Graham Statement On State Dept. Pulling U.S. Personnel From Cuba

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today issued this statement regarding the U.S. Department of State’s decision to pull non-emergency personnel assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Havana and all family members from Cuba. This decision is a result of recent attacks on U.S. Embassy staff.

“I was informed this morning about the Trump Administration’s decision to pull certain U.S. Embassy personnel and all family members from Cuba. I support this decision.

“It is completely unacceptable that the Cuban government launched these sonic attacks on personnel from the State Department and other government agencies.

“I appreciate the Trump Administration taking this firm stance. It is clear the Castro dictatorship is not moving toward freedom. It is moving backward.”
