Under what circumstances should a US Green Card holder consider travel to Cuba?

Asked on Mar 17th, 2019 on Immigration - California
More details to this question:
I'm looking to travel to Cuba along with some friends / colleagues who are giving a research presentation, but I am NOT giving any presentations, nor have I been officially invited to the conference. Per the U.S. Embassy in Cuba's official website, there are 12 approved (non-illegal) categories for travel to Cuba. I'd be looking to travel under the "Professional research and professional meetings" or "Supporting Cuban people" category. However I'm concerned that even though I may meet the legal requirements, there is always a risk of being scrutinized during my Naturalization process. My questions are (1) how significant is the risk of me traveling and (2) are there anythings I can do to help minimize jeopardizing my Naturalization process?

If you meet the legal qualification under one of the 12 categories, you can travel to Cuba, but the trip may certainly be scrutinized as part of a naturalization application. You should keep records of your trip to Cuba relating to what you did when you were in the country in case you are questioned.
