Argentina restricts immigration from poor South American countries

Argentina has toughened its stance on immigration, deterring migrants from some of the poorest countries in South America. “Faced with the recent notorious acts of organized crime, the government has had enormous difficulties in enacting deportation orders against foreign nationals as a result of the complex, repetitive procedures that in some cases can take seven years to process,” said President Mauricio Macri of policy changes implemented by emergency presidential decree on Jan. 27.
