From the opening statement of Albio Sires: "This hearing titled Made by Maduro: The Humanitarian Crisis in Venezuela and U.S. Policy Responses will focus on the political, economic, and human rights crisis in Venezuela, and ways for the international community to support the Venezuelan people. [...] Today the Venezuelan people are suffering under a humanitarian crisis caused by authoritarian leader Nicolas Maduro. Since Maduro came to power in 2013, he has consistently repressed human rights. Under his command, security forces have arbitrarily detained and abused thousands of protesters, committed acts of torture and forced disappearances, and carried out hundreds of brutal killings, all with the single goal of eliminating any and all opposition."
