The Power Lies With Congress

11:41 PM Sunday, October 4, 2009
At Capitol Hill Cubans

The non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO), which is known as "the investigative arm of the Congress," has just issued a report (GAO-09-951R ) entitled, "U.S. Embargo on Cuba: Recent Regulatory Changes and Potential Presidential or Congressional Actions."

According to this report, absent the respect for fundamental human rights and democratic reforms in Cuba, the legal power to unilaterally lift sanctions remains within the purview of the U.S. Congress.

Here's the Executive Summary:

The President is authorized to suspend or end the embargo in the event of certain political changes in Cuba. Under the Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity (LIBERTAD) Act of 1996, on determining that a transition Cuban government is in power., the President may take steps to suspend the embargo, including its implementing regulations restricting financial transactions related to travel, trade, and remittances He may also suspend enforcement of several legislative measures related to the embargo. LIBERTAD also requires that on determining that a democratically elected Cuban government is in power, the President must take steps to end the embargo, including the implementing regulations, and that once he has made such a determination, certain listed embargo-related legislative measures are automatically repealed.

Absent a presidential determination of a democratically elected Cuban government, the President could end the embargo only if Congress were to amend or repeal LIBERTAD and various other embargo-related statutes, including provisions in the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, the Food Security Act of 1985, the Cuban Democracy Act of 1992, the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 1999, and the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000 (TSRA). Such provisions include, for example, section 908(B)(1) and 910(B) of TSRA that require payment of cash in advance or third country financing for agricultural exports to Cuba and prohibit Treasury from authorizing travel to Cuba for tourist activities by persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction.
