Today, we have learned that House of Representative Republicans are about to succeed with their punitive campaign against Cuban-American families. They are including rollback language in the “Megabus” appropriations bill now being finalized in the Congress that would prevent Cuban Americans from visiting their relatives more often than once every three years and would limit the remittances they can send. President Obama needs to live up to his promise and say “no” to these efforts to once again divide Cuban families. He must insist that he will not sign this bill if the family travel provision is not removed.
Call the White House Comment Line at 202.456.1111 (recorded comment line) or 202.456.1414 (switchboard) to tell President Obama that it is not acceptable for the Megabus spending bill to include a rollback of Cuban-American family travel or remittances. Tell him to support Cuban-American families and reject any provision that limits their travel to Cuba.
