1 BACKGROUND

I. THE CURRENT SITUATION IN VENEZUELA

On September 16 2019, before the United Nations Human Rights Council, the independent fact-finding mission issued its report on the human rights situation in Venezuela, stating that:

 

  1. The Mission documented violations amid the state’s increasingly violent response to massive opposition protesters, especially in 2014, 2017 and 2019. These include the killing of more than 150 protesters, shot with less lethal firearms and ammunition, as well as torture and other wrong doings; treatment in detention, including beatings and humiliations, sexual and gender-based violence and mock executions.
  2. The Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN) targeted political dissidents, human rights activists, and others believed to be against the government. The General Directorate of Military Counterintelligence (DGCIM) targeted military personnel and associated civilians. Former Navy Captain Rafael Acosta Arévalo died after being tortured in the custody of the DGCIM, and at least two people died in the custody of the SEBIN.

  3. From 2015 to 2017, People’s Liberation Operations (OLP), supposedly established to combat crime, which resulted in arbitrary detentions and extrajudicial executions. Civilians died after the implementation of a military plan. An operation in the Barlovento subregion of Miranda state in mid-October 2016 ended in a massacre after soldiers arbitrarily detained 35 men, some of whom they disappeared and tortured.

  4. In addition, the National Survey of Living Conditions 2019-2020 (ENCOVI, for the National Survey of Living Conditions) shows that poverty levels in Venezuela skyrocketed during 2019, officially making it the poorest country in Latin America and the Caribbean. The study also calculated multidimensional poverty by considering various other factors and income, such as access to education and public services. According to these measures, 64.8 percent of households in Venezuela live in poverty. In 2018, the report says, those numbers were 13 percent lower, illustrating how much more Maduro has sunk the Venezuelan economy in the past year.

 

II. VENEZUELAN REFUGEE CRISIS

According to the United Nations Refugee Agency:

1.    By April 2021, according to the United Nations R4V Joint Monitoring and Response Platform, -UNHCR- and -OIM-, the sum of Venezuelan migrants, refugees and asylum seekers reported by the host government is more than 5.6 million, and 4.6 million are in the region.

2.     Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans remain without documentation or permission to stay in nearby countries regularly and without guaranteed access to fundamental rights. This makes them particularly vulnerable to labor and sexual exploitation, trafficking, violence, discrimination and xenophobia.

III. THE USURPATING GOVERNMENT WELCOMES ARMED GROUPS OUT OF THE LAW:

Extremist Groups: Most of today’s discussions among experts, politicians and the media relate to the Sunni Jihadist/Salafist type of terrorism, as it is considered the most important global threat. Reports from the United States Department of State denounce that the Nicolás Maduro regime fosters a “permissive environment” for terrorist groups in Venezuela. According to State Department investigations, the development of criminal groups facilitates corruption by directly involving officials of the Venezuelan Armed Forces.

The State Department also affirmed that it is also worrisome that the reports that indicate the existence of cooperation between the FARC and ELN dissidents are in the areas of road and border control, in the subsidized distribution of food, in the recruitment and forced displacement of vulnerable indigenous communities and in the trafficking of narcotics and illegal gold.

The report denounces the «growing presence and territorial control of the ELN» in Venezuela, and also points out that in the country «confrontations between the ELN, other Colombian and Venezuelan illegal armed groups and the Venezuelan government forces increased».

It is noteworthy that the Chávez and Maduro regimes have also supported the operations of the Iranians and the Islamic Resistance Movement of Lebanon (Hezbollah). Hezbollah, whose translation would be “The Party of God”, is an organization that was born in Lebanon in 1982 after the Israeli occupation, which has a political and an armed wing, and works with the support of Iran and the Syrian Government of Bashar Al Assad, current allies and friends of the Madurista regime.

According to Pew Research Center:

IV. VENEZUELANS IN THE UNITED STATES:

An estimated 421,000 Hispanics of Venezuelan origin resided in the United States in 2017, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. Venezuelans in this statistical profile self-identify as Hispanic of Venezuelan origin; this includes immigrants from Venezuela and those who trace their family ancestry to Venezuela.

Venezuelans are the thirteenth largest population of Hispanic origin living in the United States, representing less than 1% of the US Hispanic population in 2017. Since 2000, the population of Venezuelan origin has increased 352%, from 93,000 to 421,000 during the period. At the same time, foreign-born Venezuelans living in the US grew by 313%, from 75,000 in 2000 to 309,000 in 2017. By comparison, Mexicans, the largest group of Hispanic origin in the country, made up 36.6 million or 62% of the Hispanic population in 2017.

Among Venezuelans who are 25 and older, 52% of those born in the United States have a bachelor’s or higher degree.
