I will admit, I may have some bias on this subject, as my father and by extension, half my family, are Venezuelan. I also held Venezuelan citizenship in the past, though I am not certain if that still remains true today (it's a bit iffy).

Regardless, my family in Venezuela has suffered under the ever increasingly oppressive and erratic government in Venezuela and several have tried to claim asylum due to that situation. This bill, should it become law, will give them and many others a degree of hope and refuge in the United States, and will help increase support for America among ex-pats and refugees who are coming to escape the harsh conditions in Venezuela.
