Press Release

DORAL – Today, Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) joined Vice President Michael Pence, Governor Ron DeSantis, Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, and Venezuelan Ambassador to the United States Carlos Vecchio at a rally in support of the Venezuelan people at Iglesia Doral Jesus Worship Center.

“Now is a pivotal time when we must support the courageous Venezuelan people as they seek to restore freedom and democracy in Venezuela. I was honored to join so many friends and colleagues today to demand liberation of political prisoners, restoration of democracy, and an end to corruption. The Trump administration has shown bold leadership by intensifying pressure on the Maduro regime, and supporting the new, democratically elected interim President. In the last two years, the United States has continued to stand up against the "Troika of Tyranny" and in support of freedom-seeking people who suffer in the grip of totalitarianism.

“I am troubled by reports of increased repression in these days of Maduro’s waning influence. These human rights abuses are being documented, and those responsible for human rights abuses will be held accountable for their crimes. It is not too late for those in league with the regime to switch to the right side and stop joining in the oppression of the Venezuelan people.”
