Gov. Ron DeSantis and Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez were joined by U.S. Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar, R-FL, and FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr for a press conference Thursday afternoon in Miami.

The press conference came a day after DeSantis sent a letter to President Joe Biden requesting federal assistance to “provide Internet access to the people of Cuba standing up against communist oppression and demanding a voice after decades of suffering under the yoke of a cruel dictatorship.”

Carr later tweeted expressing his support for DeSantis’ efforts to end Cuba’s internet blockade.

“America is the home of innovation. No one does it better than us. We have Bezos. We have Google. We have Microsoft. We have Apple. We work best when the private joins the public sector. Now it’s up to the president to unlock this capability. The administration can do this now and must do this now,” Salazar said Thursday.
