I just saw in Twitter that the US Embassy was once again going to start issuing visas after a substantial suspension, and the people there has rejoiced. I have been remiss in pointing out that Venezuelans are fleeing the country because simply they cannot find food or medicines for themselves and their families. Those who were able to go somewhere with legal paperwork such as the US, Spain , Portugal or Italy have done so long ago and had to have some sort of legal connection with the host country, mostly via relatives.
The majority of Venezuelans do not have such connections and those countries are getting sour about getting more immigrants with a pot to piss on. Not being from the protected class (aloha snackbar) means they can be ignored, abused and told to go fuck themselves by the authorities and populace alike.) Some have returned to Venezuela because they could not cope with it, only to g=regret it immediately. Yes, they are kinda dumb.
Colombia, due to being neighbor, was the first country to receive a flood of “refugees” looking for food and a job. The welcome mat has already been worn off, specially when the Venezuelan criminal element has also migrated. Some have gone places north but mostly have migrated deep to South America and right now the country of choice is Chile who has a good economy and is still welcoming Venezuelans if for nothing for Venezuela being a safe refuge for many Chileans during the Pinochet regime. You will find plans and strategies being discussed in Social Media on how to get to Chile via bus. We are talking about a trip from Caracas to Santiago of 97 hour and 4,500 mile ordeal.
And in all the misery, all the suffering and all the planing to leave the homeland, take a guess which country is never discussed as a destination point to seek a better life:
After Michael Moore taught us that Cuba is a frigging paradise with plenty food and great and free medical services, you’d reckon Venezuelan people would be stealing boats and building rafts to reach its shores.
Maybe Venezuelan are just racist.
