USCCB backs Obama on easing travel to Cuba

Catholic Culture:

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops has praised President Barack Obama for his executive order easing restrictions on travel to Cuba.

Bishop Howard Hubbard of Albany, New York, the chairman of the US bishops’ committee on justice and peace, said that the executive order took “modest but important steps” in allowing for greater travel and direct assistance to the people of Cuba. He predicted that “greater people-to-people assistance to Cubans will be another step toward supporting the people of Cuba in achieving greater freedom, human rights, and religious liberty.”

The US bishops, along with the Vatican, have frequently called for an end to the 50-year-old embargo on Cuba, arguing that restrictions on trade and travel have harmed the country’s people rather than the Castro regime.
