The United States demands that the former Maduro regime release the wrongfully detained “CITGO 6” in Venezuela. These men are suffering serious health conditions and must be released immediately.

Maduro loyalists continue to prevent the families and attorneys of American prisoners from assisting with basic access to food and medicine, without regard for mental health and general well-being of those detained. These affronts to basic dignity will not be ignored.

The safety and welfare of Americans overseas is among the Department of State’s highest priorities. The Department of State continues to press Maduro’s representatives for their assurance of the safety and welfare of Americans wrongfully detained in Venezuela.
