Democrat senator Bob Menéndez and Republican Senator Marco Rubio have presented today a resolution before US legislative upper house demanding sanctions against Venezuela to punish “the violent repression suffered by pacific protesters”.

“The United States should condemn Venezuela’s government for violently suppressing protests, and it should slap individual sanctions on mid and top-level officials associated with the regime in Caracas”, the resolution states.

“We’re asking the administration to study and consider putting in place strong individual sanctions against individuals in the Venezuelan government who hold assets, property and travel visas to the US”.

“Human rights violators should not be welcomed in the US”, the resolution concludes.
