Obama used his executive action to give valuable benefits to the Communist rulers of Cuba without any quid pro quo whatsoever that might benefit the United States. Cuba refuses to take back its citizens who have been convicted of crimes against Americans. Cuba refused to take back 878 criminals last year and has already rejected nearly 400 criminals this year. Cuba is the biggest offender among the countries that refuse to take back their own citizens who committed crimes in our country, but there are at least a dozen other countries doing the same thing. It is bad enough that those criminals committed vicious crimes against our girls, but it adds insult to injury when we have to spend U.S. taxpayers’ money to support foreign criminals for years in our prisons.
For starters, Congress should cut off all foreign aid and all other favors to countries that refuse to take back their own criminals.
