UPDATE: The U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez Mexico will Reopen Tomorrow

UPDATE: The U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez Mexico will reopen tomorrow.
The U.S. Consulate General in Ciudad Juarez processed over 94,000 immigrant visas and over 144,000 non-immigrant visas in FY2009. Given the temporary closing of the Consulate, all visa applicants will be rescheduled for their interviews at a later date.

ORIGINAL STORY:
  The U.S. has temporarily closed its consulate offices in the border city of Ciudad Juarez until further notice for a undefined “security review”.  The consulate had already authorized relatives of consulate employees to leave for Mexico as a safety precaution due to escalating violence from drug cartels some aimed at consulate employees.
