The number of Venezuelans seeking asylum tripled from 2015 to 2016, as
the once-wealthy nation continues to be trapped in a punishing economic,
social and political crisis.

According to a United Nations report released Monday, some 34,200
Venezuelans sought asylum in 2016 — up from 10,200 claims the previous
year. Of those asylum applicants, 18,300 sought refuge in the United States.

The Venezuelan exodus is notable because for decades the South American
country had been a destination for refugees attracted by its thriving,
oil-rich economy and welcoming immigration policies.

In 2016, the nation was still home to more than 172,000 people
(primarily Colombians fleeing decades of violence) who were living there
under "refugee-like conditions," according to the report, called "Global
Trends: Forced Displacement in 2016" and put out by the U.N. High
Commissioner for Refugees.

Francesca Fontanini, a spokeswoman with UNHCR, said that in the last
year there had been a "significant increase" in Venezuelan asylum
seekers in Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico.

What the report doesn't reflect are the massive numbers of Venezuelans
moving abroad for economic reasons who don’t apply for asylum.

According to a UN estimate from 2015, there were some 606,344
Venezuelans living abroad, more than half of them in the United States.

moving abroad for economic reasons who don't apply for asylum.

According to a UN estimate from 2015, there were some 606,344
Venezuelans living abroad, more than half of them in the United States.
U.S. asylum seekers

In total, the United States received 262,000 new asylum applications in
2016, up 52 percent from the previous year and double from 2014. That
puts it second only to Germany (722,400) in terms of new claims. And it
was followed by Italy (123,000) and Turkey (78,600).

Of those applying for asylum in the United States, 52 percent were from
Mexico and Central America. The most common country of origin was El
Salvador with 121,200 applications, followed by Mexico (27,900),
Guatemala (25,700), China (19,900) and Honduras (19,500).

When it comes to refugees, however, Colombia continues to be the
hemisphere's trouble spot.

According to the report, as of 2016, there were some 7.7 million
Colombians who were forcibly displaced. Those are cumulative numbers
dating back to 1985, though, and don't fully capture the huge strides in
security the country has made in the last decade.

Even so, that makes Colombia second only to Syria in the number of
displaced people.

With Venezuela in chaos, asylum petitions have tripled. Most seek refuge

BOGOTA, Colombia
The number of Venezuelans seeking asylum tripled from 2015 to 2016, as
the once-wealthy nation continues to be trapped in a punishing economic,
social and political crisis.
According to a United Nations report released Monday, some 34,200
Venezuelans sought asylum in 2016 — up from 10,200 claims the previous
year.
Of those asylum applicants, 18,300 sought refuge in the United States.
The Venezuelan exodus is notable because for decades the South American
country had been a destination for refugees attracted by its thriving,
oil-rich economy and welcoming immigration policies.
In 2016, the nation was still home to more than 172,000 people
(primarily Colombians fleeing decades of violence) who were living there
under "refugee-like conditions," according to the report, called "Global
Trends: Forced Displacement in 2016" and put out by the U.N. High
Commissioner for Refugees.
Francesca Fontanini, a spokeswoman with UNHCR, said that in the last
year there had been a "significant increase" in Venezuelan asylum
seekers in Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico.

What the report doesn't reflect are the massive numbers of Venezuelans
moving abroad for economic reasons who don't apply for asylum.
According to a UN estimate from 2015, there were some 606,344
Venezuelans living abroad, more than half of them in the United States.
U.S. asylum seekers
In total, the United States received 262,000 new asylum
applications in
2016, up 52 percent from the previous year and double from 2014. That
puts it second only to Germany (722,400) in terms of new claims. And it
was followed by Italy (123,000) and Turkey (78,600).
Of those applying for asylum in the United States, 52 percent were from
Mexico and Central America. The most common country of origin was El
Salvador with 121,200 applications, followed by Mexico (27,900),
Guatemala (25,700), China (19,900) and Honduras (19,500).
When it comes to refugees, however, Colombia continues to be the
hemisphere's trouble spot.
According to the report, as of 2016, there were some 7.7 million
Colombians who were forcibly displaced. Those are cumulative numbers
dating back to 1985, though, and don't fully capture the huge strides in
security the country has made in the last decade.
Even so, that makes Colombia second only to Syria in the number of
displaced people.

You're so ridiculous. Let me tell you! The most ridiculous person has
ever passed by this newsgroup. That's why TS destroyed you as much as he
wanted. He kicked your ass so many time. Remember that, YMF. - Don't you
say that Internet has a long memory?
