Don't Turn Back the Clock on Cuba

Cubans now face same deportation risk as other immigrants

Now the William is trying hard to make Trump continue the same as Obama.

While no one expects Trump to sever recently restored diplomatic ties between the former Cold War foes, or re-close the USA embassy in Havana, his administration has been discussing policy changes that include barring business transactions with companies associated with the Cuban military.

In a statement ahead of Trump's announcement, Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson defended the firm's decision to invest in Cuba. Fariñas, who has conducted more than 20 hunger strikes to protest the regime's actions, told VOA that "negotiating with the Cuban government and asking them nothing in return was a mistake". Greater sanctions wouldn't persuade Cuba's one-party state to change its spots; they would just reinvigorate aging hardliners and their narrative of Yanqui persecution. If the two states did not comprise on the same policy, it might lead towards the destruction of lives.

While Cuban-American Republicans like Rubio and U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart of Miami have pushed for changing the Obama policy - which they believe does nothing to advance the conditions of the Cuban people and strengthens the oppressive Cuban regime - groups that favor continuing trade and tourism between the two nations have been pushing for as little change as possible. Trump went there on Friday, June 9th as the part of the scheduled visit to that city. This is the first time a sitting U.S. president has visited Cuba in 88 years. He stated that he wouldn't let the U.S people down and he follows same as Obama and Hillary Clinton do.

"This is one way to ensure that individuals who travel to Cuba are participating in their itinerary and not just sitting on the beach", an official said.

If that policy is reversed, the US entrepreneurial community may lose a lot, above all in terms of commerce, he said in an interview with Prensa Latina.

Asked how Trump's past business interest in Cuba could affect his thinking on US policy, the White House referred comment to the Trump company. Marion Smith is the executive director of Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC).

So why would Trump want to revive the failed policies of the past?

Smith added the Trump should turn the detention with Cuba positively and should push the Cuban Government to release their political prisoners.

AC Origins will be released worldwide at the launch of the Xbox One X and on October 27, 2017 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. Origins will tell the story of one man, the last magi and protector of his community.

Various business and advocacy groups, however, including Human Rights Watch, remain opposed to any reining back. The Trump administration has made it clear that in its "America First" foreign policy, America's economic and security concerns will not be sacrificed in the name of human rights. It is time for Trump to try something new.

These changes will affect Cuba's burgeoning tourist industry that has lured Americans who had always been attracted by the island just 90 miles from Florida but impossibly out of reach thanks to long-standing sanctions.

John Gronbeck-Tedesco is the professor at Ramapo College in New Jersey.

Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform and Jason Pye of FreedomWorks, along with seven other conservative organizations, sent Trump an open letter Thursday pressing him not to unravel Obama's policies that expanded travel to and trade with Cuba.

"Some 85 percent of our clients are Americans and they are the ones who consume most and pay the best", said Yuri Barroso, doing promotion for a restaurant on Plaza Vieja, a square surrounded by elegantly restored colonial buildings.

But for those in the tourism industry, that has benefited tangibly from a threefold increase in USA visitors in the past two years, it is a different story.

According to reports by one USA official who had seen the president's memorandum on the issue, the rollback will include a tightening of travel restricitons on US citizens travelling to the island and a restriction on USA business dealings with companies tied to Cuba's military. Trump reportedly cited human-rights violations in Cuba as justification for a new USA approach; video continues to circulate on the Internet of a man, at a Havana May Day celebration, who is crushed and carried off by others as he runs with an American flag over his head as other revelers look on. This strategy might be a wayto balance the conflicting demands between those who advocate either isolating or engaging Cuba.

White House officials describe the policy change as fulfilling a promise Trump made to Florida's Cuban exile community last fall.

Obama's rules encouraged the U.S travel to Cuba.
