Ileana Ros-Lehtinen breakfasts with UN chief, looks to cut his funding

The Miami Republican who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee tweeted this morning that she was "Starting b'fast mtng with UN chief to discuss much needed reforms + needed transparency."

And now her committee is holding a hearing that questions U.S. contributions to the UN. Ros-Lehtinen has said she'd like to make them voluntary. She's criticized the UN for its stance toward Cuba, among other issues.

"Small investment in UN buys us efforts to keep peace, fight poverty, halt spread of nuclear, deliver aid," Susan Rice, the U.S.'s Ambassador to the UN tweeted before the hearing. "Worth it."

What Ileana should do is offer an amendment to repeal the Cuban Adjustment Act.......one of, if not the most, stupid immigration law ever passed 44 years ago.

It puts Cubans in a "Special Immigration" category. They can land anywhere and be accepted...get $9K in walking around money....and in a year a green card....WHY?
