Another Miami member of Congress speaks about Venezuela on House floor


On Thursday, it was Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart's turn to support protesters on the streets of Venezuela from the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Miami Republican said the U.S. should demand that the Organization of American States convene a special meeting. Panama made that request earlier this week. The meeting was called but then put off.

"I urge the international community to aggressively express their commitment to the basic freedoms that are under assault in Venezuela," Diaz-Balart said.

Earlier this week, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Miami, both Republicans, also used their floor time to draw attention to the Venezuelan unrest.

I was surprised to learn that we even had representation in congress. These people are seen and heard from so little and have such few accomplishments, most voters don't even know they exist.
