COLOMBIA-VENEZUELA-BORDER Colombians deported from Venezuela who returned for some of their belongings and crossed them through the bordering Tachira river, stand on the banks of the river in Cucuta, on the Colombian side, on August 25, 2015. Over a thousand Colombians "who did not have any type of identification" had been deported since Friday, according to the governor of the Venezuelan state of Tachira, Jose Gregorio Vielma. On August 21 Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro indefinitely closed his country's border with Colombia and declared a state of emergency in part of the frontier region following an attack on Wednesday that wounded four people.

Provea, a human rights group headquartered in Caracas, called Maduro’s comments “a dangerous campaign of xenophobia against Colombians residing in Venezuela.”

Venezuela’s Socialist president vowed to continue his crackdown on illegal aliens after closing a major border crossing with neighboring Colombia last week and ordering the deportation of 1,000 Colombians living illegally in his country.

The crackdown was triggered by the recent shooting of three Venezuelan soldiers who were searching for smugglers in the state of Tachira, which is located near Venezuela’s 1,400-mile border with Colombia. “Venezuela won’t tolerate this anymore,” President Nicolas Maduro said during a two-hour press conference on Monday, according to the Associated Press.

He blamed Colombian President Alvaro Uribe for crimes committed in Venezuela by paramilitary gangs, calling his counterpart a “nefarious paramilitary boss” and an “assassin.”

Maduro previously claimed that illegal immigrants were bringing “poverty and misery” with them.

“Who comes over from Colombia? It’s people practically without education,” the Venezuelan president said in a televised address to the nation, The Wall Street Journal reported.

“I’m not offending Colombia, I’m just telling a truth…From Colombia, all of the poverty and misery is coming over with a people who are escaping for economic needs and fleeing war.” President Maduro added.

  • The May 18-21 festival appeared to be a Saudi charm offensive aimed at federal policy makers as the Trudeau government fields questions about its decision to grant export permits for the armoured vehicles to a country that U.S. watchdog Freedom House regularly ranks among “the worst of the worst” on human rights. The Saudi embassy blamed “logistical reasons” for its last-minute change of plans when contacted Monday and a spokesperson said the country’s decision was not motivated by fear of protesters. Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion’s office had already said he would not be attending the “Saudi Cultural Days in Canada.” The embassy was adamant the event “had nothing to do” with the $15-billion arms deal and said it had been planned for years. Canada’s Department of Global Affairs, however, said it was notified of the “Cultural Days” on Jan. 14. That date was nearly two weeks after mass executions in Saudi Arabia drew public condemnation from the Trudeau government.
