Brazilian Immigration


Mexico may reinstate a visa requirement for Brazilians to help stem the flow of immigrants crossing through the country and entering the U.S. illegally as they flee the South American nation's poverty.

The government is reconsidering the rule, dropped five years ago, said Hermenegildo Castro, a spokesman for the National Immigration Institute in Mexico City.

Illegal crossings through Mexico by Brazilians have climbed ninefold since the rule was eliminated, making South America's biggest country the fastest growing source of unauthorized entries, according to the U.S. Homeland Security Department.
