I have a friend who came from Venezuela as tourist. His 9 year old child was born in the U.S. He and his wife's tourist legal stay expires on October 20, 2013. Is there any law or protective status currently available for Venezuelans?
Took me less then 30 seconds to find this page:

WHich clearly indicates that there is none. HAd you tired, after all, you did find you way to AVVO, you would have found it as well. It is very easy. All you had to do was to type this very question in the google search.
There is no protective status for Venezuelans right now. What they have to do is speak with an attorney that has handled asylums from Venezuela before. The situation there is extremely fluid with Maduro expelling the U.S. diplomats and the increasing threat to individuals with financial stability. The fact that the child is a U.S. citizen is something that must be taken into account. Good luck.
