Cuban Americans Rise up against Biden, Shut Down Miami Expressway in Protest
Protesters flood Florida streets demanding support from Democrats for people of Cuba
Cuban Americans have flooded the streets of Miami, Florida, to rise up in protest against Democrat Joe Biden over his lack of support for the people of Cuba.
Hundreds of protesters shut down a major expressway in Miami as Biden and many top Democrats have failed to give adequate support to Cubans who are demanding freedom from Cuba's communist dictatorship.
One protester with a Cuban flag draped over his back told reporters that the people of Cuba "need Biden’s support" to end communism in the island nation.
"We haven’t gotten support from the president," the man said of Democrat Biden.
"So, we are trying to fight, to finish with the communism."
Demonstrators appeared undeterred by the heavy rain as they took to the streets to tell Biden they won't sit back and watch while he allows the communist regime to silence the people of Cuba.
Police turned away many of the protesters when they reached the highway, according to Fox News.
The crowd chanted "SOS Cuba" as a line of cars forced to a standstill honked their horns.
Anti-government protests broke out in Cuba on Sunday as the communist island nation faces an economic crisis. At least 100 demonstrators, including activists and journalists, have been detained, Reuters reported.
"Biden, you should listen to the people here, the elected officials that are Cubans and know what is best for the people in Cuba," a woman with a sweatshirt covering her head from the rain told Fox News in Miami.
"So just hear us out and try to come together to see what we can do."
The protests come as most of America's Democratic socialist lawmakers have been eerily silent on the uprising in Cuba.
Many Republican lawmakers have been speaking out on social media in solidarity with the demonstrations and Cuban citizens' plight for liberty.
Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and the so-called "Squad" of Marxist House Democrats are typically vocal when it comes to communist policies.
However, the self-described socialists have yet to respond as Cubans call for an end to their own communist dictatorship.
On Monday, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) declared its solidarity with the "Revolution" – the term used by the communist regime.
The radical-left group called the uprising a "moment of unrest."
Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, and two other House Democrats - New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman, and Missouri Rep. Cori Bush - make up the four DSA members in Congress.
However, all four members have yet to speak out about the ongoing protests in Cuba.
Meanwhile, Cuba's communist dictator, President Miguel Díaz-Canel, alleged that the U.S. is funding the uprising.
"We are facing tremendous genocide in Cuba," one of the Miami protesters said while holding an umbrella and wearing a beaded necklace with the Cuban flag.
"Joe Biden should help us.
"That’s what we are here for, asking for the White House to pronounce in favor of the people of Cuba."
The man said the Biden administration needs to do more than provide verbal support.
"I think there’s a lot of things they can do to help us," the man added.
"We are asking for international aid."
