Refugees From The Socialist Paradise of Venezuela

How can this be? All those folks from Hollywood were telling me how great Venezuela was just a few short years ago. Now people are fleeing paradise? Northern Brazil overwhelmed by desperate, hungry Venezuelans | Fox News

In dozens of interviews over four days, many said they had not had more than one meal a day for the last year.

Some wore baggy clothes, had emaciated faces and complained of medical issues ranging from children with measles to diabetics with no insulin.

The Venezuelan government has run out of other people’s money.

I’m not sure if this is ironic or not. It is completely understandable.

While in recent years millions of Venezuelans have immigrated, until recently Brazil received relatively few of them. Hundreds of thousands have gone to Colombia, but authorities there and elsewhere in South America are tightening their borders.

I didn’t think tightening of borders was allowed.
