Peru: Refugees in Peru: Venezuelans must be protected
While millions are fleeing human rights violations in Venezuela, countries across the Americas have the obligation to offer safety and protection. The Peruvian government’s announcement of the creation of a public security unit to specifically target Venezuelans in Peru is a discriminatory measure that contravenes the state’s obligations under international human rights law. Instead of demonizing people in need, Peruvian authorities must guarantee their rights to due process and to seek international protection.
