Venezuela's 'staggering' exodus reaches 4 million, UN refugee agency says

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jun/07/venezuela-exodus-4-million-un-refugee-agency

More than 4 million Venezuelans have now fled economic and humanitarian chaos in what the UN’s refugee agency called a “staggering” exodus that has swelled by 1 million people since last November alone.

The number of Venezuelan migrants and refugees stood at about 695,000 at the end of 2015, the UNHCR and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) announced on Friday.

Three and a half years later – with Venezuela immersed in a seemingly intractable social and political crisis – that number has “skyrocketed” to more than 4 million, the groups said.

About half of that total have sought shelter in two South American countries – Colombia and Peru – which host about 1.3 million and 768,000 respectively. Many others have made for Chile (288,000), Ecuador (263,000), Brazil (168,000) and Argentina (130,000).

Could you imagine how much better their quality of life would have been if we had never destabilized their government?

Can't wait for another embarrassment for Trump and his murderous Latin American allies.
