    Venezuela to lose a quarter of its population to migrant floods: OAS

    Get ready for a migrant superflood.

    What's news in Venezuela? Well, the story that there are more talks going on between dictator Nicolás Maduro and the legitimate acting president, Juan Guaidó, this time in Barbados. Yawn. We still don't know what these are about or why there's any sense in talking to Maduro. Nothing good is going to come of this.
    But some far more consequential stories came and went, and they are haunting.

    The Organization of American States reports that a quarter of Venezuelans are projected to flee that socialist hellhole, and the vast flood of refugees will socially destabilize four countries. According to the Caracas Chronicles:
    The United Nations estimates that a little over 4 million Venezuelans have already left the country. According to David Smolansky, the exiled former mayor of El Hatillo municipality in Caracas, and part of the OAS' taskforce on the Venezuelan crisis, almost 70% of these migrants are currently residing in just four countries: Colombia (1,3 million), Peru (850,000), Chile (288,000) and Ecuador (263,000), creating an extremely complex social crisis for the whole region.
    It'll only get worse in the near future, unless a political change takes place in Venezuela. According to the report presented by Smolanky's team in the General Assembly, the organization expects that, by the end of 2020, the number of refugees will double to 8 million people, surpassing the number of Syrians displaced by war and becoming the largest migration crisis in the world.
    It would represent 25% of all Venezuelans, and more than the entire population of countries like Paraguay or El Salvador.
    Most countries, rather than recognize the need to throw Maduro out, will simply try to shut their doors, Caracas Chronicles' Juan Carlos Gabaldón writes. However, it won't stop the migrant flood. What will happen is that they will try to enter by illegal means. Gabaldón tentatively suggests that maybe they will try more dangerous sea crossings to tiny Trinidad and Tobago. Ummmm...
    No, they're going to try to come here. There's little money from the United Nations to help them, and nations that have promised to help Colombia with its refugee flood aren't keeping their promises, as Gabaldón notes.
    Guess who has the most unenforceable immigration laws. Guess who has the most liberal asylum laws. Guess who has a wide open thousand-plus-mile border. Guess who can never be deported once they get across, no matter what they do.
    And in any case, it doesn't matter. They really are refugees. Unlike most denizens of Central America flooding the U.S. border, who come from countries with functioning democracies, growing economies, stable currency, and free trade, they aren't going to have to rely on asylum loopholes, such as renting a kid, to get in. The Venezuelans are bona fide asylum cases fleeing a U.N.-verified death squad regime that has already engaged in 7,000 U.N.-verified extrajudicial killings. It's also tortured, silenced, and starved for political reasons millions more. They put a political litmus test on who gets ration cards and medical care. That's asylum. It won't be just Peru, Chile, Colombia, and Brazil that get destabilized by the doubling of Venezuela's refugee flood...
    Frighteningly, the Venezuelans who manage to get here are going to be the ones with money. There is no money in Venezuela. Well, maybe with one exception: through the drug trade. Some, as a result of this ugly picture, already are joining the Colombian guerrillas, as I noted from Francisco Toro's essay the other day here. What's likely is that Venezuelans seeking to get here will hook up with the cartels in exchange for passage, get inside as refugees, and then pay the piper, effectively spreading the influence of the drug trade across the states. Desperate people do desperate things. The ones who come here may not be the most sympathetic Venezuelans the way the ones fleeing for their lives on foot across the Colombian or Brazilian border are. In fact, even Brazil has seen local conflicts with the Venezuelan migrant surge based on the criminals among them.
    Unvetted migrants even with real reasons for fleeing are always a recipe for trouble.
    And here we are, with Democrats refusing to do anything to halt the border flood, and every state in the Americas reluctant to hose the socialist hellhole out. It's like standing in the drain tunnel, waiting for the flood.

    U.S. returns first group of asylum seekers to Mexico's Nuevo Laredo to wait out application process | The Japan Times

    U.S. returns first group of asylum seekers to Mexico's Nuevo Laredo to wait out application process

    NUEVO LAREDO, MEXICO - The so-called Remain in Mexico program for U.S. asylum seekers expanded to another Mexican border city Tuesday with the arrival of a first group of migrants to Nuevo Laredo.
    The 10 migrants had crossed the border to seek U.S. asylum Monday and will now have to wait in Mexico as their applications are processed.
    Lucia Ascencio of Venezuela had waited for three months in Nuevo Laredo with her husband and two young sons just for the chance to make her asylum petition in Laredo, Texas. She was stunned by her return to Mexico as they walked from the bridge carrying plastic bags containing a bottle of water, a bottle of juice and an orange.
    “We hadn’t thought that they were going to send us back,” she said. Her family was given a date in September to return for the next step in their process.
    A spokeswoman with Mexico’s immigration agency confirmed that the first group of 10 returned Tuesday.
    The U.S. program, known formally as the Migrant Protection Protocols, acts as a deterrent for applicants who previously were released into the U.S. with notices to appear in court.
    The program was already operating in the Mexican border cities of Tijuana, Mexicali and Ciudad Juarez. More than 18,000 mostly Central American migrants had been returned to those cities through the first week in July, according Mexican officials.
    Nuevo Laredo is in Tamaulipas state, which the U.S. State Department warns Americans not to visit due to kidnappings and other crimes.
    The program’s expansion to Tamaulipas was announced after the U.S. and Mexico reached an agreement to avert threatened tariffs on Mexican exports last month.
    The state is notorious for violent drug cartels that have controlled its border cities. But its long shared border with Texas also includes the busiest sector for U.S. Border Patrol’s migrant apprehensions.
    Migrant shelters in cities along Mexico’s northern border have been swamped for months. Like Ascencio, migrants who want to apply for U.S. asylum wait for months to get the opportunity. The Remain in Mexico cities are even more affected because the migrants are sent back to wait for a process that could last more than a year.
    At the Casa AMAR migrant shelter in Nuevo Laredo, director Aaron Mendez said there was already a “humanitarian crisis” that the shelter lacked the resources to deal with.
    “If they could have 50 shelters here in the city it still wouldn’t be enough,” Mendez said. Authorities had originally said 150 to 200 migrants could be returned to Nuevo Laredo daily.
    On Monday, Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said that 327 migrants awaiting U.S. asylum hearings had found jobs in northern Mexico and that companies had offered 3,700 positions.
    The federal government has pledged to assist border cities in accommodating the migrants, but details have been few and local shelters complain that the new government of President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has actually cut funding that they had received to support migrants. Ebrard said they had arranged with 16 shelters to provide places for migrants to stay, but that would only meet a fraction of the need.
    Several civil rights organizations in the U.S. have sued the government over the Migrant Protection Protocols. Many migrants say they fear that staying in some Mexican border cities could jeopardize their personal safety.
