    Weird how you never see this kind of thing happen in capitalist countries where the workers are exploited.

    One million people enter Colombia amid Venezuela crisis.

    “To date we know that approximately one million people have entered Colombia through official migration points, and we don’t know how many have entered Colombia through unofficial migration points,” he said in a phone interview in Geneva, specifying that this movement had occurred “since mid-2017.”

    With the economic crisis in Venezuela intensifying, an estimated 37,000 people were now moving across the Colombian border each day, he added.

    On a recent trip to the region, Capobianco said he witnessed “a constant stream of people,” leaving Venezuela, some with their belongings strapped to the backs.

    While the group is diverse, with some only looking to work in Colombia for a short period before returning home, most are on the move because they cannot meet their basic needs in Venezuela, Capobianco explained.

    He described the situation as a “humanitarian crisis that needs to be better assessed,” including from a public health standpoint amid rising cases of malaria, diphtheria and other serious ailments affecting those migrating.
