Retired US Colonel demands visas for wives of Miami Five

Campaign News | Thursday, 17 July 2008

Message from Colonel, U.S. Army (Retired) Larry Wilkerson demanding the granting of visas to Adriana Perez and Olga Salanueva

"If there is any kindness in anyone in the current U.S. leadership, indeed, if there is any recognition of the dignity of the individual human being, then there must be a recognition that these women, Adriana Perez and Olga Salanueva, should be allowed to visit their husbands.

"This is simple human kindness. It is difficult for me to believe that there is no such kindness left in America's leadership. After all, why are we frightened of two women who want to see their husbands after a decade of separation?"

Larry Wilkerson
