Have new work visas for Americans been suspended?

Posted in Mexico forum

I have travelled to Mexico as a college teacher for the last few years and this year it requires a visa with permission to work — not a renewal. After waiting newly the entire fall semester, my HR guys tell me that they believe Mexico has suspended/stopped giving any new work visas to Americans. They aren’t getting any statuses and have no end in sight. They process many dozens of visas a year, very few for Americans so I am not sure how much weight to give to their comments. Does anyone have data on how long it’s taking to get new visas since the Mexican presidential elections of 2018?
