What started as a trickle, with several hundred desperate women defying border guards and crossing into Columbia to retrieve badly needed supplies, has turned into a flood.  The Venezuelan government has acquiesced to the demands of its people, and has started opening the border with Columbia for brief periods of time, and Venezuelans are taking advantage of that in droves.
It’s estimated that over the weekend, 123,000 Venezuelans crossed into Columbia to buy supplies that can’t be found in their own country.
