MIAMI -- Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan is courting Cuban-American voters with promises to be tougher on the Castro government than President Barack Obama.

Ryan campaigned Saturday morning in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood. He'll hold a town hall in the afternoon at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Miami's Cuban-American congressional representatives and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's son Craig touted Ryan's credentials in English and Spanish for the breakfast crowd.

Ryan said he and Romney would help get Latinos back to work. He also said America offered a better life to immigrants seeking freedom and prosperity. Cubans benefit from the so-called wet foot, dry foot policy that provides those who literally step on U.S. soil with temporary visas and a path to legal citizenship.
