Venezuelan activist not comforted by news of extension for migrants

“What's next?”

That's the question being asked by Venezuelan activist, Sofia Figueroa-Leon, following the assurance that there would be an automatic extension for registered Venezuelan migrants.

During Thursday’s Post-Cabinet Media Briefing, National Security Minister Stuart Young guaranteed that holders of registration cards would get a six-month extension at the end of the period for which they are registered.

However, Figueroa-Leon said with the absence of a proper migrant policy, Venezuelans are subjected to a lack of basic human rights and public services.
