As Borders Tighten, Will Desperate Refugees Soon Face No Escape From Venezuela?
The answer is, unfortunately, yes. Unless something changes with the Venezuelan leadership the economy will continue it’s death spiral, thus forcing more to head for the exits. This will force Colombia’s hand and borders will be closed. I’d tell them the best to do is to rise up now and overthrow the corrupt ruling regime. But that’s impossible on an empty stomach.
If it sounds like Venezuela’s crisis is prompting South Americans to adopt an attitude toward immigration much like President Donald Trump’s…well, it is. A big fear now for Venezuelan migrants is that even next-door Colombia might soon block them for fear of being overrun.
