Florida Democrats Applaud Passing of the Venezuela TPS Act in the U.S House of Representatives

Posted

Today, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement after the passing of the Venezuela TPS Act in the U.S. House of Representatives:

"Today, the Venezuelan community is a step closer to being protected in the United States. Hundreds of Venezuelans have been deported and detained under the Trump Administration's inaction to grant them Temporary Protected Status. We are proud of our Democrats in Congress for their efforts to resolve this crisis and pass the Venezuela TPS Act. Now, it is on Senator Marco Rubio and Rick Scott to stand up for the Venezuelan community and put pressure on Senate Leader McConnell and allow this bill to be heard and voted on in the Senate."
