduct, including but not limited to closing our embassy in Havana and expelling Cuban diplomats in the U.S.”
