Escape from Venezuela

Venezuela is trapped in the world's most catastrophic economic crisis today.

By the end of this year, an estimated 3 million people - a tenth of the population - will have left the country since 2015.

WLRN's Tim Padgett visited Cúcuta - the Colombian border city where thousands of Venezuelans arrive each day as refugees - for its series of reports, "Escape From Venezuela."
