The embattled President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro ended diplomatic relations with the US, and told US diplomats to leave the country within 72 hours. This was in response to President Trump’s official recognition of the opposition leader, Juan Guaido, as the legitimate President of Venezuela. The US has refused to withdraw its diplomats because it does not recognize Maduro as the leader of Venezuela. Maduro accused the US of attempting a coup against his regime in order to install a puppet government. Hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Caracas calling for an end to Maduro’s government because it has led the country into hunger and shortages. In Caracas, protesters destroyed a statue of Hugo Chavez, Maduro’s predecessor.

The only Latin American countries that still back Maduro are longstanding leftist allies Bolivia and Cuba. More than three-million people have left Venezuela since the crisis began. The Brookings Institute forecasts that the number of Venezuelan refugees will grow to eight-million people!

Earlier this month, Democrat Representative Darren Soto from Florida introduced HR 549 which would permit nationals of Venezuela to have protected status as immigrants to America. If passed. it would prompt waves of migrants from Venezuela into the US, and there is no doubt that, just like immigrants from other countries in crisis, many of them would not be from the law-abiding segment of society. -GEG

Let them fix their own problems. If they lack the means to do it, let that be their fate. We have a fate that is different and which is not in Venezuela.
