Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement after the Treasury Department announced additional targeted sanctions against members of the Maduro regime in Venezuela.

“I once again commend President Trump for his strong stand against the oppressive Maduro regime.  With today's sanctions, additional individuals that participate in the regime's corruption of the electoral process and who engage in censorship are held accountable.  The Maduro regime has failed the people in every conceivable way.  The economy is in shambles, democracy and basic liberties are under assault, and government institutions have been corrupted.  I am proud that the United States continues to stand in solidarity with the people of Venezuela as they struggle to restore freedom to their once prosperous and democratic country.”
