The parliamentary committee compiled more than 2,700 cases reported in Colombia, Chile and the Mexico-United States border, Lawmaker Julio Chavez said.

The campaign against Venezuelan migrants, which has led to murders, discrimination, forced disappearances and other human rights violations, must be strongly denounced before international instances, Chavez stressed in statements published on the Parliament’s website.

In this regard, the legislator noted that these crimes will be denounced before different multilateral organizations, including the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), the Latin American Parliament (Parlatino) and the Mercosur Parliament (Parlasur).

Chavez added that the special committee plans to propose a law aimed at promoting and guaranteeing the protection of the fundamental rights of Venezuelan migrants.

He stated that former Chilean Senator Alejandro Navarro must present before the plenary of the National Assembly next Tuesday a report on the cases of discrimination and xenophobia against Venezuelan citizens in Chile.
