Colombians along border see economic benefits from Venezuelan influx

Tens of thousands of Venezuelans cross into neighbouring Colombia on an almost daily basis 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 impact on their economy.

But those living along the border see major financial benefits.

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