Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations issued the following statement after President Trump threatened a “full and complete embargo, together with highest-level sanctions” against Cuba.

 “A full and complete embargo along with high-level sanctions against the nation of Cuba would have disastrous economic consequences and plunge the state of our foreign policy into the time of the Cold War. After 60 years of ineffective policy, it was President Obama who began to repair relations and improve the possibility that the United States would finally have a positive relationship with the island just 90 miles south of the United States. An embargo would be a regrettable development that would be judged harshly by history, just like our first one was. I maintain my position that the U.S. should focus on supporting Venezuelan and regional efforts to bring about a peaceful solution to this crisis by providing humanitarian aid to Venezuelan migrants throughout Latin America and resisting military intervention.”
