Of the estimated 45,000 that cross into the country, 5,000 remain in Colombia or travel to other Latin American countries in search of safety and a new life. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Last year, more than a quarter of a million Venezuelans filed asylum claims, mostly in Latin America. In addition, an estimated 1.3 million Venezuelan refugees and migrants have benefitted from other legal forms of stay in Latin America. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ However, many Venezuelans remain in an irregular situation, which does not guarantee them access to basic rights and puts them at risk of exploitation and abuse.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Photo: © UNHCR/Vincent Tremeau⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #Venezuela #Colombia #mother #son #child #asylum
