“This government has been characterized by generating meetings and announcements, but nothing has materialized, at least in the Colchane commune there has been no investment, we have only received two vehicles from a citizen security project for the year 2020-2021, and a drone team, said the mayor of ColchaneJavier García, regarding the migration crisis.

Colchanewith almost 1,600 inhabitants and located at 3,700 meters above sea level in the middle of the plateau, has no supermarkets, banks or sewage system.

Its telephone coverage is weak or non-existent and the primary health service has the capacity to attend to just over 10 cases a day, with the closest hospital 250 kilometers away by car along a winding road with unpaved sections.

The precarious communal infrastructure has been overwhelmed on multiple occasions by migratory waves, mostly made up of Venezuelan citizens whose exodus, of almost 6 million, is compared to others such as the flight from the war in Syria or migration in the western Mediterranean.

Irregular migration was not a new phenomenon in Chilibut from 2010 to July 2021 the figure has multiplied by 57, going from 415 to more than 23,000 people, mostly Venezuelans, according to the Jesuit Migrant Service (SJM).

To date, according to official figures, almost 1.5 million foreigners live in Chili -mainly Venezuelans and Peruvians-, a fact that does not include citizens who are not regularized in the country.
