Public designation of Raul Castro by US State Department due to involvement in gross violations in human rights

On 26 September, the State Department publicly designated Raul Modesto Castro Ruz, the First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party and First Secretary of the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces.  As a result, he and his immediate family members are ineligible for entry into the US. The Department is also publicly designating his children, Alejandro Castro Espin, Deborah Castro Espin, Mariela Castro Espin, and Nilsa Castro Espin.
