Yet the U.S. Embassy has no problem granting visas to the Castro family to visit New York City.
In a sad trend, Obama's policy keeps "empowering" the Castro family, while shunning its victims.

U.S. Embassy in Havana Denies Visa to El Sexto
The United States Embassy in Cuba has denied a non-immigrant visa to the graffiti artist Danilo Maldonado, known as “El Sexto” (The Sixth), according to information on Friday from the artist himself, via his Facebook account.
The graffiti artist displayed a document where the embassy said that the decision cannot be appealed, but that it is not permanent. In any event, it recommended that Maldonado wait for one year before submitting a new visa application.
The artist was recently released after spending 10 months in prison without trial for trying to stage a controversial performance in December of 2014. Amnesty International declared him a prisoner of conscience.
