Have not seen huge numbers of Venezuelans in Darien Gap. Seen huge numbers Venezuelans in Colombia, but I would say fewer than 5 percent, maybe more like 2 percent, going through Gap have been Venezuelans. I interviewed some in jungle.
Mostly Cubans and Haitians. More than 50 percent Cubans and Haitian though octane may have increased on Haitians since my last dip. Most rest are from Africa and South Asia such as india, Nepal, Bangladesh.
Many Haitians spent years in Chile, etc, before Biden. After inauguration, they bolted to America free stuff.
HOWEVER— am told many actual Chileans may come. I will go look or send someone. Probably go look myself.
Important: numbers from Red Cross and others often wrongly label Haitians and others are Chileans and Brazilians because they spent years there and have paperwork.
Will recon here in Texas and pick next probe. Probably Chile. Yuma also might flare.
