Venezuelan-raised actress Maria Conchita Alonso says her country is an economic disaster under President Nicolas Maduro, who she thinks may not even have the authority to run the country.

"Can you imagine? People can't find toilet paper. And they can't find paper also to write . . . newspapers, magazines, whatever," Alonso told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

She says Maduro has not proven he was even born in Venezuela, a requirement for the nation's commander-in-chief.

"Everybody thinks he's born in Colombia. But even if he would have been born in Colombia, he has double nationality," she said.

Story continues below the video.



"In Venezuela, you can't be president with double nationalities. So, he's illegal, but now he has all the power."

Her comments came as Maduro, in an ongoing effort to regulate prices and profit margins, had the military seize three electronics store chains.

Alonso, whose films include "The Lords of Salem" and "Dark Moon Rising," thinks Venezuela, in reality, is under the control of Cuban President Raul Castro, and warns the United States not to establish relations with Cuba.

"It's a completely huge mistake because Cuba is not a democratic island. Cuba has broken the human rights. There are all of these people that are political prisoners over there just because they're against the regime," Alonso said.

"If I was [President Barack] Obama, I would say, first, let all those political prisoners out and allow the elections."
