If the situation is reversed, what can you expect if you illegally enter Mexico. I found this answer on Slate.com very interesting.
"They're pretty strict, but not often enforced. Until recently, entering Mexico without proper documentation was a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison, as codified in the country's General Law of Population. (Undocumented immigrants in the United States are held in detention centers until they're deported. They don't get a jail sentence unless they've committed other crimes.) In 2008, that penalty was reduced to a fine of up to 5,000 pesos, or about $400. If you're caught with fake documents, the Ministry of the Interior can fine you twice that. In most cases, undocumented immigrants are "voluntarily repatriated," or asked to leave the country. If they're caught again, they're fined again and frequently deported. In practice, though, high levels of corruption mean that police will often take bribes from undocumented immigrants--and sometimes even rob them--instead of sending them home. (The punishments were reduced in 2008 partly because police were using the heavy penalty as leverage for extortion.)
Mexican law determines who's allowed to immigrate "according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress." That means scientists, athletes, artists, and other people with special abilities are given preference. So are investors who want to start a business in Mexico. The country makes it easy for Americans to retire there by waiving tariffs when they move their belongings. (The United States sends more immigrants to Mexico than any other country does.) [...]"
One thing I've read and been told many times is that the police down there are corrupt ... and apparently proud of it.
I currently reside in California's Imperial Valley, about 10 minutes by car from Mexicali, Baja California. I plan to move even closer to the border once this lease runs out. Hotter than hell in the summer, but not a bad spot to be overall. Mexico has everything you need and a whole lot more! Not as cheap as it used to be(prices for hotels and most mainline consumer goods seem to be lo mismo que el otro lado) but still great.
to the canuck above-what is wrong with Quebec? I loved it the few times I went, still want to see Quebec City. I thought Montreal was leaps and bounds better than Toronto-and most cities in the U.S. for that matter...
I wouldnt go to mexico now, Juarez, Nuevo laredo, and matamoros are all war zones
The problem I have with Jones is he'll start of OK then the Skull and Bones and Illuminati crap comes in. Its like pointing out feminism is bad then blaming it on Big Foot. Fact is the universe is not teleological and there isn't a star chamber of old men deciding everyone's fate. That's a religion by any other name.
No problem. A lot of people have issue with Alex Jones and hence won't watch or take this seriously.
To them I would say that you can't argue with the fact that senior members of the administration are recorded here on film for posterity making outrageous statements that are difficult to believe. Did he just say that??
Whether or not you agree with Alex Jones you need to watch this video, just for the sound bites - they aren't faked.
Mac OS is much better!
Windows puts food on my table because it breaks all the time and people pay me to fix it.
Keep using windows I like money !
Great. If I don't want any apps or software I will switch to MAC.
QuoteMichael Moore is a douchebag
I love the "men do more bad so be more beware of them" yet I seriously doubt Mr. Moore would advocate being more afraid of black men.
