Happy Birthday to Lincoln Díaz-Balart 1954

Happy Birthday to politician Lincoln Díaz-Balart, born in Havana, Cuba on August 13, 1954. When he was four years old, his family fled from Cuba in 1959. Unlike today, Balart and his family were welcomed in El Norte; no paperwork for DACA, DAPA, or DREAMers was required. Balart was educated in Europe and the US, earning his law degree at Ohio’s Case Western Reserve University. In 1979, he began practicing law in Miami, and worked for the Legal Services of Greater Miami, which provided free legal services to the poor. In 1986, he was elected to the Florida House of Representatives, and later to the Florida State Senate, where he served until he earned a seat in the US Congress in 1992. Balart is a Republican who strongly supported the embargo against the Cuban government.
