Fact Sheet

While the illegitimate former Maduro regime continues to deny the scale of the crisis - as well as its role in causing it - independent international organizations report dire, irrefutable findings from inside Venezuela. The Maduro regime's corruption and mismanagement have led to the destruction of Venezuelan social services and crumbling public infrastructure, contributing to the deepening humanitarian crisis. The United States is supporting our Hemispheric partners in addressing the needs of Venezuelans who have fled to the region, and stands ready to provide assistance inside Venezuela.

Today, on the World Day against Trafficking in Persons, we are reminded that trafficking in persons, also known as modern slavery, is a crucial development challenge, and an abuse of human rights that affects an estimated 25 million people globally. Human trafficking represents a threat to international peace and security. It undermines the rule of law, robs millions of their dignity and freedom, enriches transnational criminals and terrorists, and threatens public safety and national security everywhere. Today, we salute the courage of those who devote their lives to combat modern slavery, including survivors, and pledge our support to their cause.
