WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, R-Fort Myers, the ranking Republican of the House Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, said the State Department’s decision to revoke the visas of several Honduran officials, including the vice president of the Supreme Court, was misguided and reckless.

Mack said:

“The State Department is wrong to revoke the diplomatic visas of several Honduran officials. Why is the Obama Administration punishing them for following their constitution and the rule of law? And more importantly, why won’t the Administration recognize Honduras’ legitimate, legal government and support the people of Honduras?

“Having returned from a trip to Honduras this past weekend where I met with President Micheletti, Members of the National Congress, the Supreme Court President, Honduran and American businessmen, and human rights organizations, it is clear that the Honduran people want a peaceful, lawful resolution to the upheaval. They don’t want the United States to cut off aid to their country. They don’t want our country to pull diplomatic visas. And they don’t want us to stand with the “thugocrats” of the Western Hemisphere like Hugo Chavez.

“The Honduran people, in their fight for freedom from the tyranny of Manuel Zelaya, have earned our support and deserve to have the United States stand with them as they seek freedom and democracy for their country.” http://helphondurasnow.com
