Thousands of undocumented Cuban migrants are stranded in Panama, straining humanitarian agencies amid fears that the United States' immigration policy could soon change. According to Panamanian government figures, there are more than 2,700 Cuban migrants in the country. About 1,400 of those are in one camp in Paso Canoas, a border town that spills into neighboring Costa Rica. In the sweltering heat, the wait for answers is stifling. According to NBC News, it's an unfolding crisis for the region. For decades, the enduring images of Cuban refugees had been those risking the dangerous journey to America by sea. Now, many are attempting the risky journey by land. They fly to South American countries, then trudge through Central America, through Mexico, and into the United States. But late last year, Nicaragua shut its border, causing thousands of undocumented migrants to be stranded in Costa Rica. Now, Costa Rica has closed its border, spawning a new bottleneck in Panama.
