In the face of growing political unrest in Venezuela, a large number of Venezuelan immigrants living in Trinidad are concerned that the continued violence may spill-over into Trinidad and result in an immigration crisis.

Approximately 15,000 Venezuelans are residing there and as the social upheaval continues in Caracas and other major cities, this figure is expected to grow before the end of the year, Trinidad Newsday reported.

Meanwhile, the secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, held a telephone conversation on Wednesday afternoon with recently released opposition leader Leopoldo López.

During the conversation, the two agreed on the need to continue working for the return of democracy to Venezuela and the recovery of the rights of the Venezuelan people.
