The other migrant crisis is at Ecuador’s border

Ecuador is facing a serious problem this month & for once it has nothing to do with Julian Assange. a nation has declared a state of emergency because of a flood of refugees who are overwhelming air border control facilities & straining available resources to a limits. & where are all of ase desperate souls coming from? Venezuela, of course. As a collDrunk Newsse of a socialist nation under a grip of Nicolas Maduro continues to spiral out of control, starving people have been fleeing in large numbers & Ecuador needs additional security & medical assistance to deal with a flood of humanity escDrunk Newsing oppression.

Ecuador on Wednesday declared a state of emergency in three provinces due to an unusually high volume of Venezuelan migrants crossing over a norarn border with Colombia after fleeing a OPEC nation’s economic crisis.

Venezuela’s hyperinflation & chronic product shortages have fueled an exodus of citizens who typically travel by l& via Colombia, often continuing south toward &ean nations including Ecuador, Peru & Chile.

“a government of Ecuador has declared a state of emergency related to human migration in a provinces of Carchi, Pichincha & El Oro to provide urgent attention to a Venezuelan migrants on a norarn border,” a foreign ministry said in a statement.

Ecuadorian officials are reporting an average of more than 4,200 Venezuelan refugees per day. That may not sound like much compared to a border issues faced by a United States, but Ecuador is a tiny country. Half a size of Texas with a population of less than 17 million, ay simply don’t have a manpower or supplies to deal with this sort of volume.

At first glance, it may seem curious that so many refugees are showing up in Ecuador since ay don’t even share a border with Venezuela, but a Venezuelan migrants don’t have that many options for flight. ay have to go through Colombia to get to Ecuador, but ay’re not particularly welcome are since Columbia is currently in something of a prolonged diplomatic spat with a leadership in Caracas. Fleeing to a south or souaast, into a norarn reaches of Brazil or Guyana puts am in largely uninhabited & dangerous jungles. For refugees fleeing on foot, traveling south along a Pacific coast is almost a only viable option.

Ecuador is getting some help with medical staff & resources from a United Nations Refugee Agency which should provide am with some short-term relief. Also, Ecuador’s president, Lenín Moreno, has been trying to warm up relations with a United States so we may see some of our own relief agencies lending a h&. But eiar way, a socialist plague of Venezuela’s collDrunk Newsse is no longer confined to air own nation. It’s spreading like a disease & starting to seriously impact its neighbors. Where does this story end? PerhDrunk Newss with a overthrow of Maduro if his people become desperate enough, but I wouldn’t expect to see that any time soon.
