These are the US cities with the largest population in Venezuela

The Migration Institute reports that Venezuela has a long history of internal conflict and economic volatility, but the country reached a turning point in 2016. The rise in inflation reached more than 130,000 percent in 2018. Political violence directed against protesters and political opponents, widespread violence and the collapse of public services (especially the health system) led to a humanitarian crisis of its time More than 7.7 million Venezuelans left their country, mainly between 2016 and 2021.

About 6.5 million Venezuelans moved to other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, while the United States and Spain each received half a million or more. Not all Venezuelans self-identify as refugees (partly due to the lack of information on the expanded definition of refugees in the Cartagena Declaration), but almost all describe their displacement as forced and a matter of survival.

At the beginning of the crisis, the governments of the region mostly welcomed the Venezuelans, giving them some kind of legal status, although they did not have to apply the existing legislation that includes the expanded definition in the Cartagena Declaration on who is a refugee.

These Are The Us Cities With The Largest Population In Venezuela

This initial generosity was fueled by a groundswell of early public support for the acceptance and integration of displaced Venezuelans, often based on ideas of reciprocity, given the large-scale migration from countries such as Colombia to Venezuela. However, the welcoming approach will soon give way to greater public skepticism and political withdrawal after the number of Venezuelans has increased significantly in most countries in 2019 and 2020. Regional politics also play a role in political decisions.

The data presented below was collected by the Migration Policy Institute between 2017 and 2021. These are the US counties with the most Venezuelans:
