President Barack Obama is allowing Americans to make unlimited trips and money transfers to family in Cuba and easing other restrictions to usher in a new era of openness toward the island nation ruled by communists for 50 years. About 1.5 million Americans have relatives on the island nation that turned to communist rule in 1959 when Fidel Castro seized control.

Some lawmakers, backed by business and farm groups seeing new opportunities in Cuba, are advocating wider revisions in the trade and travel bans imposed after Castro came to power in Havana. But the official said that Obama is keeping the decades-old U.S. trade embargo, arguing that that policy provides leverage to pressure the regime to free all political prisoners as one step toward normalized relations with the U.S.

Do you think it was unfair for President Obama to allow Cuban-Americans the right to travel to Cuba, but not any other Americans?

Well that does kinda seem unfair but it depends on the person who wants to travel there.

Yes it is unfair. There are Americans other than Cuban-Americans that want to travel there as well.
Just another proof that he's trying to turn America into either a socialist or communist nation...

If he were trying to make it a Communist nation, then EVERYBODY would be able to go to Cuba, since Communism is meant to create equality for everybody.

This move is in fact the opposite of Communism, since he is singling out a group of people.
