Vehicle Importation

Anyone care to give an interpretation of this article from a N. Laredo newspaper? Google translate leaves a bit to be desired.

The gist is that there will be no more imports under amparos.
The AMDA has a strong lobby....

CBV, does it also say that the Supreme Court ruled that the current laws are constitutional when it canceled all the Amparos? Does this mean a definitive end to "virtual importing"?

Individual or a small groups of importers in Mexicali used to get Amparos all the time for many variances and for even J built vehicles, newer than 6 year old NAFTA built vehicles, newer jet skis etc. and could nationalize them in Baja only and the owners would get special "license plates and pedimentos for Baja only nationalized vehicles" and after 6 months the owners could get regular Baja plates for national built and sold vehicles if they wanted to spend the money but not legally sell it out of Baja but many did anyway and Sinaloa, Nayarit and Michoacan registered them that way and gave them renewals every year, no problem.

The AMDA has a strong lobby....


"Son más de 54 amparos en la frontera norte para la importación de vehículos usados que se suspendieron de forma definitiva; 15 aún están pendientes."

effectively translates as:
"There were more than 54 amparos (aka Temporary Restraining Orders) for permanently importing used vehicles at the northern border which have been suspended, while the status of 15 amparos are still pending."
.
.
The article continues:
"Resaltó que los jueces no pueden ir en contra de lo dictaminado por le SCJN, por ello, los 15 amparos que están pendientes de sentencia también serán negativos y de forma definitiva ya que también se les detectó violaciones administrativas."

effectively translates as:
"(A car dealers association spokesman) stressed that judges cannot go against the SCJN (the national Supreme Court) ruling.
Around 15 amparos are pending final judgments that could have options to continue permanent imports of used cars under the amparos, but the importers using these 15 also have administrative violations of other SAT provisions, causing SAT to remove/suspend these importers from the official registry of approved importers."
.
.
“Alrededor de 15 están pendientes de la sentencia definitiva que pudieran tener opciones de seguir importando bajo amparo han incurrido en violaciones a otras disposiciones que como consecuencia el Servicio de Administración Tributaria (SAT) los ha dado de baja del padrón de importadores”, añadió el director adjunto.

translate roughly as: (re-emphasizing that the doors are still open)
"Around 15 are pending final judgments that could have options to continue importing under amparo, but their prior users have violated other SAT provisions, and as a result of the violations, the SAT has removed them from the roll of official importers”, added the (car dealers association - AMDA) assistant manager.
.
.
I select these to sentences that avoid the article's authors personal opinions, but still capture the essential content - noting that this announcement is from the car dealers association - who clearly are biased, with interests in spinning the message.

So, while 15 amparos remain, the car dealers note that the parties who filed them are no longer eligible to use them,
but the matter is not closed... (yet?)

More detailed analyses/conclusions would require seeing and reading the details of the remaining 15 amparos.

Legal questions remain open as to why the Mexican Supreme Court did not also suspend the remaining 15, implying they may still be valid. ???
