Sarcasm / Rosa Maria Rodriguez Torrado

The Cuban government defends the rights of American citizens to travel to Cuba.

For foreigners, they file complaints and take matters to court, something they refuse to do for their own countrymen and women, where they determine, without a moment’s hesitation and with no qualms, those able to temporarily travel wherever they like and those from whom they snatch away this lofty ambition.<

And Cubans who reside elsewhere — including those within the United States — do not escape this selective, discriminatory pointed-finger which decides who gets to enter home soil and who doesn’t.

These laws are capricious and one-sided: a fifty-year long, degrading blockade of the rights and freedoms of the Cuban people.
