As a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Peace Corps, and Global Narcotics, Marco spoke at a hearing Thursday about countering repression and strengthening civil society in Cuba . The committee heard from the State Department as well as several pro-democracy activists and former political prisoners in Cuba, who spoke via video conference and telephone. In his opening remarks, Marco warned the members of the Castro government who commit human rights violations that they will be brought to justice when the regime falls.

Here is an excerpt of Marco’s comments:
 

Rubio: “If you’re involved in beating people, if you’re involved in jailing people in Cuba, if the government is using you whether it’s here in the United States as part of the interest section or in Cuba and abusing human rights, your name is being recorded… and you will be brought before justice.”
