Colombia is currently dealing with a massive wave of refugees coming from Venezuela. Venezuelans are fleeing their home because of a severe economic crisis under President Nicolas Maduro. There are high inflation rates and there isn’t enough food available for people within Venezuela to even eat. Thousands of Venezuelans cross the Simon Bolivar bridge located at Cúcuta every day and Colombia doesn’t seem to be turning anyone way.

This borders episode looks at why Colombia doesn’t turn away these refugees, the shared history of the two nations and how there may be a limit to Colombia’s acceptance of incoming Venezuelans.

Vox Borders is an international documentary series by Emmy-nominated producer Johnny Harris exploring life at the edge of nations. For more, visit vox.com/borders.

Thanks so much to everyone who has tuned in, commented, and shared their excitement for Borders! I'm so thrilled to share this latest season with you. I'll be around in the comments (and the chat before this episode premieres) to take your questions. Let me know what's on your mind. – Johnny

Thank u for sharing the love of Columbia to Venezuela😘 touches many hearts. More power to u Johnny. ☺️
Venezuela has a big problem , it's name is USA and TRUMP who want the oil and spend millions of dollars to finish with the Venezuelan people,sorry but English is not my language!
Richard Jackson
I'm sorry, but it makes no sense for Colombia to claim they are being kind to Venezuelans when they are supporting and encouraging those that are creating the economic chrisis that is forcinging Venezuelans to go to Colombia as migrants. It's blatant hypocracy and no different to a country encouraging the wars in the middle East then complaining when those running from the war come as immigrants to their country. It is only a matter of tme before Colombian people will start complaining about the growing problems immigration is causing like European nations started complaining about immigration and the Colombia people will no longer tolerate the lies and behaviour of their government towards Venezuela that is causing the immigration and vote their government out of power as is taking place in Europe. Peace and love

Kevin Ordonez
Why not tell the people why Venezuelans dont have medicine that is do to the embargos nobody can sell to Venezuela that the gods honest truth dont mislead the people
Kevin Ordonez

Guess Who
SUPPORT MADURO the media is lying......Maduro is another example of what happens if your not with ISRAELand US. They will put sanctions and destroy your country and then blame its leader...Sick but TRUE
Alejandro Montes
Colombia is saving the world
Tahuan Tinsuyo
No mention of the US imposed economic siege on the Venezuelans to starve them into submission. 9,000,000 Venezuelans voted for President Maduro, and nobody voted for our puppet, Guairdo, now the most hated in Venezuela. Even the racist Venezuelan oligarchy hates him because Obama like appearance. Trump makes no secret that he wants to privatize Venezuela's oil company and give it to EXXON and their ilk. Trump declares that Venezuela has no sovereignty. Where have we seen this scenario before? Libya and Syria. Venezuelans must choose. Surrender to Trump, Bolton, and war criminal Elliot Abrams, or seek protection from Russia. What would you do? Venezuela's oil wealth can pay off the entire twenty two trillion dollar US national debt.

I mean it’s better to live in a camp then not be able to buy a box of cereal
cuba intervene ,rusia started intervene, is time to invade and save the continent

crime after migration? shocker
Sr Azul
They used to let Venezuleans in Panama but something happend and the Government kicked alot of them out. There are some still here only with Legal documents
Donald Han
oh, it's amazing. i didnt know this fact. there is  old saying in korea, the person who got help by someone should pay it back until the death. Colombians has done it since venezuela economic crisis even though neighboring nations are building the wall on their border. it is wonderful story.  i hope many colombians and venezuelans have better life in the future. and also I hope Maduro's butt is kicked by venezuleans who have been starving for a few days.as reporter says,  Venezuela collapse was  not caused by civil war, but  by the economic crisiss. so, corrupted politicians and businessmen in venezuela should commit hara-kiri like Samurai in japan.
Suzie Q
You can’t say enough is enough! America can’t say it so no one else can either. Really though where do we go when the globalists have turned to whole world into Venezuela?
Generation Babe
Ugh I wish more people from the US spoke Spanish, so many people in the comments here are pleasantly surprised that Johnny speaks Spanish (and even more surprised that he speaks very well). I'm just thinking of the positive outcomes that could come from more non-Hispanic people in the US learning Spanish. It should be required in schools here.
Raymond Woods
Why Venezuela has taken in 5.5 million colombians??
Павел Рудис
Too much lying, can't handle this. Really wish that USA shouldn't do that to this country. Typical Iraq and Libya situation

About Venezuela: Venezuela is a country on the northern coast of South America with diverse natural attractions. Along its Caribbean coast are tropical resort islands including Isla de Margarita and the Los Roques archipelago. To the northwest are the Andes Mountains and the colonial town of Mérida, a base for visiting Sierra Nevada National Park. Caracas, the capital, is to the north.

The Vault is a 3 day conference with Patrick Bet-David that will be held in Dallas, TX aimed to help Entrepreneurs, CEO’s and Executives get clear on what they need to do to reach their individual capacity. At this event, you'll learn how to:

You are where you are based on the way you view money, success, relationships and yourself. In order to recreate yourself, you will need a set of tools, strategies and mindsets to help you take that quantum leap to the next level.

Your next 3 moves may be different than someone else’s. At The Vault, we will identify your BEST next 3 moves in both your personal and business life.

Many know how to win during good economic times but only a few know how to win during a recession or an economic collapse. The Forbes 400 is made up of leaders who knew how to anticipate, adapt and adjust swiftly to capitalize during bad times.


Dear Entrepreneur,

Over the years, many of you have asked me why I create content and openly share my strategies with you. The answer is quite simple yet emotional. Simple because I believe the strategies I share can get anyone results living in any country. Emotional because I know how close I was to giving up and just being average and ordinary. How close I was to just throwing in the towel. How close I was to believing my critics that I wasn’t good enough to compete in the market place. I never thought I would wake up one day running a financial firm with nearly 10,000 agents with Oscar De La Hoya as one of my investors. I never thought I’d create a brand called “Valuetainment” that inspires millions of Entrepreneurs around the world. I never thought I would get to a point of having billionaires, politicians, influencers and celebrities on speed dial. But something changed.

I got CLEAR on what I wanted and who I wanted to be.

I got CLEAR on a problem solving strategy that helped me in the war room, board room and the bedroom.

I got CLEAR on effective strategies and hacks that helped me grow during good times and bad times.

I got CLEAR on the type of a leader I want to be and the type of a team I want to build.

This is why “The Vault” is an event you must attend in 2019. I truly believe Valuetainment will be known as the brand that inspired the next generation of great leaders, minds, innovators and Entrepreneurs around the world. I will also be unveiling the vision of Valuetainment at the conference. We are in search for leaders around the world and I can’t wait to meet many of you face to face in Dallas.

Much love,

Patrick Bet-David (Tweet: @patrickbetdavid)
