Just five years ago, in March of 2016, Barrack Obama visited Cuba as the first sitting president to do so since 1928. This historic event culminated a diplomatic process that included an easing of certain elements of the embargo that allowed for more US investment, travel to the island by US citizens, and an updated immigration policy.
