Talk about strange political bedfellows. Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus is invoking Democratic Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson in his call to revoke the visas of Mariela Castro et al.
Doubt he'll get a response.
Background story is here. Press release follows:
WASHINGTON - Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement calling on President Obama to revoke the visas that were recently granted to Cuban officials:
"President Obama should listen to his Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Senator Bill Nelson of Florida. He should change course and revoke the visas granted to Cuban officials. America should not be in the business of welcoming leaders of the oppressive Castro regime to our country," said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
"Democrats and Republicans disagree on many things, so when we come together on an issue, President Obama should take notice. As Senator Nelson said, granting visas to the Castro regime simply 'makes no sense.'
"At a time when an American sits in Cuban jail for helping the Jewish community gain access to the Internet, we should not be rolling out the red carpet for Communists with an atrocious human rights record. America must stand for freedom and with those fighting for it."
