Republican Rep. Maria Salazar is set to present a decision, with 190 co-sponsors, to condemn socialism and "remind" U.S. citizens why the doctrine is "dangerous and patently anti-American."

Salazar, R-Fla., is expected to start the resolution Wednesday afternoon, with the help of 190 Republican colleagues, which will describe historical examples of atrocities and failures of socialism.

The resolution asserts that the socialist ideas "necessitates a concentration of power that has time and time again collapsed into Communist regimes, totalitarian rule, and brutal dictatorships."

The resolution states that the United States was "founded on the belief in the sanctity of the individual, to which the collectivistic system of socialism in all of its forms is fundamentally and necessarily opposed."

The decision requests the House of Representatives to condemn socialism "in all its forms," and to reject "the implementation of socialist policies in the United States of America."

An advocate to Salazar told Fox News that the introduction of the resolution comes as "socialism is losing its traditional stigma in American society."

"It is critical to remind U.S. citizens why this form of economic management is both dangerous and patently anti-American," the aide said, urging Republicans to "force the Democrats to take a vote on this."

Orlando Gutierrez-Boronat, the leader of a Cuban refugee group, is denouncing praise 1619 Project founder Nikole Hannah-Jones lent to the socialist country he left.

Hannah-Jones recently caught headlines for telling Vox that "Cuba has the least inequality between black and white people anywhere really in the hemisphere." She added: "That's largely due to socialism - which I'm sure no one wants to hear."

"I think what she’s doing is what’s always been done … it’s really abusive of Cubans," Gutierrez-Boronat told Fox News on Wednesday.

"They use an incorrect history of Cuba, an engineered history of Cuba in order to justify an ideology. And Cuba has a life of its own. It’s got a region of its own. It’s got a history of its own, and the history of Cuba shouldn’t be manipulated to justify an ideology."

He stressed that "socialism is a slogan, it's a technique used by totalitarianism to consolidate power. In the name of equality, they fragment the population so they won't rise up against it – and they try to turn one group against with only the state as mediator."

Removing the Castro regime would bring free elections, economic freedom and allow "an education that is not skewed by ideology," according to Gutierrez-Boronat.
