In Venezuela si soffre la fame. Per questo, dopo che il Paese ha parzialmente riaperto il confine con la Colombia chiuso nel 2019 per tensioni politiche, i venezuelani hanno cominciato ad attraversare la frontiera per fare shopping a Cucuta, nel Paese confinante. Dopo aver acquistato cibo e altre merci, devono affrontare però il difficile viaggio per tornare illegalmente in Venezuela.

Anche i Colombiani, dal canto loro, non se la passano molto bene, per cui c’è emigrazione. È di questi giorni la notizia che la polizia cilena ha sfrattato centinaia di rifugiati colombiani che da oltre un anno vivevano in tenda nella piazza principale di Iquique in Cile.
