Castor calls for investigation of 9/11 Sarasota connection


Tampa Congresswoman Kathy Castor Monday called on the House Intelligence Committee to investigate why the FBI did not disclose to Congress information it learned about a Saudi couple living in southwest Florida with ties to the 9/11 hijackers. The Saudis came to the FBI’s attention after neighbors reported they’d suddenly fled their home near Sarasota two weeks before the 2001 terrorist attacks. “One of the great criticisms of the pre-9/11 intelligence operations,” Castor wrote in her letter to the committee’s two senior members, “was the lack of ...

U.S. Rep. Castor's Statement on the Executive Order on Refugees
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor released the following statement on the executive order on refugees:  “President Trump’s executive order targeting and banning legal permanent residents and refugees from war-torn areas is illegal, immoral and un-American.  It has made us less safe.  If the President wants to empower jihadists, this is the way to do it. I am in contact with local refugee assistance agencies to monitor circumstances of families who may have been in transit.  I will remain vigilant and do everything possible to ensure America continues to provide safe haven to victims of torture and persecution as our country has done since its founding. It is outrageous that President Trump has created a religious test and banned well-vetted victims of the Syrian civil war.  America's current vetting process is the most stringent in the world.  Banning Muslims, Iraqis and others who have assisted the U.S. military will empower our terrorist foes.

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor released the following statement today on the announcement that the Obama Administration is ending “Wet Foot/Dry Foot” “The end of the “wet foot/dry foot” policy should be followed by congressional action to lift the outdated economic embargo and improve economic conditions for everyday Cubans.  This is an important step in normalizing our relationship and America must do everything to lift small business entrepreneurs and create opportunities on both sides of the Florida Straits.  We must continue to leave the Cold War policies behind and build new bridges for jobs and economic opportunities for both nations.   I have witnessed how the “wet foot, dry foot” policy created an uneven playing field for immigrants from other Caribbean nations who are also seeking the opportunity to pursue the American dream.    I have also seen Cubans who try to come here for short term visits to see family members negatively affec
