Activist: Hinds' statement can bring hate upon Venezuelans
Speaking at a Rotary Club of Port-of-Spain luncheon Tuesday, Hinds said 70,000 Venezuelans were in T&T, significantly higher than the 16,000 registered under the Government amnesty programme in 2019. Hinds said the migrants were entering the country with "usual cultures" and that the Ministry of National Security saw elements of antisocial and other behaviours. South Western Division police told Guardian Media that there was a heightened awareness of Venezuelan migrants entering T&T illegally during COVID-19 when the borders were closed to control transmission. Despite police moving focus to more violent crimes, the illegal migration never stopped as traffickers used numerous rivers and cut new trails in forests along the South Coast.
