EU - Parliament Urges Member States To Take On More Venezuelan Refugees As Spain Flooded

The EU Parliament called upon it’s member states to help Spain as it deals with an overflow of Venezuelan migrants. It is estimated some 100,000 Venezuelans have arrived in the Iberian peninsula ever since President Maduro plunged the country in economic crisis, and that a total of 200,000 now live in the southern European country.

Spanish EU parliamentarian Ms Beatriz Becerra this week visited Venezuela's border with Colombia, together with a small delegation of EU politicians, to see first-hand the flood of migrants that are crossing into the latter country.

Ms Becerra: "People who are crossing the Venezuelan border into Colombia, and to a lesser extent Brazil, are doing so because they lack the most basic needs. What is happening in Venezuela is not the product of a natural disaster, a drought or a hurricane; it is the product of a political decision."

Migration is of course a hot topic in Europe now that the bloc has just seen a summit on immigration called because of Italy’s refusal to take on more migrants ships and Germany’s threat to install border controls anew.

The Spanish socialist politician believes that the immigration issue is overrated in the press and that the European nations should do more to take on Venezuelans. She said: "Yes, we do have the challenge of adequately managing migration flows, but the numbers do not tell us that there is a crisis."

"The number of displaced people on Europe's border compared to those displaced in Venezuela's borders is incomparable."

"What is most grave and inhumane is to have produced this hunger crisis and high emergency situation and then not allow for humanitarian aid to assist it."

It is estimated that some 66% of Spanish citizens are against taking on additional migrants, as newspapers found out after the minority socialist government of Mr Sanchez allowed to take on a migrant ship carrying 600 African refugees two weeks ago in Valencia.
