Photographer blasts Cuban travel restrictions

After his first trip helped him produce the internationally recognized book “One Week in Cuba,” Sturgeon Bay author and photographer Tom Jordan wants the opportunity for a second one. According to the New York Times, new travel restrictions placed by the Trump administration would ban group trips as well as visits by cruise ships. It was an educational tour that brought Jordan and his wife to Cuba where he saw its beauty and its despair. Jordan believes the people of Cuba, whom he called “welcoming” and “friendly,” will suffer the most.

Americans can still visit Cuba under certain conditions such as family business, journalistic activity, and humanitarian projects. The rollback of Obama-era changes comes at a time when the Trump administration blames Cuba for playing a destabilizing role in the Western Hemisphere according to a release from the U.S. Treasury Department.
