This is the March 3, 2021 hearing on "Way Forward for Venezuela: The Humanitarian, Diplomatic, and National Security Challenges Facing the Biden Administration," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Civilian Security, Migration and International Economic Policy of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Albio Sires: "I called today's hearing because I want to begin this Congress where we began last year, by shining a spotlight on the crisis in Venezuela. Two years ago, I chaired a hearing entitled, ''Made by Maduro,'' where we discussed the humanitarian crisis caused by Venezuela's dictator, Nicolas Maduro. Unfortunately, while international attention seems to be shifting away from Venezuela, the crisis in the country has only deepened over the last 3 years. A report issued by the United Nations last September confirmed that Maduro's regime has committed crimes against humanity. Over 90 percent of Venezuelans are living in poverty, suffering under conditions made worse by the pandemic. Over five and a half million Venezuelans have been forced to flee their homes." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Feliciano Reyna, Cynthia Arnson, Brian Fonesca, and Ryan C. Berg.
