More than 4 thousand Venezuelans arrived in Ecuador after being expelled from Peru

About 4,000 Venezuelans they came to Ecuador in the last weeks. This comes after the announcement by the Government of Peru of expel to those foreigners who have not registered until November 10 to regularize his migratory situation. This was stated by the interim Ombudsman, César Córdova.

“It is a strong fact,” he acknowledged in an interview with the public channel Ecuador TV. Córdova insisted on the Ombudsman’s proposal to create “humanitarian corridors” for people of Venezuelan nationality who want transit through Ecuadorian territory return to your country of origin or destined for other countries. “I am concerned that they have already entered the country and there are 4,000 Venezuelans here who They need the support of a community”he added.

Córdova pointed out that the information is based on data known until last week and corresponded to 4,000 Venezuelans who had arrived in Ecuador and had not left the country, so he inferred that “they have stayed”.

The Ombudsman recalled that “migration is a human right” and urged Ecuadorians to be aware that “there are Ecuadorians abroad such as Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama who are in the same situation than the Venezuelans here.”

“We have to humanize us and to be able to help in the possibility of our reach, only evoking that my compatriot is also suffering what the Venezuelan, the Colombian or the Haitian suffers in Ecuador,” he added.

Although at first the administration of former President Guillermo Lasso had sounded the alarm when fearing a “exodus” of Venezuelans from Peruthe Peruvian Government made it clear to its counterparts in Ecuador and Colombia that the number of expulsions it will carry out could manage through the recent direct air commercial route that was recovered between Lima and Caracas.
