Despite supposed reforms, Castro dictatorship maintains travel restriction on Cubans

As expected, the supposed migratory reforms of Cuban dictator Raul Castro are not as reforming as the "Cuba Experts," the international media, and the Castro sycophants here in the U.S. would lead you to believe. It turns out the Castro regime continues to maintain a list of Cubans who will not be allowed to leave the island.

Via Café Fuerte (my translation):

Cuba will not allow 'regulated individuals' to leave the country

Official sources have informed that Cuban authorities will be able to detain citizens at airports attempting to leave the country who are classified as "regulated individuals."

According to statements made by Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Alvarez, head of the Migratory Exit office at the Jose Marti Airport in Havana, travelers who are found on a list of regulated migration when checking in for their flights can be detained.

"During the process of migratory inspection, the inspector checks the list, and if the person turns out be regulated, they are removed from the line of travelers leaving the country and taken to an office designated or established for the purpose of explaining to these persons the situation they find themselves in. It is there that they are told why they are on the list and the issues they have," explained Alavarez in report aired on Cuban television.
