Do Obama Regs Violate the LIBERTAD Act? at Capitol Hill Cubans

Do Obama Regs Violate the LIBERTAD Act?
at 12:09 AM

at Capitol Hill Cubans

Last week, the Treasury Department issued final regulations on President Obama's new policy of unlimited family travel and remittances to Cuba.

At first glance, these new regulations appear to be in violation of the Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity (LIBERTAD) Act, which was passed by the U.S. Congress in 1996, and remains law.

According to Section 112 of this law, Reinstitution of Family Remittances and Travel to Cuba:

It is the sense of the Congress that the President should --

(1)(A) before considering the reinstitution of general licenses for family remittances to Cuba, insist that, prior to such reinstitution, the Cuban Government permit the unfettered operation of small businesses fully empowered with the right to hire others to whom they may pay wages and to buy materials necessary in the operation of the businesses, and with such other authority and freedom as are required to foster the operation of small businesses throughout Cuba; and

(B) if licenses described in subparagraph (A) are reinstituted, require a specific license for remittances described in subparagraph (A) in amounts of more than $500; and

(2) before considering the reinstitution of general licenses for travel to Cuba by individuals resident in the United States who are family members of Cuban nationals who are resident in Cuba, insist on such actions by the Cuban Government as abrogation of the sanction for departure from Cuba by refugees, release of political prisoners, recognition of the right of association, and other fundamental freedoms.

Thus far, the Castro regime has refused to recognize and respect human rights, or undertake any political or economic reforms.

Yet, the answer is no.

President Obama did not violate the terms of the LIBERTAD Act, for a "sense of Congress" provision in enacted legislation is merely guidance and not enforceable law.


Nonetheless, the Administration should be respectful of Congress and keep in consideration its bipartisan will prior to executing its policy towards Cuba.

Both of these provisions simply insist on reciprocity for the Cuban people.

If not for Congress, the Obama Administration should do it for the Cuban people.
