WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today issued the following statement after the release of seven Americans from Venezuela:

"I am heartened that seven Americans, including five Texans, will rejoin their families after years of unjust and unacceptable imprisonment by the Maduro regime. This is a day that is long overdue.
