Pregunta a James Williams, Pte. de “Engage Cuba”: ¿Por qué el permiso de viaje a los norteamericanos les abarataría los trámites y pasajes a Cuba, si no hay rebajas en el caso de los cubanoamericanos que ya tienen ese permiso?
(Pte. de Engage Cuba)
Dear Friend, As Americans prepare for one of the busiest travel weekends of the year, one place their government will deny them the right to visit is Cuba. Travel restrictions, despite the movement toward normalization, remain in place.
In an op-ed in The Huffington Post this week, Engage Cuba President James Williams writes about how travel restrictions impose greater costs on American travelers and stifle our ability to engage with the Cuban people. The op-ed also looks at an important fact: There’s more the White House can and should do to improve travel regulations to increase people-to-people contact. At the same time, Engage Cuba continues its call for Congress to end the travel ban altogether. Below are excerpts from the op-ed as well as a letter from one of our member organizations, the Center for Democracy in the Americas, also calling on the Treasury Department to further ease travel regulations to Cuba.
