The crowd of Venezuelan migrants

TIME’S ALMOST UP: The crowd of Venezuelan migrants outside the Queen’s Park Oval registration centre on the 12th day of the two week process.

“PLEASE, Mr Minister, help us!”

This was the desperate plea of Venezuelans outside the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain yesterday, as they begged for more time to register as part of the Government’s migrant registration programme.

The registration period ends tomorrow, and according to National Security Ministry Stuart Young, there will be no extension.

Yesterday, humanitarian ambassador Yesenia Gonzalez pleaded with the Government to grant Venezuelans one more week to register.
