Yup, after an accident on Blvd 2000, Rosarito police. Wanted proof of immigration status. Also at Federal Police checkpoint at jct of Hwy 5 and Hwy 3, north of San Felipe

Do the police have any enforcement authority over immigration status?

Baja Bound has already dispelled the rumors that Mexican auto insurance is nullified by the lack of a tourist card. Not an excuse for not getting one, we are already clear that we are supposed to have one. Let's just base information on facts.

Has anyone here been asked to show their tourist card by anyone other than INM officers, as they once did near Guerrero Negro?

The question is what if you get in an accident and the cop asks for your papers? What he will want is see is your registration, Drivers licence, and FMM.
Your experience probably will be difdferent/

Your friend is probably pulling your leg, because the FMM requirement that requires all US and Canadian citizens to have an FMM anytime they are in Mexico wasn't required until September 2015.

And your post appears this incident with your friend happened many years ago, not recently according to your post.

What crime did your friend commit in Mexico that they stopped the court process, and instead deported him?

I also don't think Mexican cops also enforce immigration policy? I would be more concerned if I got into an accident in Mexico, that I had Mexican car insurance than I would a FMM filled out.

Yes, deported a long time ago. Civil lawsuit. No crime.
Suspicious -- How to get rid of one party.

Also long time ago traffic accident all I needed was a driver license. Not my fault and the other US guy never got charged. A third party sued and got payment in a Mx court. My damages were covered by his US insurance.

Got stopped for speeding long time ago and had to provide license and registration - nothing else.
