San Jose de Cucuta, a capital city of Norte de Santander department of Colombia, was in the headlines for the wrong reason. On February 23, 2019. at Cucuta, a convoy carrying humanitarian aid tried to enter Venezuela but was stoped and burned by the forces loyal to president Nicolas Maduro.

Many people found illegal trails, Truchas, that were being used for crossing to the other side.
The Venezuelan crisis deepens, as many have left the country and their families in search of a job and a better life.
