Thousands of Stateless Venezuelan Children Stranded in Colombia

The unprecedented Venezuelan crisis is the biggest crisis in the hemisphere. For more than two years and due to ongoing political turmoil a regular stream of Venezuelans have crossed the borders to Colombia. 40% of Venezuelans in the country reside with no legal status.

Right groups estimate the number could be as high as 25,000.
