Venezuela’s Refugee Crisis to Surpass Syria, ‘Largest in Modern History’. 6.5 million by 2020. How many coming to the US?

Sharing is Caring!

The exodus of people from Venezuela is about to surpass the gravity of that of Syrians, becoming the “largest and most underfunded” refugee crisis in modern history, according to a study the Brookings Institute published this week.

In one of the most authoritative studies on the issue, the institute found that a staggering 4.6 million Venezuelans have fled the country since 2015, equivalent to around 16 percent of the country’s population.


Brookings estimates on current trends the Venezuelan outflow will reach 6.5 million people by the end of 2020, indicating an aggressive acceleration of emigration over the next 12 months.
