Biden Set To Unveil Sanctions Against Cuban Officials, Pledges To Help Cubans Gain Access To Internet


President Joe Biden is expected to unveil some sanctions against Cuban officials who cracked down on the island’s largest pro-democracy protests in decades and will pledge to help the island’s dissidents gain access to the Internet, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

The announcement follows several days of backlash from conservatives and Cuban exiles, who blasted the Biden administration’s first response to the Cuban government’s decision to crack down on pro-democracy demonstrations, which involved reconsidering a potential increase in staff for the U.S. embassy in Havana and a “working group” to explore remittances — payments from Cubans in exile to relatives still on the island.

Biden officials tried to frame their response as a thawing of restrictive policies put in place during the Trump administration, but the U.S. has maintained largely consistent diplomatic relations with Cuba since the Obama administration opened the door to communication with Havana in 2015.
