Rep. Shalala says Republicans consistently let Venezuelans down


Last week, after much contention, the House passed a bipartisan TPS bill, granting Temporary Protected Status for Venezuelans.

The bill, sponsored by Florida Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R) and Florida Rep. Darren Soto (D) is considered the most significant legislative action that has been taken to respond to Venezuela’s ongoing humanitarian crisis.

The bill, now in the U.S. Senate, has been blocked by Senate Republicans.
