    Peso Rate Alert

    I see it was not higher (or lower, depending on how you look at it) than right now, but above 19 most of the month.

    Peso Rate Alert

    The peso has been quoted lower than that as much as two weeks ago on XE (almost 20/1), this is not a sudden occurrence.
  3. The link below, from a year ago and before the latest minimum wage increase, said that up to seven million workers in Mexico make the minimum wage, which at that time was 1,726 pesos per month or roughly $96 U. S. at that time. This would be for a six day work week, eight hours per day if a day shift. http://www.excelsior.com.mx/nacional/2016/11/25/1130448

    Invisible clothing repair

    I assumed the post was from the emperor needing repairs for his new clothes.

    Peso on the Move ... Where's It Headed ?

    In the past the most calamitous drops have been followed by a short and slight rebound, which was probably why you were advised to buy at 22/1.

    Peso on the Move ... Where's It Headed ?

    Down, as it has done since 1976. The dollar itself is down at the moment against other major currencies, which conceals some of the peso's slide.

    MX Peso fell below 18 to 1 usd

    The peso has charted a sawtooth downward curve against the dollar since about 1976 and I think it is a safe prediction it will continue that way over the long term.
  9. The more usual situation in Mexico is that there are "aviadores" who appear on the payroll but not on the job, only landing to collect their pay.

    Nacimiento natural

    If that is the context then it indeed means that the parents were not married. I'm surprised that nearly all births were so listed, though.

    cost of living

    Euro coins and banknotes did not go into circulation in Spain until that date but Spain was effectively on the euro since several years earlier. The peseta had been frozen in relation to other euro zone currencies, and all prices were shown in both pesetas and euros.

    Big police action (maybe)?

    http://semanariolaguna.com/26048/ At about 4:00pm there was a confrontation between armed subjects and members of the Regional "Fuerza Única" police unit at Kilometer 5 on the highway to Jocotepec. A Tundra pickup was seized there and reportedly five persons were shot down. Apparently the armed civilians opened fire on the Fuerza Única officers. First reports are that the operation by Fuerza Única was begun due to the disappearance yesterday of a state policeman who worked at Casa Jalisco, the residence of Governor Aristóteles Sandoval. According to early reports, in the confrontation in the Delegation of El Molino at least two people fled on a motorcycle and personnel from the State Prosecutor's Office deployed a search operation in the area. After the clash the Prosecutor's Office seized a pickup, a shoulder weapon, five short weapons and two grenades, the newspaper El Informador reported. According to the police officer who was interviewed, Jocotopec Municipal Police did not take part in the confrontation between the gunmen and Fuerza Única because when they arrived at the scene of the shootout they were prohibited from entering. Five people died in that confrontation. According to sources in the State Prosecutor's Office, the state policeman was last seen leaving his home in the community of Huejotitán, Jocotepec and was found dead in the vicinity of where the shootout occurred, reported Notisistema. The young man on the motorcycle has still not been located. It is not known if the two incidents are related.

    Wouldn't a tax on money sent outside the U. S. violate the "no export tax" provision of the Constitution?
  14. It seems this happens every year without fail somewhere in Mexico.

    Nationality of Criminal Deportees - U.S.A.

    The only alternative would be by ship as non-citizens of Mexico can't be deported to that country, except in the highly unusual situation that they are legal residents of that country and the Mexican government accepts them.
