Congressman Jeff Flake praises White House decision

Here's Flake's reaction from Tucson:
Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, a long-time proponent of the repeal of U.S. travel restrictions to Cuba, today praised the Obama Administration’s efforts to increase travel to Cuba for Americans by expanding travel opportunities for academic research and educational, cultural, and religious travel, as well as increasing the number of international airports eligible for flights to and from Cuba.

“I commend the White House for taking positive measures to allow more Americans to travel to Cuba, this effort has been a long time coming,” said Flake. “I have always felt that the best way to promote democracy in Cuba is to allow American values to be displayed there, and more travel to the country by Americans will do just that. This is a great day for all Cubans and Americans alike.”
