Two countries are warning their residents about gun violence and hate crimes that have recently occurred in the United States. Uruguay and Venezuela have both issued travel warnings about the United States following the two mass shootings that killed 31 people.
According to CNN, Uruguay’s Office of Foreign Ministry issued an advisory to its citizens stating that “citizens should take precaution amid the growing discriminatory violence, specifically hate crimes including hate crimes and discrimination when traveling to the United States.” The advisory also warned residents from going to Detroit, Baltimore, and Albuquerque.
The Venezuelan Ministry Office stated that citizens should postpone their trips especially to Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas. They also released a statement, “These increasing acts of violence have found an echo and support in the conversations and actions impregnated by racial discrimination and hatred against migrant populations, pronounced and executed by the supremacist elite who holds political power in Washington.”
