The US Customs and Border Protection Office (CBP) reported in November a total of 32,195 Nicaraguans who entered US territory.

It was recently learned that the United States could limit the entry of people from Nicaragua, Cuba and Haiti, who request asylum in the North American country. This measure was implemented a few months ago for Venezuelan migrants, which turned out to be a “success”, according to the authorities, in stopping mass migration.
