Pedro Freyre and Augusto Maxwell Remain Go-To National Media Sources on US-Cuba Policy Shifts
January 12, 2017
International Practice Chair Pedro Freyre and Cuba Practice Chair Augusto Maxwell provided national media with leading insights on the White House decision to end decades of U.S.-Cuba immigration policy known as "wet foot, dry foot," which offered Cubans reaching U.S. land with a streamlined pathway to permanent residency. Freyre and Maxwell described how the administration's decision fits in the context of what has been a gradual rapprochement with the island nation on the diplomatic and commercial fronts. Their comments appeared in more than 100 news outlets, including MSN Money, MarketWatch, NPR, The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.
