Trinidad Deports Venezuelan Invaders, Denies they Need “Asylum”

The black Caribbean island state of Trinidad and Tobago has deported 82 Venezuelan invaders pretending to be refugees back home after refusing to even consider their patently bogus claims of “asylum”—contrary to many white nations which have foolishly believed such nonsense.

A report in the Trinidad and Tobago Guardian newspaper revealed that the government simply threw the invaders on an airplane and flew them back to Caracas even while meddling lawyers were still trying to get permission for them to stay.

According to that report, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) “raised the issue with the [government] Immigration Division but its concerns did not hamper the move.”

Another report said that the fake refugees had been held in detention in Trinidad and Tobago and that they were deported without the UNHCR being given access to them.

“The forced return of this group is of great concern,” Volker Turk, UNHCR’s Assistant High Commissioner for Protection said in a statement.

The UNHCR last month reported a 2,000 percent increase in the number of Venezuelans seeking “asylum” worldwide since 2014.

The reason for the increase is that Venezuela—which has always been an impoverished state despite rich oil reserves—has collapsed into typical Third World anarchy.

As a result, its population—which is the prime cause of the problem—now seeks to flee its own self-created disaster and live off other more stable nations.

The Trinidad and Tobago government for its part denied the deportations were forced and said the Venezuelans had been detained at the immigration detention center (IDC) for “various offenses.”

“At the airport, each person was asked if they had any fear or objection to returning to their homeland; all stated that they wanted to leave,” the Ministry of National Security said in a statement. “No one was forced or coerced to leave.”

The ministry said the repatriation of the 53 men and 29 women was a collaborative effort with the Venezuelan embassy, which arranged for the detainees to return to Caracas on a Venezuelan government aircraft.

  1. It is interesting to note that Trinadad and Tobago is one of the most affluent countries of central America which along with it’s proximity to Venezuela might account for why it was the destination of choice for the fake refugees. It is also interesting to note that Trinadad and Tobago like Venezuela relies on its energy sector for much of its economic activity, yet they have not managed to dig themselves into a hole as the Venezuelans have done.
    Obviously the authorities in Trinadad and Tobago do not intend to let illegal niceties obstruct the prompt deportation of the fake refugees, but I wonder if they have signed up to the 1951 Refugee Convention or if they have laws providing rights of asylum for foreigners.
