2018 Cuba visit
February 2018 Cuban President Raul Castro received a bicameral delegation of US lawmakers.
"During the meeting they discussed matters of interest to both countries," the Cuban government said in a statement.
The delegation, led by Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont,comprised of Senators Ron Wyden of Oregon and Michigan's Gary Peters, along with representatives Kathy Castor of Florida, Jim McGovern of Massachusetts and Susan Davis of California.
Leahy has been one of the most active politicians inside the Capitol in advocating the improvement of US-Cuba relations, which defrosted somewhat in 2014 under Barack Obama after half a century of tension.
Led by Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, the U.S. legislators met with Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, the newly appointed director for United States in the Cuban Foreign Ministry.
The lawmakers are reportedly on a "fact-finding trip" concerning changes in the Cuba policy introduced by the Trump administration following alleged health incidents involving US diplomats in Havana.
"A pleasure to welcome U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy and the congressional delegation (…) Enjoyed a constructive and candid dialogue," Fernandez de Cossio posted on his Twitter account. The Cuban diplomat is said to have told the visitors during the meeting that no evidence has been found by either Cuba or the US regarding the cause of those incidents.
Green New Deal
“I definitely think we’re making a difference,” said Masada Disenhouse, executive director of SanDiego350, who help organize numerous protests outside of Davis’ San Diego office. “There’s no question that Representative Davis is cosponsoring the Green New Deal as a direct result of our campaign.”
Davis said that pressure by activists was not a factor in her decision.
“As my constituents know, I always take a deliberative and thoughtful approach to legislation,” she said in an email. “It was important to me to study the bill and consult with experts and colleagues, and listen to my constituents carefully before signing onto such a broad proposal.”
The congresswoman posted the news on Twitter after she cosponsored the resolution, which calls on the federal government to draft legislation aimed at wiping out greenhouse emissions by 2030 while creating jobs in the renewable energy and other sectors.
