El Éxodo: Venezuelan Refugees In Colombia

El Éxodo: Venezuelan Refugees In Colombia

I just spent a few days down in Colombia, where the tide of refugees fleeing the political and humanitarian crisis next door in Venezuela has reached near-crisis proportions, with as many as 2 million legal and illegal arrivals now in the country.

Add that to some 7 million Colombians displaced internally by the recently-ended conflict with FARC guerrillas, and the challenge of absorbing the Venezuelan “exodus” is shaping up to be a major political issue as the country heads for presidential elections this spring.
