WASHINGTON — The White House refused to say Sunday whether President Obama would be talking to Cuban officials about US fugitives who have found a refuge there, but critics blasted the historic trip Sunday for rewarding Cuba while convicted cop-killer Joanne Chesimard remains free and President Raul Castro’s human-rights abuses have worsened.
The White House declined to go into detail Sunday but said the fugitive issue is one “of long-standing concern to the United States that will be addressed in the broader context of normalizing relations between the United States and Cuba.”
Critics, led by New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, blasted Obama.
"The simple truth is, deals with the devil require the devil to deal," Menendez said in advance of the visit.
