2 months ago, Registrant Travel Action Group, Inc (RTAG) put on retainer a Mexican Immigration lawyer and an American/Mexican lawyer
to wrtite a report examining Mexican authorities application and enforcement of the Gaurdian Angel program. Working with Matt Ameika
( https://www.ameikadespachodeinmigracion.com/matthew-ameika-eng ) and Luis Fernandez of Mexico City, we present the attached report.
This report is the foundation in an atteptto reverse the effects of Guardian Angel program. For example, I provide the following item in the
report of interest:
POLITICAL CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED MEXICAN STATES (CARTA MAGNA)
Article 14. No law shall be retroactive to the detriment of any person. No one may be deprived of liberty or his property, possessions, or rights, without a trial followed before previously established courts, which comply with the essential formalities of the procedure in accordance with previously issued Laws.
THE ANGEL GUARDIAN PROGRAM WAS ADOPTED AFTER THE CRIMINAL ACTS OF SOME POTENTIAL CLIENTS, AND THEREFORE IS SUBJECT TO THE GENERAL RULE OF EX POST FACTO, THAT AFTER THE FACT LAWS ARE PREJUDICIAL TO A CLIENT. THEREFORE, IT MAY BE THAT THE ANGEL GUARDIAN PROGRAM IS A VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS. HOWEVER, IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT THE SAME LAW OF MIGRATION, THAT “No law shall be retroactive to the detriment of any person”ALSO INDICATES THAT THOSE WITH CRIMINAL RECORDS MAY ENDANGER MEXICAN NATIONAL SECURITY.
Overall, we have the following objectives:
1. Investigate the Angel Guardian program in Mexico, analyzing the effects of Angel Guardian on the local, state, and especially federal level.
2. Present RTAG with a comprehensive report, outlining suggested plans of action.
3. Examine International Megan’s Law and Angel Watch in the United States and in Mexico, where possible.
4. Interview Federal government members and INM (Instituto National de Migracion) officers. INM is the government organization responsible for visitors coming into Mexico. We will examine the system of “Alerts” between Mexico and the US, so that we can understand exactly how “Alerts” are assigned to an individual entering Mexico.
5. Investigate the FBI method of reporting convicted sex crime criminals as opposed to those who are on the sex crimes registry without a conviction.
6. Communicate with and attempt to convince Mexican authorities to understand the differences between a hardened sex crime offender and someone who was arrested many years ago for a statutory age difference resulting in a sex crime conviction in the US, as well as other distinctions.

Let me know how I can assist – Deferred Sentence and Dismissed in 2010. Spent night in Cancun Airport before being put on a plane back to the US.
Same here – spent a horrible night in Mexico City before they put me on a plane back to US, while my spouse waited in fear, not knowing where they had me and what they did with me.
Going to Cancun 03/20
Should I cancel?
Depends call me
Oct 2018 sent back to the States from Mexico. I am RSO Tier 2 misdemeanor. I fought my case for 4 years. Two mistrials, dismissal of judge, then case dismissed, then retried a year later. Couldn’t do it again took plea. Please don’t judge it was 4 years of hell! no probation no jail time RSO with misdemeanor. Which that alone is hell! My fiance and I did some research made plans to go to Aruba. Anxiety through the roof! Any advice please! I can’t find embassy number I don’t want any issues! Thanks
Aruba’s foreign affairs are handled by the Kingdom of the Netherlands, so it is probably their embassy you need to call.
I have written their embassy before and got a reply but never tried calling (what I wrote about would have no bearing on your situation however.)
Aruba is good to go… I had the same issue in March of this year. I was turned away from the Philippines, Singapore,and Thailand! I was a level one in New York State, which means that I was not placed on their public computer registry, but I did have to give notice of my intent to leave the Good Ol’ U.S. of A, and I was told directly by Gary, a Homeland Security Officer in Cebu, Philippines, that they DO LIE on the WATCH ORDERS, INSTRUCTING THE FOREIGN GOVERNMENT TO REFUSE ENTRY BECAUSE THE PERSON IS WANTED BACK IN THE STATES! I actually was given my watchlist order to read. The person felt bad for me, and confirmed that every SO’s Watch List Order is worded the same way – that the SO is wanted back in the U.S… So, I flew to Hawaii instead of New York with Philippines
As Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao are Dutch Islands, they HAPPILY ADMIT us with a Welcome to the ABC’s, and Enjoy Your Stay, as does the Netherlands! After being denied entry into those countries in Southeast Asia, I spent the maximum time I could stay without registering in both Hawaii, and California. That took me to just past Midnight on April Fools Day, and I flew to Hong Kong. I was welcomed with a huge SMILE, and the words that I was never more joyous to hear – Welcome to Hong Kong, and Enjoy Your Stay! Something came up, before that, on her screen, and she exclaimed the most unpleasant “OH NO” I have ever heard, but I got a strong feeling to pull my return ticket, and I handed it to her. She smiled again, and uttered those aforementioned words! Needless to say, I will never return to the U.S.!!! It TRULY was like picking the locks of Hell, and getting out without being noticed! My original notice was still in Play as I was never admitted to any country, and it was Homeland Security’s LIE to the Government of the Philippines that caused my exclusion! When I told Gary (real name) what I knew, he laughed and said that they do word all of their notifications the same, AND that they sent the same Watch List notification to every country throughout Asia! It didn’t even phase him that Philippine Immigration had RATTED them out, because they hated that their government had capitulated to the United States just for a few hundred million dollars.
I’m curious to know more about your situation abroad as I intend to try and leave the USA as well. It is the income issue that causes me the most concern but I’m trying to make what connections abroad I can
I am tier 2 RSO, no jail time for victimless crime, one year probation 11 years ago, and no other transgressions of any kind since. I am planning a cruise of Panama Canal soon and wonder if the authorities in Panama or Mexico will hinder my travel if I stay on the ship the entire time.
My wife and I have cruised through Panama Canal twice and was off ship at all ports, including stops in Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Columbia, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Panama with no problems. We are staying with one cruise line, so that we have a history with the company and they check your passport when you board only. You do not go through any customs/immigration checkpoints on the cruises. Only when back in US, you go through Immigration/Customs. Just be sure you have a copy of the travel document signed by your local PD just in case.
I’m thinking about getting on Norwegian cruise line and cruising to Cozumel and costa maya Mexico on a 5 day cruise. Think there will be any issue?
Me too. I actually have tickets. On Norwegian
Hello – can you tell me what cruise line you are using? From what I have read, none of the cruise lines are letting RSO’s cruise. I have checked all of them. We used to use Carnival, but I read that they are not allowing RSO’s now.
Which cruise line is this
What cruise line did you go on? I thought cruises didn’t allow RSO’s on board?
Was it Norwegian by chance?
Which cruise line?
Great work; 5 won lawsuits and getting the Supreme Court to get involved rule in favor of foreign SOs is a big deal.
Thanks for this work Paul. Let me know how I can help.
I appreciate the Matrix but we need something more definite. Would be nice if everyone would just post what countries are good to go and which are not. I’ve been to Belize so far. Questioned but allowed entry. Costa Rica denied me the minute I got off the plane. We need to know which countries are good to go in order to stop wasting money. I’ve read here that Aruba is good to go. Let’s get a list going please. Thanks. I’m planning a cruise from Puerto Rico. Anyone know if that’s a problem?
Would you be willing to take on the task of developing a more detailed list from the data I have?
Paul, I would be willing to help with this if you’re willing.
What cruise line are you going on? I know that several cruise lines don’t allow RSO’s. Thank you.
When you get to Puerto Rico I will be fine. However, once you register with the local PD they will call your landlord, property manager, or hotel where you are staying at and let them know I are RSO. I had to move at the end of every month. Finally I decided to rent the room in a hostel. 2 Days later the hostel owner told me that he had received a phone call from the police department. That’s when I realized what was happening and why I had to keep moving for the past 2 months. In Puerto Rico it’s best to own the property where you’re living or at least know the owner in advance and know that it’s not going to be an issue when they find out. It wasn’t an issue at the hospital I was staying at in San Juan. However one of the employees found out after a couple months and told other guests so I left because I didn’t need to put up with that.
Terror Watch list unconstitutional….stamping passports with a scarlet letter….and government notifying countries that people on the registry are probably traveling to commit sex offenses…not so much.
I was convicted of possession of child porn and sentenced to 48mo in Federal prison with 15 yrs of probation. When I was released from prison I bought and moved on to a sailboat which I lived on while I was on probation. I was able to get 10 years cut from my probation and was released after 5 years. 5 weeks later I left the US on my sailboat. So far I have traveled to four countries and I have as yet had no issues. Before I left I followed the letter of the law and told my local police of my intention to move out of the country permanently. They in turn informed the US Marshalls and God knows what other agency of my plan to leave the US. At the time of my departure I became “non registered” in the state I was living and my registration requirements ended. Taking to the sea is something men have done for centuries for various reasons and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Best of luck to all of you.
I have been looking into this a few weeks,and looking into different boats/places to go. May I ask you some questions/advice about this off forum, am I allowed to put my email up here?
Hi Beto … A lot of people say that exile is impossible with the state of US laws. You made me fall from my chair with your story where you were able to be “non-registered” from US registry. Can I get more details? I guess you mean that the registry freezed while you are out of the country (So you won’t get in trouble with US law)? But your registrant status would be reactivated if you go back to the state? You can contact us via the Youtube channel of Steven Whitsett if you want to talk.
Hey brother thanks for the info I would like to do the same how much did you pay for boat.
Wouldn’t mind coming aboard as crew to learn the ropes,looking into buying something myself to sail around the world. Hit me back maybe we can talk.
What countries have you been to?
Everything went very very smoothly with our trip to Portugal.
There was the issue of the 21-day notice, with which I was having problems in Chicago.
A month before leaving I called the head of the Illinois State Police SOR Unit Tracie Newton (217/785-0653) and asked her what to do, since my local police department in Chicago refused to take a notification more than three days before leaving, the officer saying that he had never heard of the 21-day notice required by IML. Newton told me that the 21-day notice is “not the law” in non-SORNA compliant Illinois and that I was to follow the Illinois regulation of three days in advance notice. She assured me that no one from Illinois who does this has ever had any problem with federal marshals, etc.
I did exactly that, boarded the plane for Portugal, breezed through customs in Porto, traveled back to O’hare airport, where I got the expected X on my passport scan, but had a very light questioning (“Where are you traveling from”) and made it to baggage claim before my bags came out. Also, no baggage search: officer at that desk asked my social number, and replied go out that door and have a nice day.
(Are they getting easier, or was I just lucky?)
I will now return to local police (within three days of arriving home) and change address from Portugal to my home in Chicago.
I’m not giving advice to anyone, just reporting what happened to me. At any rate this process is specific to Illinois, and I have no idea if it also applies to other non-SORNA states.
I’m now very encouraged about returning to Europe which seems to be easy peasy, and am planning a trip with my wife to Norway next summer.
I’ll probably stick to Schengen countries — many beautiful and welcoming places to go.
Has anyone tried getting a dual citizenship to Mexico and if so would that work to get in to Mexico?
I looked into this and it was a no-go for us. Can’t remember the exact details but basically we’d both have to live there for a certain amount of time before we could apply. It wouldn’t work for us because it would affect my LPR status – I’m a Mexican citizen and my husband is a US citizen (he’s got the conviction).
My dad is a US citizen born in Guatemala City. He will be visiting Guatemala next month and was thinking about getting a Guatemalan passport to get around these silly rules.
Has anyone else attempted using passports from foreign countries to get around these restrictions?
Having a foreign passport will only reflect your status of that country who issued the passport. It won’t reflect the USA history. Having 2 passports would save us all
Well what’s new news??
Have there been any updates?
My wife and I just traveled to Germany and the Czech Republic with no problems. We traveled December 1 through the 15th 2019. We flew into Germany and then took the train to the Czech Republic. Immigration was checked in Germany with no issues. One return to the US at the end of our trip had to go through secondary checks. It was fairly quick about 10 minutes. But it also wasn’t a very busy time of day. So who knows how busy that could get. We were told that in 2020 you would be required to get a visa before traveling to Germany. I do have a new passport with identifier.
So I’m off probation and I have a misdemeanor, I have 5 years left on registry. I don’t want to get a USA passport till I’m completely off. I just got my Mexican passport today , can I fly from USA to Mexico and then when I return drive through the border into the USA with my enhanced drivers license ?
So ok we have a attorney on retainer. But what exactly does that mean? And is there any new news?
i’m getting married next year and all i want to do is travel with my new wife she doesnt know about my passed i just want to enjoy my life and live
has anyone been to Jamaica??? if so how were you treated ?????
