Illegal Venezuelans in Barranquilla
« on: December 25, 2017, 01:08:41 AM »
  I haven't been to Barranquilla since 2011 and was wondering if anyone knows how the situation currently is with illegal Venezuelan immigrants in Barranquilla?


 I know from youtube videos they are everywhere now in Colombia including even cities like Medellin which are much farther away from Venezuela.   


Do you think if they are criminals are they are more likely going to be living in the South and Centro parts of Barranquilla? 


I just wonder how Barranquilla police are dealing with them.


If they commit crimes will they be deported back to Venezuela or does Colombia not really care?

Desperate situation and some S. American nations are not allowing Venezuelans entry. Many Venezuelans  are broke, starving and desperate. Last year we went to a few islands off the Venezuelan coast and the islanders were very upset with increased crime and the ATMs weren't even allowed to exchange for USD's, as with Venezuela's triple digit inflation, IF they have money, they want to exchange it into the most viable, stable currency.

There's a quite a bit on-line on this, perhaps not Baranquilla specific, but certainly re Colombia, which has been more welcoming than most other surrounding nations.

But hey, Venezuelans or not, you just need to be careful everywhere nowadays. Besides,  there, you may not be able to physically identify them from the locals anyhow....

Elex, I posted my own observations from being literally within eye sight of Venezuela and  from conversations with people from there, including natives to the area, Venezuans, Colombians, all who deal with, who live with this situation everyday. I have touched upon this subject here previously.

The internet link was a basic way of indicating there's more on the subject there.

While I sincerely wish you a merry Christmas and a better new year, between your responses to my recent posts, including your rather typical misogynistic postings, (an attitude even women in 3rd world nations can pick up on) apparently you're not quite there yet.

Wishing you the best still,

Rob
