As an Arizona woman has discovered, that may not be a good idea. She bought one in Rocky Point, Mexico, moved in, and figured she was set for her golden years. As it turns out, not so much: a Mexican court has ordered her out; they're giving her condo to some Mexican workers. And there's nothing she can do about it.
"The court ruled, yes, they know we owned the property, there's no doubt about that," said Peckenpaugh. "But as foreigners, we have no rights in Mexico."
There ought to be some sort of reciprocity demanded; we give Mexicans who are here illegally everything from food stamps to driver's licenses, and still they demand more from us. Mexico treats Americans precisely the opposite.
We ought to insist on no more in-state college tuition and no more freebies until Mexican governments do better by Americans.
