Mayor Levine Cava praises Biden’s decision to reimpose sanctions on Venezuela


Miami, Florida – Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava has expressed strong support for the Biden administration’s recent decision to reimpose sanctions on Venezuela’s oil industry. This decision was made in response to violations by the Maduro regime, which compromised the integrity of upcoming elections in Venezuela.

Strong Response to Election Interference

In her statement, Mayor Levine Cava praised the United States’ quick action, emphasizing its significance in upholding democratic values. “Today’s actions to reimpose sanctions on Venezuela is welcomed, as it sends a clear message that the disqualification of presidential candidate Maria Corina Machado by the Maduro regime is a blatant attack on the electoral process and undermines our democratic values,” she said.
