Trump to announce plan to stop cash flow to Cuban military

Cubans now face same deportation risk as other immigrants

Stopping short of a complete turnabout, President Donald Trump is expected Friday to announce a revised Cuba policy aimed at stopping the flow of USA cash to the country's military and security services while maintaining diplomatic relations and allowing US airlines and cruise ships to continue service to the island.

Therefore, it would not be the United States first, as the president claims, but last, Williams added.

Taking advantage of former president Barack Obama's relaxation of a half-century of travel restrictions, Ferrer, a student from Miami, spent 10 days in Cuba fulfilling her childhood dream, in an emotionally charged journey across Cuba that until recently would have been unthinkable. While there's no indications of a clampdown on agricultural sales allowed on a cash-only basis since 2000, cooled relations may drive buyers elsewhere, said Bob Young, chief economist for the American Farm Bureau Federation in Washington.

About 4 million visitors traveled to Cuba a year ago, including 614,000 Americans and Cuban Americans, a 34 percent increase over 2015, Cuban tourism ministry data shows. But as soon as new regulations are drafted by the Treasury and Commerce Departments, they're likely to pour cold water on the burgeoning Cuban travel business.

Barring unexpected events, President Donald Trump will disclose our nation's new Cuba policy in Miami today.

"The goal of these policies is very simple".

It outlines President Trump's pushback on Obama Administration initiatives, which weakened the longstanding economic US embargo on Cuba.

Of major note, there will be no change to the "wet foot, dry foot" policy and the US embassy in Cuba will also remain open.

"Many, many people are telling me that we have to squeeze the government once and for all", Rodiles said.

The main supporters of an extensive reversal have been Cuban Americans in Congress, led by Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, and Republican Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida - have lobbied Trump hard to revive the travel ban and embargo.

The White House says it's willing to negotiate more favorable terms with Cuba, but only if the Castro regime allows free and fair elections and releases political prisoners. That seems odd given that the Trump administration is not particularly fond of pursuing that agenda in its foreign policy: there was no mention of human rights and political freedom during his visit to Saudi Arabia, for example.

"All of the problems between the two countries need to end so she can go to the U.S. Embassy and say, 'I want to see my son, ' buy a ticket and go for the weekend", Reinoso said.

For the announcement, the White House chose to have Trump speak at the Manuel Artime Theate in Miami. "More travel, more communications' access, and more dialogue with Cuba are the way forward for human rights in Cuba".

The U.S. severed diplomatic relations with Cuba in 1961 after Fidel Castro's revolution.

The results have been uneven.

But Trump has often said Obama's deal making with Cuba has been one-sided.

"It's a backdoor but effective way to blow normalization up", says one Miami consultant to US firms negotiating opportunities in Cuba.

Survey after survey shows that a majority of Americans, Cuban-Americans, and Cubans in the island favor greater economic ties between the United States and Cuba.

An increase in tourism and hotel construction has been one of the few bright spots in the Cuban economy. This will essentially shield US airlines and cruise lines now serving the island. He promised them to provide more job opportunities and to reduce trade will not assist in doing that and so Trump is a confusion state.

More than a quarter of the Cuban labor force no longer works for the communist government, from software programmers to nail salon owners, private taxi drivers and restaurant owners.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told lawmakers Cuba "must begin to address human rights challenges" if it wants to preserve the diplomatic rapprochement begun by Obama.
