Congress members protest St. Department certification of Honduras on human rights

Story: Rep. José Serrano and 16 others sent a letter to the State Department protesting certification of the human rights conditions on the 2016 aid, and asking that it be revoked.
 
"We ask that you immediately revoke the certification of the 50 percent of funds allocated under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 that are subject to compliance with human rights conditions. More broadly, we ask that you rethink U.S. support for a government with such a long, established track record of human rights violations and concerted disrespect for the rule of law."

The full letter is attached.
