I have yet to hear about Mexicans, getting upset that Americans, don't carry their passports, and FMM in Mexico. I have yet to hear from a Mexican President, that's makes immigration the number election issue, and then talks about deporting illegal Americans, and building walls to keep Americans out.

Isn't this a straw man argument? Clearly erroneous reasoning. If undocumented gringoes were a million deep in MX, I'm positive the MX media would be reporting it. Relax Joe this will never happen.

It is important for gringoes to have proper documentation, and this includes pets, as gringoes are judged by different standards than anyone else.

When I see video on US TV with gringo bigots screaming at people who aren't white, or speaking another language, that they should speak English (because they're in the US), or else, they should ''go back home,'' it's impossible to believe that this sad behavior would ever happen in Baja towards gringoes. At least not in the same ignorant way.

So, always have your paperwork in order, and obey the laws in Baja. And regardless of the rumors that come around like a broken record, throw away a used or expired FMM.

If I'm driving and have a FMM, I'm not go to search around to find a spot where to turn in my FMM.

That's silly, and I doubt anybody actually does that in practice.

Besides, I have read that in 2015 the INM, doesn't require you to turn in your FMM if traveling by land in Baja, and besides there is no procedure to do so.

Now of course the statement on the back may say, you must turn it in, and so you may get people, demanding that you follow the law, although it's just a blanket statement and doesn't apply to all situations.

Now if you are exiting somewhere other than the Baja US/Mexico, border, you should consult the local authorities.

And if you're traveling by airplane, you will be directed by the airlines, and Mexican officials.
