BTW, I want to say that I have been impressed the last two years at how relatively well Chileans seem to do with the Haitian influx. I see Haitians having jobs and working. This is the most important thing for a new community (and a place that Europe often fails at, they give money to the immigrants/support but no jobs). I remember 5 years ago, people with darker skin were treated as highly abnormal, and I was concerned about how Chileans would deal.

My question is, why countries with some fair economy have to be forced to accept unskilled illegal immigrants from shitty countries? Not all chileans are happy about this situation and many keep hush-hush to avoid been labelled "racist". Pino must be turning in his grave for sure!

Well, that was Bachelet policy for now. We´ll see what "the new sheriff in town" will do about the situation. I´m still hopeful.

Well, we all suspected it was happening, but now we got actual arrest inside the department of immigration for human trafficing:

Of course, waiting to see what the new head of immigration department will do:

The one that caught my attention last week was there was a fire in Puerto Montt, in a building that was all immigrants. The next day, there was a fire in Concepcion, all immigrants.

Now, obviously, a bunch of immigrants in various legal status, tend to end-up in buildings that are not the safest; and not like fire and building inspections are big thing in Chile anyway.

Just the chances of it happening in a 48 hour period, in two southern cities, pretty small.

I find it hard to believe it is only 111, or double that. Just statistically within a population of several hundred thousand people in Chile, immigrants or not, there will be more than that are homeless / living semi-permanent housing.

Just been working in Punta Arenas for the last three weeks. Quite surprised how it has changed here immigration wise. I have also heard about people trafficking going on, particularly in the realms of night clubs. How many illegals are off the radar I wonder.

The vast distance many of the new migrants are coming from is impressive, some doing menial work but with relatively good education levels is a reason why many are getting employment and staying. Of course others are just desperate for a new life as their home countries security nd living quality collapses around them, like Haiti and Venezuela.

Talking of Venezuela. I was reading in the news that Venezolanos are losing weight by 20 lbs or more on the average in comparison to 2016.
They are starving to death big time. Even in rural el campo, the once abundant roaming chickens and swines are no longer visible. The city people grabbing them free of charge(stealing) I hear. So I wonder why no migration crisis occurring in neighbouring Colombia?

The venezuelan situation is understandable. With a peckerhead for president, I would try to escape too but the Haitian matter is another thing!!
