Florida Congresswoman’s bill assists Venezuelan humanitarian efforts


Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell is championing the passage of legislation to increase Humanitarian Assistance to the Venezuelan people.

At a time when tensions are rising in the country because of insufficient food, medicine and a communist regime that oppresses its people by stripping them of their basic human rights, lawmakers have been actively working to not only support the people of Venezuela but to also support Juan Guaidó, who many have acknowledged as the interim-President of the country.

The passage of the legislation would provide humanitarian assistance to the Venezuelan people, which includes Venezuelan migrants and refugees in the Americas. In addition, the legislation would also require the Trump administration to develop a strategy for directing humanitarian aid to the Venezuelan people, and a condemnation of Venezuela’s security forces blocking and diverting humanitarian aid.
