President Barack Obama recently set a new course by opening relations with Cuba. The changes will allow more travel for Americans to Cuba and allow Americans to bring back more goods from their visit. Cuban-Americans also will be able to send more money back to relatives. In addition, businesses will be able to have easier financing for trade.

On Dec. 17, President Barack Obama announced a historic Cuban thaw: The U.S. would resume full diplomatic relations with Cuba for the first time in more than 50 years. Today, a Georgia congressman hails the Cuba-U.S. deal, citing the expansion of Georgia imports to the island and gains of U.S. influence in the region. Meanwhile, a U.S. representative from South Florida calls the initiative a threat to national security that must be thwarted.
