The homicide rate in Venezuela has dropped like a rock.
The numbers are shocking, actually, in how high they remain and how much they have fallen. More than a 25% drop in about a year, according to the Venezuela Violence Observatory.
The explanation for this sudden drop in the murder rate doesn't require a great deal of research. All you need to do is read the news and you will see story after story about Venezuelan i*****l i*******ts committing crimes in the United States.
(Bloomberg) -- Venezuela’s rate of violent deaths dropped to its lowest level in more than two decades following years of massive migration as both criminals and victims fled the nation’s economic crisis.
The Venezuelan Violence Observatory registered 26.8 violent deaths per 100,000 inhabitants this year from a rate of 35.3 for every 100,000 habitants in 2022, Roberto Briceño León, director of the Observatory, said in a webcast Thursday. That’s its lowest since 2001 and is one-third of what it was in 2016, he added.
Young people, who have traditionally been the main victims of violence, have fled, while criminals and gangs have emigrated due to the lack of opportunities to commit crimes, according to Briceño León.
Democrats keep talking about Republicans "pouncing" or "seizing" on the crime wave sweeping the nation caused by the Democrats' immigration policies, but even with all the cover the MSM gives Biden and Mayorkas the reality has been sinking in that Democrats have invited not the world's best into our country, but some of the worst.
Jesse Watters: "As migrant crime in America skyrockets, crime in Venezuela has fallen to a 22-year low. Why? Because they're sending their criminals here...We're being murdered. Our own media's covering it up, and our government is sanctioning it." pic.twitter.com/h2KqLRCFqHhttps://hotair.com/david-strom/2024/02/28/venezuela-homicide-rate-lowest-in-22-years-as-its-gangs-migrate-here-n3783700
