Alexander makes trip to Cuba
“We are a diverse group geographically and in our politics toward Cuba,” DeLauro said. “But we view this as an opportunity to learn, to create dialogue about issues of mutual concern.”
Joining Alexander, R-Quitman, and DeLauro were Democratic Reps. Marion Berry of Arkansas and Bob Etheridge of North Carolina, as well as Jack Kingston, R-Ga. All were making their first trips to the island, except Berry who was in Cuba in 2000.
DeLauro, Berry and Etheridge have all supported legislation to ease U.S. trade restrictions toward Cuba in the past, while Kingston has supported the embargo.
