Central Americans live the Mexican dream

Monday, December 5, 2016


Estimates of how many Central Americans are living in Mexico are hard to come by, in part because some have obtained forged Mexican identity documents. But statistics show more and more are staying legally by seeking political asylum or humanitarian visas.

Asylum applications in Mexico nearly tripled over three years, hitting 3,424 in 2015. Asylum requests this year are poised to be twice that, human rights advocates say, with most filed by Hondurans and Salvadorans.
