This past Tuesday, Ana Quintana, Heritage policy analyst for Latin America and the Western Hemisphere, testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform’s Subcommittee on National Security.

She discussed the Obama Administration’s failed policy approach to the Castro regime in Cuba, and what can be done to establish more effective policy toward Cuba.

From Quintana’s testimony:

The Obama-era Cuba policy has been a demonstrated failure for both U.S. national security interests, the rule of law, and the future of a free Cuba. The failures were not contained to Cuba either, as the regime’s destabilizing role in the region was never contained.

Watch her testimony below:

As a Heritage member you are shaping the message to Congress.

How should the U.S. approach its relationship with Cuba?

Tuesday, Senator Ted Cruz released an op-ed in the Washington Post about the U.S. relationship with North Korea that extensively cited research done by The Heritage Foundation.

In the op-ed Cruz stated:

President Trump’s November decision to designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism — in response to legislation I introduced that passed in Congress last year — was more than just a symbolic move.

The administration has not only plugged holes in America’s sanctions regime against Pyongyang, but it has also established a decisive break from the policy failures of past administrations. It’s now time to seize the initiative, put Kim Jong Un on his heels and set conditions on America’s terms.

The Heritage report that Cruz cited dealt with imposing sanctions on North Korea.

When leading elected officials cite Heritage’s research in their work, it demonstrates the impact your Heritage membership is making on the conservative movement.

Thank you for making this possible.

Do you agree with Senator Cruz? Has the time arrived for the United States to put Kim Jong Un on his heels? 

Heritage’s president, Kay Coles James, had a busy week hosting leaders at Heritage.

On Tuesday the Administrator of the EPA, Scott Pruitt, hosted her at the White House Mess to discuss shared goals and how they can work together.

On Wednesday the Ambassador of South Korea joined Mrs. James, Dr. Feulner, and key Heritage experts to further strengthen the relationship between Heritage and the people of South Korea.

Later that evening Mrs. James hosted over 20 members of Congress for a dinner to build relationships with them and discuss her vision for the future of Heritage.

Thanks to you and our over half a million Heritage members, we are able to host a continuous flow of leaders which serves to strengthen the conservative movement.

Who would you like to see come to Heritage in the future?

Today, Ivanka Trump came by Heritage for a surprise visit at the invitation of Heritage’s new president, Kay Coles James.

Ivanka received a full tour of Heritage and met many of our experts and staff as well as had a private briefing with our Heritage interns. Upon completion of the tour Ivanka suggested having a number of her policy team come by Heritage for regular briefings.

Afterwards, Heritage president Kay James visited the White House at the invitation of President Trump for a public proclamation signing honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.

Relationships like these, with leaders in Washington, demonstrate the impact your support of Heritage. As a Heritage member, your voice is being heard by the most powerful people in our country.

Thank you for making this possible.

If you could ask Ivanka Trump one question, what would it be?

One way your conservative principles continue to be shared through Heritage is by experts testifying before Congress on pressing issues such as the threat of China’s military.

This week was no exception as Dean Cheng, senior research fellow in Heritage’s Asian Studies Center, testified before the House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities surrounding China’s pursuit of emerging and exponential military technology.

Watch his full statement below:

Do you agree with Cheng’s analysis of the threat China poses?
