From Time magazine, a story on the growing number of Cuban-Americans who want to lift the embargo and travel ban.
A couple of quotes:
The survey by Miami-based Bendixen & Associates, the largest Hispanic polling firm, also found that 48% of older and more conservative Cuban exiles known as historicos support lifting the prohibition, up from 32% in 2002. “I think that all exchange is good,” says one, 68-year-old Miamian Lala Suarez, who before coming to the U.S. was imprisoned in Cuba by Fidel Castro’s government after the failed 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion by militant exiles.
If the travel ban were lifted altogether, recent studies suggest some 3 million Americans would visit Cuba each year. It’s uncertain whether they would be effective ambassadors. But after almost a half-century of failed policy, most Cuban Americans have decided that letting Americans travel to Cuba would be more effective than keeping them away.
The video above is from last year, during the presidential election. I had not seen it, so if you haven’t either, there you go. A growing divide between the young ones and the historicos.
