Generally on the last Sunday of each month, these caravans have now spread worldwide, initiated by Cuban-Americans in Miami to End the US blockade and to support Cuban families. The economic blockade of Cuba is now 60 years old, and under Trump US flights to most Cuban cities, most remittances, Western Union licenses, etc. were all shut down. Biden has not reversed any of this.

Biden and Congress must also recognize that 69% of undocumented workers in the US are also front-line “essential” workers. They should be given a swift path to citizenship and be eligible for all pandemic payments.

End all inhumane border separations and restrictions on family unification!
