The New Immigration System by Lic. Jacques-Edouard Beaulne, LL.B.
Previously, anyone that wanted to enter Mexico, either as a tourist or for any other reason, had to fill out an FMT known as a tourist card. The maximum time one could be legally in Mexico was 180 days, but this maximum period was at the discretion of the immigration officer at point of entry. This document is no longer available, and the discriminatory factor has been removed by the new law.

Worse, one rooster crowing sets off a chain reaction and soon every rooster
