More than 5 million Venezuelans have left the country since 2014, fleeing the political and economic crisis.

Much of it crosses the Colombian border to leave the country, but many also leave Venezuela along the border with Brazil.

According to the UN, the number of migrants and refugees who have left Venezuela since 2016 has already surpassed the 5 million barrier. Brazil is the fifth country to receive them (263 thousand), but Roraima, which is on the border, concentrates at least 60 thousand, according to the state government.
