Maximo Alvarez is the president of Sunshine Gas. He recently participated in a round table discussion at the White House and his words were electric.
Alvarez talked about his family escaping Communism in Spain and then again in Cuba.
He talked about America as the only place in the world which allows complete freedom of opportunity.
He also warned America about the current protests which he says are not for socialism, but communism.
Real Clear Politics provides a partial transcript:
ALVAREZ: Look at our backgrounds. Just think that in 1961 as a 13-year-old by myself on my way to Spain, I wasn’t even coming here I arrived in this great country and almost 60 years later I am sitting next to the president of the United States talking about the American dream.
The only country in the world, no other country in the world that you can start a business from the trunk of your car and within a very few years with hard work, commitment and all of the core values that we learned from this very culture of ours we can become very important to our future. We can become those people who make the next generation better than the one before.
This is the only country why do you think you have to close the borders? Because everybody in the world wants to come over here. Nobody is ever forced to come over here, we come over here in my case because my parents chose that I would not be indoctrinated by the communist country, by the totalitarian country, by the totalitarian regime. They don’t educate children, absolutely not and this is something that we need to understand.
What is happening in our backyard today I experienced as an 11-year-old. I remember vividly all of the promises that a guy named Castro gave and held 99 percent of the people swallowed the pill.
