Trump administration’s new Cuba travel restrictions are counterproductive, archbishop warns

CWN Editor's Note: “The very survival of the Church in Cuba is dependent on the freedom of religious travel and donations from abroad,” said Archbishop Timothy Broglio of the Military Services, chairman of the USCCB Committee on International Justice and Peace, following the announcement of travel restrictions. “The Holy See and USCCB have long held that the key to Cuba’s transformation depends not on isolation, but on greater cultural exchange between freedom-loving people on the island and the United States.”

    I've had high regard for Archbishop Broglio. This statement baffles me. Cubans know very well what kind of regime they live under and the difference between it and the U.S. Americans traveling there isn't necessary. Besides,the Holy See can still send any donations from Catholics that want to help out co-religionists. His warning makes no sense to me.
