Does Venezuelan Mass Migration Pose a Major Threat to American Security?

Published

on

José Gustavo Arocha a research fellow for the Center for a Secure Free Society warns about how mass migration from Venezuela could undermine American security interests in the Western hemisphere.

Arocha notes how there are “ongoing protests and instability in Haiti, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, Honduras and, lately, Chile, a stable country that generally tops the rankings in economic freedom.”

One of Venezuela’s most powerful men, Diosdado Cabello, who is currently sanctioned by the U.S. government for narco-trafficking, recently stated that “What is happening in Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Argentina [and] Honduras is a gentle Bolivarian breeze, and a hurricane is coming,” referring to the role Venezuela has played in spreading its revolutionary vision to other countries in the region.

Arocha argues that the “regional chaos is exacerbated by Venezuela’s mass migration, which beyond a humanitarian crisis poses a dangerous threat to the Western Hemisphere because it’s weaponized by the Maduro regime.”

The majority of the 4.3 million Venezuelans, who have left the country due to its economic collapse and rampant crime, have stayed within the region. Arocha details this:

An estimated 1.4 million Venezuelans have settled in Colombia; nearly 860,000 in Peru; 288,000 in Chile; 330,000 in Ecuador; 130,000 in Argentina; and 178,000 in Brazil. About 300,000 Venezuelans are in the United States and more than 255,000 in Spain.

The research fellow argues that a “small percentage of these Venezuelan migrants appear to be undercover subversive agents embedded by the Maduro regime and his regional and extra-regional allies.”

Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno blamed Venezuela for the protests that have taken place in his country during the last month. Julio Borges, Venezuelan Interim President Juan Guaidó’s commissioner for Foreign Relations, confirmed that 41 of the 57 foreigners arrested during Ecuador’s protests in October were Venezuelan nationals.

Kelly M. Greenhill, a Harvard researcher, argues that mass migration can be used as a weapon to destabilize countries.

In Arocha’s view, “Venezuela has become what some have called a “Mafia state” with organized crime and terrorist groups controlling vast swaths of Venezuelan territory through transnational illicit networks involved in drug trafficking, money laundering, illegal mining, kidnapping, etc. that spills across borders.”

He then highlights how the “Center for a Secure Free Society, a national security think tank based in Washington, has gone a step further and labeled Venezuela a “parallel state” that combines a “criminalized state” with a revolutionary framework that draws its source of support from external state actors: Russia, Iran and China, or the VRIC.”

The Organization of American States estimates that Venezuela’s socialist collapse could “push refugee outflows to as high as 8.2 million next year.”

Arocha concludes that “The more refugees that flow out of Venezuela, the easier it is for these transnational and transregional threat networks to spread north, south, east and west.”

This case is another demonstration of why the U.S. must beef up its immigration policies and put the clamps on all refugee programs.

Such mass migration flows pose major threats to public safety, national security, and even ideological integrity once refugees from socialist countries are put on the path towards naturalization.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE

She’s citing Biden family corruption.

Published

on

Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.

Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.

Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.

Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.

Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.

Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.

The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
