City, state legislatures speak up for a sane Cuba policy

On June 16, President Trump, in a blustering speech to a right-wing audience in Miami, Florida, announced a partial roll-back of the opening to Cuba that had been announced by U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro in December of 2014.
But in several parts of the country, legislative bodies at the state and municipal levels are speaking out forcefully, not only against the new Trump policy, but for a complete change of U.S. policy toward Cuba.
If this grows into a national movement, it could be the most effective challenge to U.S. anti-Cuba policy seen in years.
