Part 2 of 4: Immigration Series
Understanding the Changes
At the beginning of his mandate the President of México, Licenciado FELIPE DE JESÚS CALDERÓN HINOJOSA, send to the legislators a request to have new Immigration rules. Legislators worked hard to write a new Immigration Law that would indicate with clarity the powers of immigration officers. The goal was to remove much of the discretionary powers, provide human rights guarantees to all who enter Mexico, be it legally or illegally, foreigner or Mexican. The new law is in accordance with the international conventions and treaties and, the dispositions in the country´s Carta Magna.
