Reaction to the news of the United States warming its relationship with Cuba continues to generate conflicting feelings for Cuban-Americans living in this country.
Members of the Cuban Lycium in Bridgeport say they have mixed opinions following President Barack Obama's announcement of potential relations with Cuba.
They say that while it's exciting to possibly travel to Cuba, it's also questionable what will happen to the people living there. They add that they have heard similar promises from the Castro dynasty before.
They say Americans could potentially be supporting the Cuban government through tourism, but the people of Cuba may not benefit at all. Many who still have family back in Cuba are worried about them more than anything else.
