"Schmucksters" for Peace get Fined

Bush Enforcing Cuba Embargo In New Push

WASHINGTON - The Bush administration is cracking down on Americans who have violated the embargo against Cuba, targeting a "solidarity" trip to Havana in July 2005 by the New York-based pro-Castro group Pastors for Peace.

The Treasury Department sent administrative subpoenas to more than 100 people who traveled to Cuba last summer with the activist group - a first-step enforcement action that could lead to up to $65,000 in fines being imposed on each traveler.
