U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., is calling on the Trump administration to get tougher when it comes to stolen properties in Cuba.

On Tuesday, Scott urged the administration to fully enact parts of the Libertad Act.

“This action would allow American citizens to sue companies and their subsidiaries for trafficking in stolen properties, and deny entry to the United States to foreign nationals involved in the trafficking of stolen properties in Cuba,” Scott’s office noted.

Scott noted that the anniversary of the failed Bay of Pigs invasion was this week and insisted the fight against the communist regime continues.

“On Wednesday, we will commemorate the 58th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion and reflect on the brave individuals that sacrificed their lives fighting for freedom and democracy,” Scott said. “It’s a fight that continues today. Ahead of this important day, I’m calling on the administration to fully implement Title III and IV of the Libertad Act to show Castro that his era of influence in Latin America is over.

“Allowing American citizens to sue for stolen property in Cuba and denying foreign nationals involved in trafficking stolen property entry into the United States is a huge step toward cutting off the money supply to the Castro regime,” Scott added. “It’s a step we have to take now as we fight to bring a new day of freedom and democracy to Cuba and all of Latin America.”

Scott was first elected to the U.S. Senate last year after two terms as governor.
