Rescind Cuba "Travel Warning", Restore US Visas

To be delivered to Thomas A. Shannon, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Donald Trump

Petition Statement

We urge the State Department to immediately rescind its politically motivated Travel Warning on Cuba and suspension of issuing US visitor and migrant visas in Havana.

The freedom of independent and group travel to Cuba by all US citizens must also be protected by regulation and by law.
There are currently 784 signatures. NEW goal - We need 1,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The State Department and White House have yielded to pressure from a hard line minority of Cuban Americans to reverse President Obama's historic steps toward more normal relations between the US and Cuba.

Senator Marco Rubio has exploited fear and uncertainty about the health situation of US intelligence agents and other personnel in Havana to endanger rapidly growing travel that fosters mutual understanding and trust.

He fears hundreds of thousands of Americans annually forming their own opinion about bilateral relations, countless Cuban entrepreneurs creating a better future for their families and the construction of a vibrant Cuban community across the Florida Straits.

Cooperation and engagement are the only path to resolve outstanding issues, not the drastic and precipitous removal of both countries' essential embassy staff.
