This year Costa Rica has seen a huge surge in both immigrants from Cuba and Africa.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the Obama Administration might be behind the recent change in Costa Rica’s immigration policies:

The Cuban migration crisis exploded late last year when Costa Rica cracked down on a people-smuggling network, unleashing a chain reaction during which Nicaragua and then Panama closed their southern borders to undocumented Cubans.

Here’s a recent news report about the new change in immigration policy toward’s illegal immigrants in Costa Rica.
