U.S. Senator Heads to Cuba

A congressional delegation led by U.S. Senator Barbara Lee (D-CA) will head to Cuba today to discuss the possibility of opening up the island nation to American tourism in the near future.

Over the last few months, America’s new administration under Barack Obama has been working to try and improve relations with Cuba that were worsened by the policies of the Bush Administration.

“America’s harsh approach toward our nearest Caribbean neighbor divides families, closes an important market to struggling U.S. farmers, harasses our allies, and is based on antiquated Cold War-era thinking,” said Lee.

The U.S. economic, financial, commercial, and tourism ban on Cuba was implemented in 1959 after Fidel Castro successfully led a revolution that ousted the Batista-run government and communized U.S. assets in the country.
