The politics of Venezuela are intoxicating. Mass corruption, Russian troops, international sanctions, and tweetstorms from Senator Marco Rubio, John Bolton and so many others make for vivid headlines. But amidst the scandal and intrigue, the plight of Venezuelans forced to flee Nicolas Maduro’s regime has failed to attract the same attention. David Smolansky, chair of the working group on the Venezuelan migration and refugee crisis at the Organization of American States, joins Altamar to discuss the overlooked aspects of Latin America’s largest refugee crisis in history.
