“It’s incredibly emotional to receive this recognition from South Florida’s Venezuelan community because it is a reminder of who and what we’re fighting for every day in Congress,” said Mucarsel-Powell. “Our brothers and sisters in Venezuela have been suffering under Maduro’s brutal narco-regime, desperately trying to find even the most basic necessities, like food, water, and medicine, and simultaneously trying to restore freedom and democracy to Venezuela. This is the exact situation TPS was designed for. We could not make as much progress as we have in Congress without the support from the Venezuelan community in Florida.”
