Re: Cost of a visa

Yes, Mexico wants visitors from the U.S. and Canada. I don't know Canada's position, but I do know that la migra in my part of the U.S., California, is definitely adverse to Mexican's trying to enter. The U.S. has become irrationally concerned with Mexican immigration. I have no knowledge of terrorist acts performed by Mexicans against Americans, but I think it is easier for a Saudi Arabian to enter the country than someone from Mexico. (I don't remember anyone from Mexico involved in 9-11. but several from Saudi Arabia). Go figure.

When I lived in California, maybe 40% of my town was of Mexican heritage. I have a Mexican daughter in law, and three grandchildren that are wholly or partly Mexican.

I just don't get it.
