The failure of Biden’s administration resounds. It resounds with everyone home and abroad. At every turn, he’s made the wrong decision — and his last one is doozy.
Thousands of protesters gathered in front of the White House on Sunday night to demand that the Biden administration do more to support anti-government demonstrators in Cuba.

Some protesters called for military intervention, others said they wanted food and supplies sent directly to the Cuban people instead of to the government. Providing internet access to the island also was an expressed priority.
It’s been reported more demonstrators were expected to arrive by Monday, a national holiday in Cuba and the date Fidel Castro led his first attack against the Batista government in 1953.
A local paper in Miami reported the mood among the demonstrators into early Monday morning was largely festive, with constant chants of “Libertad,” and “Patria y Vida” (“Homeland and Life”).
Rep. María Elvira Salazar of Florida joined the protestors in Washington to show their defiance against Biden’s policies.

Maria Fundora, who leads a Texas-based group called Cuba Libre, said at least 18 buses left from Miami and only three had arrived in Washington by Sunday evening. Caravans from Tampa, Florida, and Texas also were expected.
The Biden administration has announced its support of the protesters and has also leveled sanctions.
The protesters included people who arrived in the U.S. after fleeing the socialist regime.
Pro-democracy protests broke out across Cuba on July 11, when people took to the streets to protest against Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel and the socialist government amid shortages of goods, rising prices, and power cuts.
