Hola, my husband is a US legal resident

for the past 29 years.
When a legal resident of US, but native
of Mexico, and are returning to visit
Mexico, you are considered a "paisano".
The Mexican consulate can help you with
all you need to know.
He will need a "credencial" which is a
photo document (ID card sorta) indicating
he is a Mexican national. One can go to
the consulate (early in the day) because
they close at 1 pm.
The Mexican natinal fills out a short form,
they take his foto, and the card is ready
Since more Mexicans return home arund this
time of the year, the Mexican government
makes a special effort to facilitate the
Mexican's visit home including the entrance
of muchos dolares into the Mexican economy.
Mexico will streamline the bringing in of
your vehicle for a visit only. It is basically
the same process as for someone entering on a
tourist visa, but for this limited holiday
time period, the Mexican govt streamlines the
process for paisanos.
If I can be of more help, please ask.
