Despite having one of the biggest oil reserves in the world, Venezuela's economy is in a freefall, with triple-digit inflation and long lines for scarce food and medicine. For months, there have been violent protests against the government of President Nicolas Maduro in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas and an increasing number of Venezuelans are fleeing their homeland with tens of thousands trying to resettle in neighboring Colombia. With support from the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting, NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Nadja Drost and videographer Bruno Federico, report on the growing exodus from Venezuela.
