Reaction of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)
To Friday’s Announcement On Passenger Air Service
Between The United States And Cuba

Friday, June 10, 2016

"This is another welcome and long overdue step by the United States government to reverse a half century of misguided restrictions on the rights of Americans to travel freely to Cuba, as Americans can to every other country in the world. Americans will be warmly welcomed by the Cuban people, with whom we have much in common, and Cubans who travel here will experience the generosity of the American people and the opportunities that come from living in a democracy. I hope the Congress will soon put an end to all remaining restrictions on travel to Cuba.”
