Mexico is one of the roughest places for illegal immigrants.
Mexico regards illegal immigrants as felons.
Even though the country’s rural living standards are generally poor, it has its own immigration problems. People from Cuba regularly attempt to cross its borders, and others from Central and South America emigrate there as well.
However, unlike in the U.S., people that enter Mexico illegally can endure harsh detentions, are regarded as felons and can be at any time subject to a citizens’ arrest.
