"They think Mexico, especially San Miguel de Allende, is an extension of their country," group member Arturo Morales Tirado said of the Americans who call San Miguel home. "It's not and won't be, no way."

Tough luck whiners, deal with it. Or maybe you should tell your government to take back the millions of whiny, arrogant, delusional illegal alien tax drainers and breeders that have invaded America.

Welcome to America. I'm sure it's far more civilized than what you're used to . . . .
Well -- I understand that feeling those Mexicans have.

The other thing, there's a difference between the proud Mexicans who live in their country and the ones who act like living in Mexico is like hell but pretend to love their country.

So, it's not as if people are bopping down there demanding to be accommodated.The entrepreneurs in Mexico are appealing to and marketing the idea to THEM. I don't know how building and zoning works in Mexico but if the locals are unhappy then they need to take it up with their local authorities and developers.

They sound just like the types who benefit from illegals coming here. Many want their ultra cheap labor and they don't care one iota what it does to the country.

It's all about greed -- both those in Mexico who would sell out their own country and those in the USA who would sell out the USA. They're all a bunch of Judas's, betrayers.

Actually their concerns are not at all related to issues of being American. It is the same issue that plagues Santa Barbara and many coastal cities in California. Are beaches public or private? So really the parallels are not at all the same. They are complaining, much in the same vain as people in Carpinteria, CA have complained, about beach access. It seams that this is crux of the article. Also, transplants from boom areas have pushed real estate values up in Mexico and other areas of America (for example Californian transplants moving to Colorado have increased the prices for homes in Denver in past years).

It really has nothing to do with being an American or not, rather, it has to do with beaches and affordability. At least in this article.

this is old news. yall are late with this.

the real issue of course is that these "gringos", as you guys call them, are driving up the real estate prices and the cost of living. its making those poor people even more poor. and then you guys wonder why they come this way in search of opportunities.

its a more complex issue. but if all you guys offer are "he shoots he scores"...

Well: it is the responsibility of the Mexican government to control what occurs with their nation.

I agree, maybe it is because we don't have a huge amount of people living illegally, there are a lot though, but I doubt they are more than one million, maybe less than 500,000, but the Mexican government usually makes immigration and investment easy for foreigners who want to settle in Mexico or start business, there are talks right now in congress to reform laws so that American and Canadian citizens are able to buy property near coastal areas, if someone is interested I'll translate the article.

Regards

How can Americans be driving up real estate for the average Mexican if they cannot buy near the border or beach or use it for a residential area? I could be wrong but that's how I'm reading it. a trust can be revoked at any time so that is a very bad option and I would think few would bite on that.

There are legal loops that skilled attorneys use to get away with foreigners adquiring property near coastal areas, they use something called fideicomiso, where a bank "buys" the property and "leases" it to you, theoretically speaking the property owner is the bank, but the one who uses it, lives on it, etc is you, because of this congress is debating to reform laws so foreigners are able to own land near coastal areas, I'm gonna translate it and put it in the Mexico forum ok?
