Trump Goes After Venezuelan Socialism but Doesn't Skip a Beat Deporting Venezuelans

Of the estimated 5 million refugees who have fled Venezuela's economic and political collapse, tens of thousands have sought refuge stateside each year since 2016. But rather than make things easier for fleeing Venezuelans, the Trump administration has tightened asylum standards. The result? Thousands of Venezuelans now find themselves staring down deportation. More than 24,000 Venezuelans were facing removal from the United States at the end of 2019, according to immigration court data obtained by Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC).
