Another blow to Chavismo: Chávez's daughter would be deported

"Deport María Gabriela Chávez and send her back to Venezuela", that is the name of the petition created last March 3 by 'JP' , and in which it is argued that "according to the position of the United States on Venezuela and their decision not to recognize the Maduro regime, the Venezuelan people respectfully request the deportation of María Gabriela Chávez, daughter of Hugo Chávez and permanent delegate of Maduro at the UN. Ms. Chávez has openly criticized the democracy and culture of the United States while on American soil. She represents a narco regime and a terrorist state. In addition, despite being in New York on public tasks, she has not attended meetings of the UN General Council on 3 of the last 5 occasions. Finally, she is cataloged as a known recipient of large sums of money resulting from systematic corruption in Venezuela and, therefore, should be investigated by OFAC".
