U.S.-Cuba News Brief: 08/02/2019

August 2, 2019

Dear Friends,

This week, Senator Patrick Leahy (VT) reintroduced the Freedom for Americans to Travel to Cuba Act of 2019 in the Senate, following the bill’s reintroduction last week in the House by Representatives Jim McGovern (MA-02) and Tom Emmer (MN-06). In our press statement last week, Emily Mendrala praised the legislation, stating that “The Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act of 2019 would allow Americans to directly engage with the Cuban people, especially with Cuba’s growing private sector. It is time we move past the antiquated laws and policies that have for too long divided the U.S. and Cuban people, to the detriment of both.” Read the full PRESS STATEMENT.
