The Brazilian government wants to expand the number of cities welcoming Venezuelan immigrants and refugees.
Brazil’s Federal Police this morning (Aug 20) served three arrest warrants and six search and seizure orders in an operation targeting human smuggling in São Paulo city.
For the first time, Brazil applied the criteria in the expanded definition of refuge as set forth by the Cartagena Declaration on its decision to grant refugee status to 174 Venezuelans last week.
The government of São Paulo state launched the campaign Imigrante, São Paulo te acolhe (“immigrant, São Paulo welcomes you”), aimed at raising awareness about immigrants and refugees coming to the country.
The protection and assistance activities under Operation Acolhida (Portuguese for “shelter”)—for Venezuelans coming to Brazil via Roraima state—are now celebrating their first anniversary.
