Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the expulsion of Cuban diplomats from U.S. soil:

"I encouraged the president to expel Cuban diplomats from U.S. soil, and I'm glad that he did. The Castro regime has shown no respect or concern for the safety of our diplomats, and until the regime brings those responsible for these attacks to justice, every one of those Cuban diplomats should be declared persona non grata. It's time we held the Castro regime responsible for its crimes against both the Cuban and the American people."
