Rubio, of Cuban origin, and Scott considered that López Obrador breached international commitments on transnational organized crime by not arresting Maduro when he attended the summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), held in Mexico City on September 18 .
“Maduro should have been extradited to the United States” for drug trafficking
They also recalled that on March 26, 2020, the US Justice Department charged Maduro with “narco-terrorism” and drug trafficking to the United States and stressed that there is “evidence” that he supervised the transit of narcotics through Mexico.
