DENVER -- President Barack Obama and his family will make a historic trip to Cuba on Sunday, marking the first time a sitting U.S. president will visit the country since 1928.

The trip is controversial as many believe the Fidel Castro regime has not done enough to improve conditions on the island.

Maria Silva fled Cuba in the 1980s and now runs a food truck in Denver. She spoke with reporter Joe St. George about Obama's visit and what effect she hopes it has on the island.
