Cuba lobbying

Expect a renewed lobbying push to remove the travel ban to Cuba.

About 60 activists from 12 states are meeting on Capitol Hill on
Wednesday morning before they start a planned lobbying blitz of
lawmakers. The activists want legislation that will repeal the travel
ban for all Americans to their island neighbor off Florida's coast.

One of the bill's sponsors, Rep. Bill Delahunt (D-Mass.), is expected to
speak to the group. In addition, Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), the bill's
other main sponsor, might be in attendance.

Organized by the Latin American Working Group and the Washington Office
on Latin America, the lobbying push will also be assisted by a call-in
effort at the same time advocating for the travel ban's repeal.
