Obama’s Changes on Cuba Spark Controversy

HAVANA TIMES, Jan. 16 – Representatives of the academic community and the hard-line Cuban exiles in the United States reacted with differing opinions regarding the new measures announced by the Barack Obama administration, which reduce restrictions on travel and remittances to Cuba.

According to Wayne Smith, former head of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, “direct people-to-people contacts” can promote change on the island.

Meanwhile, Cuban-American legislator Ileana Ros-Lehtinen affirmed that those measures will only benefit the Cuban authorities, in statements to the Miami-based El Nuevo Herald, reported IPS.

  • Pull up yas boxers and stop whining..The ony thing that wil take pace with the new rules..is people will have more resources. I spend a lot of time here in Cuba and i can see the transformations aready taking place where it reates to remittances and travel. Sure there is still much to be done..however there is a big differance at least in my community in ..Food or no food.
    My cousin Jorge Luis Garcia Perez and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen are of the same ilk POLITRICKSHUNS who manipuate facts and go aong to get along..The only difference between Jorge and Ros- lehtinen, is BLOOD and the fact that Jorge has no right to open his mouth as a traitor to freedom…Go figure?
