Trump Holds Campaign Rally in Miami, Doesn't Offer TPS for Venezuelans

Posted

FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement after President Trump's visit to South Florida:

"Trump came to Miami to hold a campaign rally, not to offer real solutions for Venezuelans suffering persecution from the Maduro regime. Trump's Administration alone has the power to offer Venezuelans in the US protection from being deported. Instead, his administration continues closing the door to immigrants who have come to our country looking for a better life.

"While Democrats continue fighting to protect Venezuelans in the US, Trump dares to visit the home of thousands of Venezuelans without bringing solutions to those facing deportation. Words are not enough. We need to protect Venezuelans fleeing the crisis."
