Peru is stepping up its border security and requirements for asylum after 15,000 Venezuelan refugees crossed its border over the weekend.
As the situation in the failed socialist state of Venezuela continues to decline, refugees from the nation are overwhelming other South American countries, with some 15,000 Venezuelans crossing the border in the last few days.
In response to the massive number of migrants, Peru will now require Venezuelans seeking entrance into the country to have a valid ID, passport, and visa to enter the country legally. According to Global Security, the country previously only required a form of valid ID for entry.
The Peruvian authorities have issued a statement that same day explaining that, due to this massive influx of refugees and migrants, a special contingency plan would be put in place, and Venezuelan refugees are now required to have a passport and a visa in order to enter the country. Until now, each Venezuelan was asked only for a basic document, such as an ID or an Andean Card to be allowed entry into Peru.
The total number of Venezuelan refugees and migrants in the country now stands at about 800,000. In total, to date, Peru has received over 280,000 asylum applications by Venezuelan citizens and given temporary residence permits to over 390,000.
The United Nations is sending aid to the border between Ecuador and Peru, as the majority of immigrants appear to be crossing through Ecuador and Colombia to gain entrance to the South American country. Some travel for as many as 40 days, by foot, to migrate to Peru.
Strangely, there appear to be no reports of the Peruvian government being called “racist” or “xenophobic” for its desire to curtail the mass migration from Venezuela.
Biden Executive Order Terminates Construction of New Border Wall
President Joe Biden signed an executive order halting the construction of new border wall on the southern border in one of his first actions as President.
The order terminates an emergency proclamation that allowed discretion to divert federal funding towards wall construction.
“The proclamation will direct an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow a close review of the legal basis for the funding, as well as the contract methods being used, and it will determine the best ways to redirect funds that were diverted by the Trump administration to fund wall construction,” said Biden’s National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.
The termination of wall construction comes as a Central American caravan numbering in the thousands travels through Honduras and Guatemala, with the intention of securing immigration amnesty from President Biden. The leaders of the caravan have cited Biden’s left-wing immigration promises as the imperative for its formation, demanding he honor what they see as promises of admittance.
Drug-cartel human smugglers are already chomping at the bit at the idea of resuming illegal immigration smuggling en masse during Biden’s presidency, assured that they’ll have free reign to infiltrate America’s borders in a manner akin to the state of affairs under previous establishment Presidents.
Biden also signed Trump’s executive order overturning a travel ban from several high-risk nations. Another executive order re-enrolls the United States into the globalist Paris Climate Accords, which mandates strict carbon emissions curbs on the United States without imposing similar requirements on China.
