Rep. Nicole Malliotakis criticized Reps. Ilhan Omar and Pramila Jayapal for their undisclosed trip to Cuba, accusing them of being anti-American and communist sympathizers.

She condemned their visit to Cuba, highlighting the country’s human rights issues and low wages, contrasting it with the lawmakers’ advocacy for fair wages in the U.S.

“These are anti-American members of Congress, okay? They are communist sympathizers, and they go to Cuba, which is not only a state sponsor of terrorism, but they side with our adversaries. They are in bed with Iran, North Korea, communist China, Russia. They allow for them to operate spy bases 90 miles from our shores. They have harbored fugitives. They have harbored terrorists. And it’s unconscionable that these members of Congress would go there trying to appease the government of Cuba. And then they go under the guise of wanting to do something about human rights,” Rep. Nicole Malliotakis said.

Malliotakis emphasized that the members of Congress sided with oppressive regimes like Iran and North Korea.

“Do they know that the people in Cuba, including my relatives, earn about $15 a month, $15 a month? So they come here in the United States, they’re preaching about fair wages. Everyone should make a living wage. And then they go and support a government that pays its people $15. And you know why? It’s a farce,” Malliotakis said.

“It’s a farce because every single one of these members voted against the resolution standing with the Cuban people in 2021, when they were on the streets, fighting for their lives, fighting for freedom. The Socialist Squad and Jayapal, they all voted no to stand against the people and with the Cuban regime,” she said.

The trip, led by Omar and Jayapal, aimed to discuss human rights and the U.S.-Cuba relationship but was not disclosed and not reported by Cuban state media.
