In response to the health attacks on American Diplomats in Cuba, six weeks ago, the U.S. Embassy in Havana ceased issuing visas to Cubans wishing to come to the United States. As stories of many of those Cubans seeking U.S. visas begin to emerge, PobleteTamargo attorney, Jason Poblete discussed the State Department’s decision in an article published in the Tampa Bay Times.

Poblete explained that it is unfair to place the blame on the United States. The health attacks occurred on Cuban soil and it was up to the Cuban government to protect foreign diplomats.

“If Cuba wants access to the U.S. market, it they want visas, if they want to do business here, Cuba needs to earn that,” Poblete said. “Access to the U.S. market is a privilege, not a right.”
