Mack to Lead Congressional Trip to Honduras This Weekend

WASHINGTON – Congressman Connie Mack (FL-14), the Ranking Republican of the House Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, will travel to Honduras on Saturday and Sunday to meet with key leaders and officials and discuss the ongoing crisis in the country.

Mack said:

“I am looking forward to getting on the ground in Honduras to hear directly from members of the Honduran government about the political situation in the country, as well as the progress of the ongoing talks in Costa Rica.

“It’s important to remember that Manuel Zelaya’s removal was not a military coup. The Honduran Supreme Court, attorney general, Congress and the Honduran people were right to confront Zelaya as he usurped the law and gutted their constitution.

“During this time of upheaval, the people of Honduras deserve to know that the United States and other freedom-loving nations across the globe stand with them and support a peaceful and legal resolution. I look forward to reaching out to them during this trip.”

Mack is the first Member of Congress to travel to Honduras since Zelaya’s removal. He tentatively plans to meet with members of all branches of the Honduran government while he is in the country. He will be available for media interviews before, during and after his trip.
