1. Only the wealthy who live behind walls and in exchange for their oil rights.

That is my hunch. My wife’s aunt lived there and was married to a banker. He cut her out of his will and her kids took what else she had.

8. Quick perusal of Wikipedia

indicates that Venezuela is considerably "whiter" than Guatemala and Honduras - especially among the people who are likely to have the money to afford to come to the US.

No, it's not that strange for Trump. If you come in on a jetliner, especially with $$$ to buy a Trump condo, you're more welcome than people trying to eke out a better life for themselves and their families by crossing a large country on foot.
