The Mexican border is quite different from the Canadian one.
There are lot of horror stories about foreigners, legal or not; being denied
re-entry at the Mexican-USA border on one technicality or another.
The minimum hassle to expect is a very long delay. The worst, detention and
forcible deportation to your home country. This is not worth the cheap
thrills of a visit to TJ or anywhere else in Mexico. Even American citizens
have been turned back for lack of sufficient documentation. Remmber the
movie 'Born In East-LA'? That was based on several such incidents.
I used to run a vacation condo complex in San Diego County and had to go and
rescue tourists, students and temporary expert workers all the time from the
clutches of the US Border Patrol at San Ysidro or Otay Mesa!
BTW: Mother Teresa rated TJ 'the most miserable place on earth', i e worse
than the slums of her Calcutta! Traffic, filth, and street crime, petty and
big, are too dangerous to submit your family to. Rip-offs everywhere.
