U.S. deports Venezuelan refugees to Trinidad and Tobago
By Andrea Torres

With the Nov. 3 presidential election approaching, Democrats are reminding voters that former Vice President Joe Biden promised that if he is elected he will grant Venezuelan migrants a temporary protected status. Trump recognized Juan Guaidó as the president of Venezuela, and he has imposed sanctions. Syracuse University’s Transactional Access Records Clearinghouse reports about 30 to 40% of asylum cases for Venezuelan refugees are being denied. The coronavirus pandemic’s recession is causing another exodus. Protests continue to be a regular occurrence in Caracas. The National Assembly elections are in December, but since Maduro excluded three of the four opposition political parties there is little hope for change.
