Colombians on border see economic benefits from Venezuelan influx

PLEASE EDIT

by

    Tens of thousands of Venezuelans are crossing into neighbouring Colombia almost every day as Venezuela's political and economic crisis reached a new level with a controversial vote by President Nicolas Maduro.

    With an estimated one million Venezuelans having left their country, some Colombians are starting to worry about the effect on their economy.

    But those living along the border are seeing major financial benefits.

    Al Jazeera's David Mercer reports from Cucuta, Colombia.
