Obama Administration to ease restrictions towards policies with Cuba

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

The U.S. Senate voted to lift some restrictions on relations with Cuba imposed by the Bush Administration in 2004. It says that Cuban Americans should be allowed to travel to the Communist island once a year and send more money to relatives there. The Senate has also agreed that restrictions on sending food and medicines to Cuba should also be eased. President Obama is expected to sign the bill into law later today.
BBC America Editor Americo Martins joins The Takeaway to discuss what this means for the U.S. and Cuba.
