Colombians living in the U.S. might sway a peace deal to end a decadeslong conflict back home.
On Monday, Colombia's government signed a deal with rival the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, to end a conflict that's killed thousands and displaced millions — some of whom have fled to the U.S.
This follows a cease-fire from June. Negotiations with FARC started in 2012.
Hundreds of thousands of Colombians living in communities across the U.S. are likely to weigh in and — due to the sheer number of displaced residents — that could sway the vote.
The deal is expected to go to a vote Sunday.
