Obama Gets Something Right - Cuba

Cubans celebrate release of prisoners with national flag in Camaguey, east of Havana. 17 Dec 2014
(Reuters) - The United States and Cuba agreed on Wednesday to restore diplomatic ties that Washington severed more than 50 years ago, and President Barack Obama called for an end to the long economic embargo against its old Cold War enemy.

After 18 months of secret talks, Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro agreed in a phone call on Tuesday on a breakthrough prisoner exchange, the opening of embassies in each other's countries, and an easing of some restrictions on commerce.

The two leaders made the announcement in simultaneous televised speeches. The Vatican and Canada facilitated the deal.

Obama's call for an end to the economic embargo drew resistance from Republicans who will control both houses of Congress from January and who oppose normal relations with the communist-run island.
Obama said he was ending what he called a rigid and outdated policy of isolating Cuba that had failed to achieve change on the island.

His administration's policy shift includes an opening to more commerce in some areas, allowing use of U.S. credit and debit cards, increasing the amount of money that can be sent to Cubans and allowing export of telecommunications devices and services.

Rand Paul introduces bill to undo Obama’s immigration order

Rand Paul introduces bill to undo Obama's immigration order

“I believe that the Constitution is clear that the legislative power resides in Congress,” Paul said in a statement.

“The President is not a king and he does not have the power to enact laws then execute his own laws.

 Our Constitution is being violated by this executive order and other actions by the Obama Administration to govern by executive fiat.”
                                                                               Rand Paul

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has filed a bill seeking to repeal President Obama’s executive order that delays deportation of five million immigrants, the Courier Journal reported Saturday.
Paul’s bill, “Preventing Executive Overreach on Immigration Act,” is companion legislation to a House bill passed last week from Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.)
The Kentucky Republican’s proposal, posted on his website Friday, prohibits the president from using discretion when determining who to deport.
