Border patrol

Move to ramp up T&T's border patrols

Bor­der se­cu­ri­ty be­tween T&T and Venezuela is be­ing stepped up in an­tic­i­pa­tion of an in­creased in­flux of Venezue­lans fol­low­ing the cri­sis in that coun­try, says Na­tion­al Se­cu­ri­ty Min­is­ter Stu­art Young.

At yes­ter­day’s post-Cab­i­net me­dia brief­ing he said, “As things de­vel­op and if they de­vel­op in a man­ner that’s not one of calm we - be­ing one of the neigh­bour­ing coun­tries to Venezuela - can ex­pect an in­flux of im­mi­grants.”
