Because of the human rights abuses, Venezuela has been under USA sanctions. Some of these sanctions have been eased up because we want their oil. The Venezuelan people are still being abused and nothing has changed.
Our administration a few weeks ago decided to keep the Venezuelan immigrants in Mexico, while others are allowed in.
One of the most abused people on the planet are allowed to be further abused so that we can buy oil.

and you will find extrajudicial executions.
The police will use excessive force with impunity.
