TODAY NICARAGUA (OnPolitics.com) Nicaragua may be a popular spot for eco-tourism, but President Daniel Ortega says Sen. Marco Rubio or Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen aren’t welcome in the Central American country.

But neither Florida Republican seems fazed by Ortega’s decision to ban Rubio and Ros-Lehtinen from traveling to Nicaragua.

“Just like they (U.S. officials) have their lists, we can make our own lists in Latin America of those who shouldn’t enter our country,” Ortega is quoted as saying in The Tico Times.

Rubio and Ros-Lehtinen support sanctions against Venezuela, including a prohibition on travel to the United States by high-ranking government officials and freezing their assets because of their treatment of pro-democracy protesters.

Congress passed the legislation sanctioning Venezuelan officials last week, and President Obama has indicated he would sign the measure. Venezuela and Nicaragua share political and economic interests.

Rubio mocked Ortega on Twitter, while Ros-Lehtinen indicated the Nicaraguan leader is just adding to her resolve to fight for human rights around the globe.
