Washington, D.C.—Today, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), the senior Republican in the United States Senate, issued the following statement praising President Trump’s call to release Josh Holt from prison in Venezuela:

After a year of fighting to secure Josh’s freedom, I’m grateful to have an ally in President Trump, who has continued our calls for Josh’s immediate release on humanitarian grounds. Over the last few months, I’ve had the opportunity to discuss Josh’s case with the President, his cabinet, and several members of the Holt family. I’m deeply grateful for their commitment to justice and their willingness to help an innocent Utahn and his wife return home.
