Statement from National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Vietor on Alan Gross

Today’s sentencing adds another injustice to Alan Gross’s ordeal.  He has already spent too many days in detention and should not spend one more. We urge the immediate release of Mr. Gross so that he can return home to his wife and family.
