On 'Radio Times': Traveling to Cuba under Trump

The Cuban government said the Trump administration's demand that it release all US fugitives like convicted cop killer Joanne Chesimard, is a no-go.

The Policy mandates that those traveling must engage in a full-time schedule of activities that enhance contact with the Cuban people, support civil society in Cuba, or promote the Cuban people's independence.

Disappointed with President Trump's decision to reverse USA policy on Cuba, a committee of American Catholic bishops is calling on the president to keep ordinary Cubans in mind as he curtails trade and tourism.

When asked whether the president plans to announce any further sanctions against the Cuban government, Spicer said, "wW're one business day into these actions that the president took". He has stated the reason for changing the Cuban policy is Cuba's human rights violations.

One of biggest changes the president announced was what he called a "ban on tourism", but Department of the Treasury documents say the restrictions refer to "individual people-to-people" travel from the U.S. to Cuba, which basically means that a visitor can go on his or her own to the island for "educational travel" that is not tied to a university or academic degree program or group.

Some study overseas and academic exchange will continue to be allowed under the rule change, as 12 categories of travel to Cuba - including some educational activities and professional research and meetings - will remain permissible. Travelers must keep full and accurate records of all transactions related to any authorized travel, and such records must be available for OFAC examination for a five-year period following the conclusion of travel. The Trump administration will bar commerce with businesses owned by Cuba's military and intelligence services. The Treasury Department is also directed to regularly audit travel to Cuba to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations. This includes Grupo de Administracion Empresarial S.A. (GAESA), its affiliates, subsidiaries, and successors.

Officials have confirmed they will not seek reinstatement of the controversial "wet foot, dry foot" policy, which granted special asylum rights to undocumented migrants from Cuba while denying them to migrants from other countries.

He pointed out that, in addition to ignoring the majority opinion of the Cuban people, who wants to have a better relationship with the U.S., these guidelines will cause economic damages "not only to state companies, but also to cooperatives, and will especially hurt private sector workers " of the island.
