Washington, Apr 17 (Prensa Latina) Limiting remittances to Cuban families is simply inhumane, the president of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the US House of Representatives, Eliot Engel, said today about that US measure against the island.
Also, this decision and another in order to further restrict the travel of Americans to the Caribbean country will have no effect on the Cuban government, said the Democratic congressman for New York in a statement.
However, he added, they will be a serious blow for the people of the Caribbean nation.
These criteria followed the announcement of new actions against Cuba made by the National Security Advisor, John Bolton, in the city of Miami, Florida, recognized for his negative positions towards the largest of the Antilles.
I urge President Donald Trump to return to smart policies aimed at supporting the Cuban people instead of causing more damage, said the legislator.
In a previous statement, Engel also criticized the determination communicated Wednesday by Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, that as of May 2, his country will fully apply Title III of the Helms-Burton Law against Cuba.
Through this legislative section, nationals of the United States will have the possibility of taking their courts to individuals and companies, including those of third countries, who invest in Cuban territory on nationalized properties after the triumph of the Revolution on January 1, 1959.
