Venezuelans arriving in Cancun deported

My daughter just told me that a friend that lives in Playa had family coming from Venezuela today and the entire plane was told that they were going to be deported back to Venezuela in 30 minutes. They had all the required paperwork including a return ticket in two weeks. If anyone has family or friends coming from Venezuela it is wise to check this out. One of the people waiting for family to arrive in Cancun called his immigration lawyer and was told the lawyer wasn't aware of that, but there was nothing he could do to help.

That's too bad. Mexico has never been too welcoming of those from the South of them, no matter the circumstances.

Not that I find that # trustworthy, but maybe you can provide a link like you do with every opinion piece you spew....

Merida holds about .6% of the population of Mexico.. So it's no benchmark.

I would expect to find more Asians than Cubans, along with the higher percentages of Canadians, US citizens, Europeans in your wonderful town.

I imagine, if true, it has to do with the fear of a surge of refugees who probably won't qualify under "refugee" status for a few reasons. One of which is that the UN has lots of love for Venezuela and would be very hestiant to declare it a failed state or in a a state of civil war.

I can't do anything about your expectations. If you add up all the Europeans, from all the countries, they may outnumber Cubans, but we are talking about countries.

My source? A man who worked for the State Department told me. He gave a talk on the history of Cuba - Yucatan relationships and he told all of us who were there. The Cubans there agreed with him.

He was a specialist in the Caribbean basin, and has photos in his office at his house of photos with Carter, Reagan, and Nixon.

He was in Brasil for a time. We talked about the military takeover I lived through as a 13 year old there.

Interesting fellow.

I am sure it is.

He cited a source, but I was not taking notes. And, I am talking about Yucatan state, not Quintana Roo or Campeche.

It is not a false narrative. It is an informed and true one.

But, since you guess on a lot of stuff, go ahead and guess on this one also.

Yep. In the last eight weeks 6000 Venezuelans have arrived in Cancun seeking asylum.
One plane turned away.

Cubans outnumber all other nationalities combined when it comes to legal permanent residency in the Yucatan, with a particularly large concentration in Merida (which is very visible).
