Peru: Refugees in Peru risk mass expulsions

Venezuelan nationals in Peru no longer can apply for temporary protection, which allowed refugees to have a regular migratory status. On 14 November, the Peruvian government issued the legislative decree 1582 dictating the expulsion of all foreigners with an irregular migratory status, putting countless Venezuelans who were unable to apply for temporary protection before the 10 November deadline at risk. The 24-hour process established for carrying out expulsions is incompatible with due process guarantees, the prohibition of non-refoulment, and international obligations of protection of Venezuelan nationals. We call on the Peruvian government to immediately repeal this decree.
