As a U.S. citizen rots in a Cuban prison, Castro's agents get visas to USA

 On August 4, 2011 the Obama Administration announced a ban on visas for people who the State Department finds have been involved in human rights violations, but it now appears that Cuban state security agents and their willing accomplices are being exempted from this presidential directive.

The pictures in the video above were sent by human rights activist Yoan David González Milanes, of the November 30 Democratic Party and the National Front for Civic Resistance OZT, from Santa Cruz del Sur, Camaguey, where you can see the alleged repressor and state security agent Adalberto Sánchez Sorit (who is scheduled to travel to the U.S.) participating in an act of repudiation against activists at their home. Additionally, you can see the repressor's sister Hilda Sánchez Sorit and his wife Mayra Esquivel, also participating in the repudiation act. All three are known repressors of nonviolent activists in the Cuban province.

It appears that the presidential directive has not been vigorously enforced because it would as Human Rights Watch observed "strengthen the US government’s commitment and capacity to prevent mass atrocities and other grave human rights violations around the world" and Miami would not be filled the Castro regime's henchmen. The directive signed by President Obama is clear. Now the question remains when will it be vigorously enforced or this another demonstration of how the Administration has extended a hand to the Castro regime?

This at a time when human rights in Cuba are deteriorating and Alan Gross, a United States citizen, is currently unjustly imprisoned in a Cuban prison and has been there for more than three years.
