The Wider Image: Venezuelan mothers, children in tow, rush to migrate
Venezuelan migrant Andraimi Laya, 22, poses for a picture carrying her daughter Jessy, while they wait to process their documents at the Ecuadorian-Peruvian border service centre, before they continue their journey, on the outskirts of Tumbes, Peru, June 16, 2019. "I really was betting on Guaido. I was sure he was going to change the country," said Andraimi Laya, 22, her 2-year-old wiggling in her arms. When Peru's President Martin Vizcarra announced Venezuelans must have passports and visas to enter Peru starting June 15, Laya dropped everything. She put her dream of becoming a police officer on hold, sold her last valuable possession, her TV, and headed for Peru with her daughter. "I said, 'no, I'm not going to die here. This might be my last chance.'" Laya said. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins SEARCH "MOTHERS REFUGEE" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
