House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) spent some of the congressional recess in South America, which included visiting the Colombia-Venezuela border, where he expressed support for the Venezuelan people and condemned president Nicolas Maduro as he clings to power and citizens suffer.
Several other lawmakers joined the congressional delegation, including Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), and Reps. Mac Thornberry (R-TX), Mike Rogers (R-AL), Steve Womack (R-AR), Peter Welch (D-VT), David Joyce (R-OH), Mike Johnson (R-LA), and Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA).
‘To all the people in Venezuela who love liberty and want freedom, we support you,’” reported the Californian.
“The United States supports Colombia’s efforts to move forward,” McCarthy said in a press release about the trip.
“Our visit is a symbol of the enduring partnership between the United States and Argentina,” McCarthy said in a statement.
