250 more nationals in a Conviasa flight return to the Homeland from Peru

The Plan Vuelta a la Patria developed its 40th repatriation day from Peru on Wednesday, with 250 new nationals who voluntarily return to Venezuela through the state airline Conviasa. At the “Simón Bolívar” International Airport, in La Guaira, the welcome was given by authorities of the People’s Power Ministry for Foreign Relations and representatives of other Venezuelan institutions with responsibility for the execution of the Plan. The few employment opportunities and the xenophobic treatment stand out among the reasons for the return. Alejandro de Sales, who returns to Maracaibo, Zulia state, along with his wife, Mariángela Cepeda, and a young son, said he migrated convinced by photos published by national migrants in their social networks, but when he arrived in Peru he crashed with the hard reality of xenophobia and labor abuse.

“The people (Peruvians) in the jobs were mean to me, they didn’t pay me what was agreed and the work was forced. We come back because we can’t stand it anymore and we recommend to those who want to go to Peru, not to do it, because life in that country it’s very hard”, he said.

Migration blocking

The repatriated native of Barquisimeto, Lara state, Joselyn Sánchez, indicated that she returns with her husband and son because they failed to get a job that would guarantee them quality of life. Regarding the coercive measure imposed on Conviasa, she said that “it is sad and unfortunate that every day they block our country, they not only affect Conviasa, but also prevent the entry of food and that is why we Venezuelans have been migrating, because these measures are bad for the nation, the media, food, health, they block everything”. Peru occupies the second position, behind Brazil, in the list of number of returnees through the Plan Vuelta a la Patria, created by President Nicolás Maduro in April 2018 Around 18 thousand Venezuelans have benefited from the free repatriation Plan of the Bolivarian Government, unpublished in the world, from Brazil, Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Argentina, Colombia, Panama, Dominican Republic and Uruguay.
