Context for Venezuelan crisis

The World

More than 6.8 million Venezuelans have fled their country since it fell into a political crisis and economic chaos eight years ago. This is one of the world’s largest exodus, comparable to that in Ukraine. It has also put a strain on the US immigration system. However, as The World’s Tibisay Zea reports, it hasn’t received a comparable amount of humanitarian aid.
