Castro’s Daughter Endorses Obama

Via Heritage:

Mariela Castro Espin, daughter of Cuban dictator Raul Castro and director of the Cuban National Center for Sex Education (CENESEX), used a visit to the U.S. to criticize American policy and endorse President Obama.

Last week, Castro received a U.S. visa for the first time in 10 years to attend the Latin American Studies Association Conference in San Francisco. This at a time when Cubans who speak up against the misery, hopelessness, and repression on the island are repeatedly jailed, harassed…


Castro’s presence in U.S. was designed to demonstrate a permissive and, sadly, unreciprocated openness by the Obama Administration to a prominent figure in the Castro regime. Yet the action opened a spigot for blatant attacks by Castro against the integrity of the U.S. political and judicial system. Moreover, it came as Castro’s father continues to unjustly imprison an American hostage, contractor Alan Gross, serving 15 years for a fabricated charge of espionage.
