Any bad thing that happens will happen in a non-discriminatory manner, doesn't matter if one is a tourist, local, citizen or not. This is an important point for those who insist that trouble is between locals or narcos and your average good guy is exempt( we can make that another thread).Its my understanding that the Paisano program is set up to welcome the huge numbers of Mexicans who live outside Mexico and are returning for the holiday, or even to stay for good. If a Mexican citizen returned to Mexico and was, for example, assasinated, you could say with true sarcasm: Welcome Compatriot, my butt. If I have a poor, or just plain wrong impression of the program it doesn't affect the sarcastic usage of the term.
It would be best if "Bienvenido Paisano" is stricken from the original post.
