PANAMA.- Panama announced that they will not close the borders to the passage of migrants, after the US began to implement a new measure to contain the arrival of Venezuelan migrants illegally.

Regarding the new US immigration measure, the Panamanian official maintained that the US “has always had policies on illegal migration,” but “people have always passed through,” for which he considered that “this (the measure) is not going to discourage a number of people and there will always be people who are going to take that risk.

The new immigration measure that came into force on Wednesday, October 12, establishes special permission for Venezuelans who enter the US through airports, although they must prove they have an economic sponsor, in addition to passing a series of biometric security tests, as well as having the required vaccinations. The Joe Biden Administration announced that it will accept only 24,000 people and will exclude those deported from the US in the last five years or people who have entered Panama or Mexico irregularly.
