U.S. President Barack Obama said Thursday he is immediately ending the so-called “wet foot, dry foot” policy that let any Cuban who steps foot on U.S. soil remain in the United States without a visa.

Obama said in a statement that the 20-year-old policy was designed for a “different era.”

“By taking this step, we are treating Cuban migrants the same way we treat migrants from other countries,” he said. “We will continue to welcome Cubans as we welcome immigrants from other nations, consistent with our laws.”

Obama called it an important step in normalizing relations with Cuba.
