Chief Val Demings Blasts Marco Rubio for Believing That Venezuelan-Americans Who Disagree With Him Aren’t Real Venezuelans

ORLANDO— Following Marco Rubio’s comment that Venezuelan-Americans who criticize him for his refusal to support TPS recipients are “more Democratic than Venezuelan,” Chief Val Demings released the following statement:

“Marco Rubio is too weak to stand with Venezuelan-Americans who come to Florida in search of freedom and safety after fleeing Maduro’s authoritarian socialist regime. It’s disgraceful that Marco Rubio would insult these Venezuelans in Florida who are stepping up to advocate for their community. I stand with Venezuelan-Americans here in Florida who are proud of where they came from and have contributed immensely to Florida, and I’ll always show up for them in the United States Senate.”
