Wasserman Schultz, Salazar Lead Effort to Block Forced Sale of Venezuelan Assets Held by Pro-Democracy Opposition

| Posted in Press Releases

The economic catastrophe inflicted on Venezuela by the brutal Maduro regime must not be exploited by multinational financiers. The U.S. must stand strong against attempts to ransack vital economic assets that belong to the Venezuelan people and promise to serve as the engine for Venezuela’s recovery once democracy is restored.

Wasserman Schultz: GOP Bill Threatened to Defund U.S. Military, Endanger Israel Security

| Posted in Press Releases

Today’s vote was a partisan stunt, which Republicans hoped would paper over their failure to provide aid to Israel for six months.

The President should clarify his stance publicly and the U.S. and Israel should resolve this miscommunication privately.

Venezuelans deserve real democracy, and I’m proud that President Biden took strong action today to help deliver it. I commend President Biden's decision to fully enforce the terms of the Barbados Agreement by snapping back sanctions on the Maduro dictatorship's illicit oil profits. I know the people I represent appreciate the Administration's commitment to amplify the voices of Venezuelan Americans who demand democracy.
