Exodus from Venezuela

Military officers patrol as Venezuelan women walk towards Santa Elena to sleep, after checking their passports or identity cards at the Pacaraima border control, Roraima state, Brazil August 19, 2018. Tens of thousands of Venezuelans have poured over the border into Brazil's Roraima state over the last few years, fleeing economic and political turmoil in their country. The influx has overwhelmed the state's social services and brought a rise in crime, prostitution and disease, and has sparked incidents of xenophobia, Brazilian government officials say.

Venezuelan migrants queue in line to register their entry into Ecuador at the International Bridge Rumichaca, Ecuador August 18, 2018. Venezuelans entering Ecuador and Peru will soon be required to show their passports, rather than national identity cards, the Ecuadorean government and Peruvian official sources said on August 16, amid concerns over an influx of economic migrants.
