Miami, Fla— Today, the Biden Administration granted Temporary Protected Status to the hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans living in America who have fled a brutal and repressive regime in their home country in search of a better life.
In celebration of this important decision, Florida Democratic Party Chair Manny Diaz released the following statement.
“Extending Temporary Protected Status to Venezuelans in the United States is a much needed step in the right direction by the Biden Administration. President Trump and his Republican allies loved to pay lip service to the Venezuelan community, but it is President Biden who has actually taken the necessary steps to help freedom seeking Venezuelans attain protected legal status here in the United States.
“By granting TPS to Venezuelans in Florida, and those all across the country, who have fled a brutal and oppressive regime in their home country in search of freedom, President Biden and the Democratic Party are living up to a key campaign promise and showing the compassionate moral leadership that this country so desperately needs. Thank you, President Biden.”
