People stand on line to show customs identification documents from Venezuela to enter into Cucuta, Colombia, on Monday, Sept. 18, 2017. For weeks, Venezuelans have been flocking by the busload to San Antonio del Tachira, a border town of some 62,000 residents, fleeing as President Nicolas Maduro consolidates autocratic power. According to Colombia's migration authority, the number of foreigners entering Cucuta, the first major city across the bridge, more than doubled this summer.
