Burmese American Advocate Blasts Marco Rubio For Failing To Support The Burmese People

In another sign that Marco Rubio’s self-serving political agenda is alienating immigrant communities across the state, Burmese American leader Daniel Nay Hlaing, the founder of the Jacksonville Myanmar Association, called out Marco Rubio for failing to stand with the Burmese people in a new op-ed in the Miami Herald.

Even worse, Hlaing faults Rubio for prioritizing partisan politics over his support for those suffering under the brutal repression of the Burmese military, accusing him of “snubbing The Burma Act of 2021 for partisan reasons.”
