South Florida Republican Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart want the U.S. government to probe how Beyonce and Jay-Z were allowed to go to Cuba.
The couple traveled to Cuba to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary. But that's not cool with the Florida Republicans, who penned a letter to the head of the Office of Foreign Assets Control:
"As you know, U.S. law expressly prohibits the licensing of financial transactions for “tourist activities” in Cuba (Section 910(b)(1) of the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act). If these individuals were given people-to-people licenses, we would like to bring to your attention the Cuba Travel Advisory issued by OFAC on July 25, 2011 which states, “OFAC only licenses People-to-People Groups that certify that all participants will have a full-time schedule of educational exchange activities that will result in meaningful interaction between the travelers and individuals in Cuba."
