Restoration of Obama's Cuba Policy by the Biden-Harris Administration
We ask you to confirm the pledge of the Biden-Harris Administration to "promptly restore" President Obama's opening with Cuba including general licenses for all travel; cultural, sports and educational exchanges; flights to regions and cruises; unrestricted remittances and personal transfers; agricultural sales; business agreements; and renewal of full embassy and consular services.
Why is this important?
During their campaign, President Biden and Vice President Harris pledged to "promptly reverse the failed Trump policies that have inflicted harm on the Cuban people".
Substantial majorities of Americans support repairing the Trump Administration's symbolic and substantive damage to our freedom as well as to our national political and economic interest.
Sadly the Biden-Harris Administration has allowed the shadow of Trump to dominate US policy on Cuba more than four months after replacing him.
It is unprincipled to continue to deny Cuban Americans the ability to provide desperately needed remittances to their families and to ignore the Constitutional right of all Americans to travel.
Prompt action is essential so independent visitors and specialized travel agencies can create trips that renew support for Cuba's private sector by the summer of 2021.
Cruise lines, tour operators, airlines, universities, cultural exchanges, agricultural producers and businesses require early policy change in order to resume jobs generating engagement in the 2021-2022 season.
