MIAMI — A growing number of Cuban-Americans are concerned about two bills in Congress that would reinstate strict limits over their travel to Cuba and the money they send family there. One of the bills would also limit new cultural and educational exchanges.

Backers of the bill say people are abusing the system and are propping up a repressive regime.

The measures highlight the split between those who fled the country decades ago and those who left more recently and maintain ties there.

The bills are likely to pass the House but face opposition in the Senate and a presidential veto threat.

Sonia Rodriguez is among those who oppose the measures. She doesn't want her money going to the Cuban government but fears without her help, her mother in Cuba will go hungry.
