Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) slammed the Biden administration for asking the United Nations to investigate “systemic racism” in American policing. Instead, he told Secretary of State Antony Blinken to “ask them to go to Cuba.” As The Daily Wire reported on Wednesday, Blinken announced the Biden administration’s intention to grant United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet a “formal, standing invitation” to scrutinize “systemic racism against Africans and people of African descent in the context of law enforcement.” Bachelet works alongside the United Nations Human Rights Council — a body that includes Cuba, China, Venezuela, and other nations with authoritarian regimes. Rubio — who is of Cuban descent — recognized the inconsistency of the White House’s move. Over the weekend, Cubans began protesting against the lack of civil liberties and impoverished conditions caused by the island’s communist regime. As progressive lawmakers remained silent, conservatives — especially those with Cuban relatives — pushed the Biden administration to support the protests.
