Mexico 'no-visa' policy led to increase in Brazilian migration to U.S.

Though Mexico's decision to allow Brazilians into the country without visas was intended to promote tourism and business, it led to a sharp increase in the number of Brazilians using the country as an entry point for illegal immigration into the United States. The policy, implemented 5 years ago, will now be revoked at the urging of U.S. officials. (Los Angeles Times)

The U.S. asked Mexico to reinstate visa controls with Brazil for fear of terrorists. I'm trying not to roll my eyes.
