Senators Push for Easier Travel to Cuba

Ad Feedback

If several U.S. Senators have their way, American citizens will soon be able to travel freely to Cuba.

Sens Byron Dorgan and Mike Enzi introduced a bill Tuesday saying the U.S.-Cuba policy needs to be consistent with policy toward other Communist countries.

"We say with China, we say with Vietnam and others, constructive engagement through trade and travel is the right way and the best way to move those countries toward greater human rights," said Dorgan.

"That is significantly a part of what we suggest with respect to Cuba. This is about change and the road to freedom for the Cuban people."

The U.S. imposed travel and trade bans after Fidel Castro took power in Cuba in 1959.

American farmers and businessmen support the Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act.

The U.S. currently sells Cuba an average of $400 million a year in agricultural products.
