Menendez: Cuba Responded to Biden's 'Unilateral Concessions' by Increasing Repression, Including 'Death Penalty for Free Speech'

On Thursday's broadcast of MSNBC's "Jose Diaz-Balart Reports," Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) criticized the Biden administration for lifting some restrictions on Cuba by saying that the day that the policy changes were announced, the Cuban regime put "sweeping, draconian consequences" for free speech into law and that the Biden administration's move is "a unilateral concession that ultimately was responded to by having a penal code that includes the death penalty for free speech activities."
