Maxine Waters has long shared her support for the Castro regime while criticizing US involvement to restore Democracy to the beleaguered island nation. In 1998, Waters wrote to Castro referring to the 1960s and 1970s as a “sad and shameful chapter of our history.” In the same letter, Waters thanked Castro for helping those who had to “flee political persecution.”

That is allegedly a reference to convicted terrorist Assata Shakur, who fled the United States and sought refuge in Cuba after being charged in the murder of a New Jersey State Trooper.

Later, Waters penned an open letter to Castro asking him not to extradite Shakur.
