Mexico’s Interior Minister Adán Augusto López Hernández has stated that the United States will issue 150,000 temporary work visas to Mexicans and migrants currently in Mexico. An additional 150,000 visas will go to people in Central American countries, López Hernández said. The minister added that a formal announcement about the temporary work scheme will be made during President López Obrador’s visit to the White House next month.
López Obrador has long been pushing for the United States to offer temporary work visas to Central Americans in order to stem illegal migration to the U.S. López Hernández said that the federal government speaks to its U.S. counterpart about migration issues every day.
