                                Notice of November 25, 2019
                
                Continuation of the National Emergency With
                                Respect to the Situation in Nicaragua
                                On November 27, 2018, by Executive Order 13851, I
                                declared a national emergency pursuant to the
                                International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C.
                                1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary
                                threat to the national security and foreign policy of
                                the United States constituted by the situation in
                                Nicaragua.
                                The situation in Nicaragua, including the violent
                                response by the Government of Nicaragua to the protests
                                that began on April 18, 2018, and the Ortega regime's
                                systematic dismantling and undermining of democratic
                                institutions and the rule of law, its use of
                                indiscriminate violence and repressive tactics against
                                civilians, as well as its corruption leading to the
                                destabilization of Nicaragua's economy, continues to
                                pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the
                                national security and foreign policy of the United
                                States. For this reason, the national emergency
                                declared on November 27, 2018, must continue in effect
                                beyond November 27, 2019. Therefore, in accordance with
                                section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50
                                U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the
                                national emergency declared in Executive Order 13851
                                with respect to the situation in Nicaragua.
                                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register
                                and transmitted to the Congress.
