A new agreement between Cuba and Major League Baseball raised hopes that those dangerous journeys could draw to an end. But only months after being announced, the deal could be unraveling, thanks in part to the backward politics of Republican Sen. Marco Rubio. This is a humanitarian mistake that only punishes innocent families.
