Re: [esperanza] Questions and Concerns about Foreigners in Mexico

Well I don't know if they have an "online forum" per say, just because I haven't taken the time to look for one, but the Mexicans definitely have organized groups who help others find their way into Canada and the USA by sometimes taking advantage of our systems, finding loopholes, illegally crossing and/or illegally residing. Hence the new Visas required for Mexicans to visit Canada. And I won't even get into the other nationalities who help each other get into Canada and USA only to also find ways to exploit our very generous Welfare, Medicare, Government Housing etc. It's been happening forever. Atleast the expats who are moving to Mexico are not going there in order to "feed off the systems which are funded by the taxes paid by the citizens". Expats who choose to live in Mexico have to pay for their own housing, medical care, groceries etc., and in general fend for themselves. They cannot fall on the Mexican government for these things. So whether they find ways around little things here and there, they are still helping the Mexican economy more than they would by not being there, and they are not burdening them whatsoever, which is really what is the most important thing, I think.

We are all human and thankfully the majority do not break the law in areas that will "hurt others". It's a big "overly governed" world made necessary thanks to a huge population that the world cannot in fact support. We could go on and on, but this Forum is for people to discuss "Mexico" and its no secret that in general Mexico is not well known for it's law-abiding society. So I truly think it's simply a matter of learning how to deal with "the way it is in Mexico".
