U.S. District Judge Alan S. Gold issued a preliminary injunction against the law that requires Florida travel agencies that book trips to Cuba to post a $250,000 bond earlier today.

He rules that the law, which took effect July 1, cannot be enforced because it may violate a constitutional mandate that states that the the federal government is responsible for US foreign policy, not individual states.

The law was introduced, support and passed by Cuban-American lawmakers, who want to impede on American citizens’ rights of international travel.

The injunction will remain in effect until a trial can be held on the law’s constitutionality. No date was given.

    Hooray for freedom of trade, travel and markets.

    Shame again on all Florida lawmakers who voted in favor of this unAmerican law.

    some american laws are ridiculous! this is a great injunction at a time when executive branch has grabbed all powers. US believes in globalisation but act against it.
