Aruba recently deported 12 women from Venezuela for engaging in prostitution

As Venezuela’s economic crisis has driven families and workers out of the country in search of basic food items and healthcare, many neighboring and nearby countries have expressed concern over an increase in prostitution.

Immigration authorities in Aruba’s capital city Orangestad detained 12 women working at a nightclub, deporting them Sunday, January 22.

The women, between 22 and 27 years old, had come from the Venezuelan states of Falcon, Carabobo, Aragua, Táchira, Distrito Capital and other regions of the country.

Officials issued sanctions against each of the women, including a ban from returning that ranged between six months and five years.

In October, Brazilian authorities warned about the increase of prostitution on the Venezuelan border as well as the arrival of refugees.

Near the Colombian border, meanwhile, there have been reported “fights to the death” over disputed territory between Colombian and Venezuelan prostitutes, leading to multiple femicides in less than 18 days.
