Great Videos to share from the U.S. Consulate General in Ciudad Juarez on what to expect when going to the Consulate for a visa interview as well as a video on how to avoid people who engage in unlawful practices outside the consulate, such as people who sell false documents.
Here are links to both videos:
Despite the deployment of thousands of Mexican soldiers and a reinforced contingent of Federal Police ostensibly to suppress the criminal gangs, violence has only worsened in Ciudad Juarez since January 2008, when the long-simmering drug war exploded in fury. More than 4,600 people have been slain, and anywhere from 30,000 to 420,000 people have fled from a city that was nudging 1.5 million inhabitants prior to the war, according to wildly varied estimates.
We always tell our clients to be very careful when spending time in the City before and during the visa interviews.
