Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) blasted President Joe Biden for his "appeasement" of Latin-American tyrants and dictators during a speech with human rights activists celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.
During a rally on Thursday, Scott and other Republicans, including Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Cuban-American Representative María Elvira Salazar (R-FL), called on the White House to take much-needed action.
Senator Rubio said during the rally, "The Biden Administration's policy of appeasement with far-left tyrants and would-be tyrants in Latin America emboldens their grip on power, encourages drug trafficking in our region, and promotes illegal mass migration across our unsecured border."
The President's handling of the southern border has been nothing short of disastrous and his handling of the geopolitical region hasn't been much better.
Senator Rubio continued saying, "The United States, and democracies in our region, are less safe because of this administration's desire to turn a blind eye to the needs of our hemisphere. We need real leadership and real solutions, not left-leaning policies from Marxist apologists."
It seems unlikely that the Biden administration will heed the warnings presented to them. Barring some change of heart, South America will continue to suffer and authoritarian dictators will flourish.
