                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.


                    (Presidential Sig.)
                THE WHITE HOUSE,
                    November 25, 2019.
