Mexico Suspends Fast-Track Visa Program

Mexico has suspended its fast track visa program as the influx of Central American migrants continues to grow.

Fox News confirmed the information saying no more visas will be given.

Reports claim Mexico has received 12,600 visa applications within the last couple of weeks.

When the migrants arrive in Mexico they can apply for asylum status for up to one year after filling out a form which has the nation they are from, their gender and age.

Though they are not required to give their name, they are given shelter, blankets, and hot food when they arrive.

Another caravan is expected to leave Honduras on February 16, ultimately headed for the United States.
