As a world leader, the U.S. needs to take a stand in favor of press freedom when it is undermined. It’s a simple gesture, but passing this resolution shows the U.S. supports journalists and the truth.
There is not a lot the U.S. can do to ensure that freedom of the press is upheld in Latin American or Caribbean countries. Congress shouldn’t waste its time by bothering with a resolution supporting something it can't impact.
