“The Trade Sanctions Reform Act (TSRA), signed into law by President [William Bill] Clinton in October 2000, allowed the export of food and medicine to Cuba, but prohibited any U.S. financing, both public and private, of such exports. The legislation also codified the ban on travel to Cuba for tourism, which throughout its history had been mandated only by Executive Order.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.] [Pro Embargo] [Con Embargo]
