Pacaraima (Brazil) /Attacks by Brazilians against Venezuelan immigrant camps in the border town of Pacaraima have led 1,200 Venezuelans to leave the country and return to theirs.
Pacaraima lives a stressed calm after the protests on Saturday that led to acts of vandalism against Venezuelan immigrants that escape from the economic, political and social crisis that the Caribbean nation goes through.
Neighbors of this small town of 12,000 inhabitants, located in the impoverished state of Roraima (north), expelled Venezuelans from the tents where they survive and later set fire to these temporary homes along with their personal belongings.

The wave of violence has already caused at least 1,200 Venezuelans have decided to pick their belongings up and leave Brazil to go to where they left, as the Brazilian Army confirmed.
Pacaraima has become the main gateway for the 50,000 Venezuelans who have entered Brazil in the last year and a half to rebuild their lives. It is estimated that 400 cross daily the border.
After the incidents, the Brazilian Government announced the construction of a new shelter in Roraima, the sending of 36 health volunteers and a battalion with 120 people from the National Force to reinforce security. (August 20, 2018, EFE/PracticaEspañol)
