Well, first we need to establish what Mexico does to illegals crossing from Guatamala and points south. You can also google the Mexican stance on
illegals, and what happens to those caught.
Mexican government whines and blusters about how we feed, give medical treatment, and transport back illegals caught, but have no aversion to shooting
those crossing their southern border, and imprisoning without food or representation those caught inside.
If you still want to become a citizen of Mexico, you need to relax your attitude about honest bribery, and realize that even after you bribe your way
through the process and receive your citizenship, about 1/2 the rights and benefits of born Mexicans will be withheld from you interlopers by law.
Mexico does have an excellent process for employing the poor and removing the dregs----they send them north.
I do have several well educated Mexican immigrant friends who went through the long and arduous process of becoming U.S. citizens legally.
You should talk to one of them and ask how they feel about those who enter illegally and get benefits that they, as citizens now, are unable to
I can assure you that those who went through the process legally have a MUCH stronger stance on illegals than the common citizen.
The best of both worlds can be had by keeping your U.S. citizenship, and "buying" a retiree status in Mexico. The bribes are reasonable, the
process short and sweet, and the benefits are good. You only have to prove a couple grand a month income per couple (deposited in a Mexican bank) and
meet the age requirements ( 50 or 55, I don't remember offhand) and a blue collar retiree with a minimum income can retire in comfort in any of
hundreds of expatriate communities throughout the country.
Outside the resort communities, a single person can retire like a noble on 3 grand a month with housekeepers, gardeners and a cook.
That is my intention, but if you wish to try, I highly suggest a few months holiday to see if you can shed your northern way of thinking----wanting
things NOW, aversion to shelling out a few shekels to the local police, flushing TP down the toilet (it goes in the trash basket), drinking water out
of the tap, and the unattainable attitude of sanitation in anything.
Clean? Mostly, but sanitary, not. If you can give up your attitude about Montezuma's revenge and hepatitis, and learn to take siestas you may enjoy
