    In the same vein; WSJ’s Epic Distortion of Colombian and Venezuelan Refugees https://venezuelanalysis.com/ANALYSIS/13670

    The seemingly unlikely figures for immigration into Venezuela is confirmed at the US site at 1.4 million for 2017 (the article above claiming 1 million from Colombia )

    The emigrant figures are hard to find as the UN now only mentions migrants it seems .

    The Irish Times latest https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-...sery-1.3436397
    is a copy of the New York Times one by same author https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/20/w...%2Fkirk-semple
    NYT yet another disinfo merchant sadly .
    Seems completely lost on you that both immigrants and emigrants are migrants. Not sure what point you're trying to make.......

    This is not lost on me , sorry Count or whatever your real name is . I was being honest in pointing out that I cannot confirm the 1st article's claim on emigration (migrants leaving) , but seeing as the figures for immigration match with the UN data , I am inclined to believe it . Further data is available at UN which is not accessible to the general public yet

    C. Flower was/is adamant that people here not be required to use their real names, therefore, in that spirit, I don't have a real name......

    Hunger and division in Venezuela

    Venezuela's humanitarian crisis is deepening.


    What's new: In polling data out today from the Atlantic Council, three-quarters of respondents say they’re eating fewer meals. Concerns over the availability of food and medicine are near-universal. 88% say life is worse than a year ago, while 73% expect it to be worse a year from now.


    Data: Atlantic Council March 2018 Poll; Note: "Very bad/Bad/Regular to bad", "Very Good/Good/Regular to good", "Get much worse/Get Worse/Equally bad", and "Get much better/Get better/Equally good" responses combined. "Don't know/no answer" not shown; Chart: Axios Visuals

    So who do Venezuelans blame? 54% say President Nicolas Maduro is responsible for the hyperinflation that is wreaking havoc on the economy. 50% say his leadership is “very bad,” while 0.4% say it’s "very good" (overall approval sits at 22%.)

    And yet Maduro has little fear of being voted out in May. Brookings fellow and Stanford research scholar Harold Trinkunas told me the regime is even “betting they might not have to steal too many votes.” That’s because the opposition is fractured, and divided over whether to take part or boycott the vote.

    Go deeper: What the future holds for Maduro and other strongman leaders.
