RUBIO: OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SHOULD CLARIFY ITS ENFORCEMENT POLICY ON AMERICANS THAT TRAVEL TO CUBA

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Marco Rubio issued the following statement today regarding reports that the Obama Administration is not properly enforcing U.S. law banning American tourism to Cuba:

“U.S. law clearly bans tourism to Cuba by American citizens because it provides money to a cruel, repressive and murderous regime.  Since their inception, the Obama Administration’s ‘people to people’ cultural exchange programs have been abused by tourists who have no interest in the Cuban people’s freedom and either don’t realize or don’t care that they’re essentially funding the regime’s systematic trampling of people’s human rights.

“According to recent news reports, Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Cuba trip, which the regime seized on for propaganda purposes, was fully licensed by the Treasury Department.  If true, the Obama Administration should explain exactly how trips like these comply with U.S. law and regulations governing travel to Cuba and it should disclose how many more of these trips they have licensed.”
