USA: Miami activists protest drastic staff cuts at US Embassy in Havana

Around a dozen cars partook in a motorcade protest on Saturday morning in Miami to rally against US President Donald Trump's administration's recent decision to reduce staff at the US Embassy in Havana. The official reason for the reduction was due to concerns over attacks. However, Steve Warshell, a protester at Saturdays' motorcade, thinks that is just an excuse. «In my opinion, what they... Еще wanted to do was to cut back the resources that they had in the diplomatic mission in Havana to minimise their presence because it doesn't suit the interest of the government of the United States and the rulers of the United States,» Warshell said. Andres Gomez, a member of the Cuban emigrant coalition in Miami called Alianza Martiana that organised the protest, believes the move is a deliberate act by the administration to slow down the visa process for Cubans who are legally allowed to migrate to America. «Obviously, they're against Cubans being able to travel to the United States, either as visitors or as immigrants,» Gomez said. «That's why they have done what they have done.» The current staffing situation at the embassy will make it nearly impossible to grant the twenty thousand visas to Cuban citizens annually as required by the current Migratory Agreements between the two countries.
