Hungry, sick and increasingly desperate, thousands of Venezuelans are pouring into Colombia

An average of 35,000 people cross the Simon Bolivar International Bridge linking the two countries every day. About half return to the Venezuelan side after making purchases, conducting business or visiting family. But the rest stay in Cucuta at least temporarily or move on to the Colombian interior or other countries.

For many Venezuelans, the first stop after crossing is the Divine Providence Cafeteria, an open-air soup kitchen a stone's throw from the bridge. A Roman Catholic priest, Father Leonardo Mendoza, and volunteer staff serve some 1,500 meals daily. But it's not enough.

"Children come up to me and say, 'Father, I'm hungry.' It's heartbreaking. It's the children's testimony that inspires the charitable actions of all of us here," Mendoza said.

Much more at the link.

Will our resident progressives/socialists stand up to defend this? Or is it that their idiotic ideology hasn't yet managed to spread quite enough human misery, privation, and death in Venezuela for their liking yet?

Socialism is nothing more than murder. Anyone who looks upon it favorably is not to be trusted.
