The United States government announced Friday new measures that will limit to $1,000 per quarter the amount of money in remittances that Cuban residents in the US can send family members on the island.

"OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) is placing a cap of $1,000 U.S. dollars per quarter that one remitter can send per quarter to one Cuban national," US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.
