Letter to the editor: Change Cuba Policy

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

March 30, 2009

I can visit China, North Korea , Vietnam, Iraq, but I cannot visit Cuba 90 miles away. It seems that three South Florida lawmakers of Cuban descent are deciding the policy of the United States toward travel to Cuba. They are deluding themselves into believing anything will change when the old man dies. After living in South Florida for 44 years, I'm sorry I haven't been able to see that country and share the heritage of my Cuban-American neighbors. Our country's policy toward Cuba has not worked and has only hurt the people of Cuba.
