Venezuela Consulate In Houston Shut Down

The U.S. State Department has revoked the visas and diplomatic privileges of a dozen Venezuelan consular officials after a two-month dispute over the Venezuelan government's plans to relocate its Houston office.

Employees with the consulate general in Houston were given until Sunday to leave the country, or they will become illegal immigrants, a State Department official confirmed Friday. The consular office on Fountain View Drive was locked on Friday, with a notice taped in the window saying it will remain closed until further notice for reasons "beyond our control."

It takes a bug to hit a windsheild but it takes guts to stick
