Obama to Lift Travel Restrictions on Cuban-Americans

The 1.5 million Americans with relatives in Cuba will soon be able to travel freely to Cuba and transfer money to their family members on the island. The Obama administration hopes that the ease in restrictions will help reduce Cuban dependence on the communist regime, eventually making way for political change.

Under Bush, Cuban-Americans were only allowed to travel to Cuba for two weeks every three years.

The administration will also allow US telecom companies to provide cell phone and television services to Cubans.

An official announcement will come later today. Do you think it sounds like a good plan? Should all Americans be able to travel freely to Cuba?
