Commissioner Esteban L. Bovo Jr. will introduce a resolution supporting Title III & Title IV of the Helms-Burton Act


MIAMI – Miami-Dade County Commissioner Esteban L. Bovo Jr. will be introducing a resolution in support of the Trump Administration’s efforts to implement Title III and Title IV of the Helms-Burton Act on Tuesday, May 21 at 9:30 a.m. in the County Commission Chamber, Stephen P. Clark Center, 111 NW First Street Miami, Florida 33128.

Title III of the Helms-Burton Act creates a private cause of action and authorizes United States citizens to sue entities or individuals who are “trafficking” in private properties that were wrongfully confiscated by the Cuban government following Communist dictator Fidel Castro's revolution in 1959.

Title IV of the Helms-Burton Act provides for the denial of entry into the United States by any foreign national who has trafficked in confiscated property.

Families who benefit from the implementation of the Helms-Burton provision will be attending in support of the resolution as well as the Administration’s imposition of new restrictions and sanctions against Cuba and its tyrannical regime.

Commissioner Bovo wholeheartedly supports all efforts to bring about democratic reform in Cuba and applauds the Trump Administration for affording Cuban Americans and others who rightfully owned property in Cuba an opportunity at justice through Title III of the Helms-Burton Act.
