President Considers Loosening Travel Restrictions to Cuba

u.s.-cuba relationsThe Orlando Sentinel reported yesterday that President Obama and his Administration is considering easing the restrictions imposed on U.S. citizens on traveling to Cuba.

Loosening the travel restrictions would expand opportunities for American students, educators and researchers to visit Cuba.  However, the ongoing economic embargo that the U.S. imposed on Cuba 50 years ago will remain intact.

This is great news for the Cuban people and for their families in the U.S.  It is also great news that U.S.-Cuban relations have improved because of steps President Obama and his Administration have already taken.

Overall, there is still a long way to go before Cuba will no longer be isolated as it has been for the past 50 years.
