OCASIO-CORTEZ: "One of the things we want to make sure that we communicate is our solidarity with the Cuban people. And what’s extraordinarily important for us to communicate as well is the actions and U.S. contributions to the suffering of Cubans on the island as well. And that is directly related to the embargo, the U.S. embargo. Like other U.S. policies, particularly other U.S. policies targeting Latin Americans and Latinos, the cruelty is the point. And I outright reject the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo."
