Fears of Venezuelan migration crisis in Trinidad
Published on July 13, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version

By Caribbean News Now

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad -- In the face of growing political unrest in Venezuela, a large number of Venezuelan immigrants living in Trinidad are concerned that the continued violence may spill-over into Trinidad and result in an immigration crisis.

Approximately 15,000 Venezuelans are residing there and as the social upheaval continues in Caracas and other major cities, this figure is expected to grow before the end of the year, Trinidad Newsday reported.

Meanwhile, the secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, held a telephone conversation on Wednesday afternoon with recently released opposition leader Leopoldo López.

During the conversation, the two agreed on the need to continue working for the return of democracy to Venezuela and the recovery of the rights of the Venezuelan people.

They also emphasized the urgent need for the regime to cease repression, to publish a comprehensive electoral calendar, open a humanitarian channel to meet the needs of the people of the country, completely restore the powers of the National Assembly and release all political prisoners, including a complete release for López himself.
