The Aug. 11 Herald carries a thoughtful message by Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart, along with former Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart. Their message was inspired by their encounter with the highly regarded Cuban dissident Jorge Luis García Pérez (Antunez) and his wife, Yris Tamara Pérez Aguilera, while visiting Miami.
These three illustrious political personalities have always espoused hard-line policies towards Cuba which, if fully in place, call for a position of isolation. The opportunity of them meeting with Antunez and having our community exposed to his views would have been forgone if such policies were followed.
This should be food for thought for our policy makers.
