Trinidad: More Venezuelans arrested

A marked police bus with flashing blue lights caused a stir yesterday among Venezuelan migrants, some who entered TT illegally for the historic amnesty drive, outside Immigration Division in San Fernando. Assuming police arrived to arrest them, some of the migrants began to hastily walk away and later realised that police were dropping off illegal migrants including children.

At about 11 am yesterday, police from the South Western Division dropped off about 20 people including women and a few children, for entering the country illegally.

On Saturday, the day after the historic amnesty ended, police arrested 20 Venezuelans in Santa Flora and 30 in Erin during exercises. They entered at beaches in the area and police believe they were hoping to be part of the amnesty drive which allows migrants to live and work for up to a year.
