According to Colchane city Mayor Javier Garcia, Bolivia's coup-born regime led by Jeanine Añez has abandoned migrants during the sanitary emergency. This Chilean local authority her of being discriminatory with her citizens.
Those who entered Bolivian territory in airships were welcomed, but the less solvent ones who attempted an entrance by land routes are being neglected.
Garcia emitted complaints to the United Nations and human rights institutions because he considers that "Añez acted irresponsibly and the Chilean government has turned a deaf ear to this sad reality. It is a humanitarian tragedy.”
In Chile, Colchane city Mayor Javier Garcia stood in solidarity with Bolivians who want to enter our country and gave them food to ease their situation at the border.
Bolivia's Justice Minister Alvaro Coimbra, however, accused Garcia of being a member of the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS), the party led by former president Evo Morales.
Among the Bolivian migrants are 14 pregnant women, 18 minors, and 30 older adults. More drifters are expected to arrive at the common borderline zone.
"Given the insensitivity and irresponsibility of the de facto government, I call on international bodies such as the International Human Rights Commission, and UN Human Rights Commission to do everything... to ensure our compatriots's safe return,” Morales tweeted.
