Approximately 300 Venezuelan asylum seekers, most of whom travelled from Trinidad, spent the night on the streets of Scarborough Monday awaiting Tuesday's 7 am opening of the Tobago amnesty registration centre at Caroline Building, Wilson Road.
According to Emily Lyon, a Venezuelan who travelled to Tobago to register, a list with names of persons outside the centre was organised by a group leader to determine each person's position in the registration line.
With one week to go before the deadline for registration, over 200 Venezuelans braved the inclement weather in Tobago yesterday and turned up at the Caroline Building Registration Centre in Scarborough, Tobago, in an attempt to get away from the long lines at the two locations in Trinidad.
This is the first time Tobago has seen such an influx, since the registration process commenced nine days ago.Since the start of the registration process, Tobago has not seen any figures exceeding 40 migrants on a daily basis.
With the end of the registration period drawing close and the migrant numbers increasing, Venezuelans are appealing to the Government to extend the deadline.
The appeal came as hundreds of Venezuelans, many with their babies and children, converge daily outside of Achievor’s Banquet Hall in Duncan Village, San Fernando for hours, hoping to be registered.
Lining up for hours in the rain and heat may seem onerous to many but not for Venezuelan mother Roysin Maiz who says the wait was nothing compared to the six days she spent living in the forests after a perilous boat ride.
Resident Imam of the San Fernando Jama Masjid, Atif Majeed Sulaimani, is urging Muslims to help feed, clothe and assist Venezuelan migrants who are now struggling to cope with life in Trinidad and Tobago having fled the social, political and economic turmoil in their country.
Speaking at Eid-ul-Fitr celebrations at the mosque on Mucurapo Street, San Fernando, yesterday, Sulaimani said extending help to the poor was part of Islam’s teachings.
Government’s amnesty registration drive for Venezuelans has so far attracted an average of 850 people passing through most centres daily.
And those in line who aren’t attended the same day, receive a chit to obtain a priority appearance subsequently.
Acting National Security Minister Fitzgerald Hinds confirmed this on Tuesday in an update to reporters at Parliament.
