“LEGAL COMMENTS MADE BY A FORMER FEDERAL DELEGATE OF THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF MIGRATION OF MEXICO, ON THE REFUSAL OF ENTRY BY THE OFFICIALS OF THE INM TO FOREIGNERS”
RTAG has on retainer a Mexico City law firm, Luis Fernandez Vargas, discussing with former Mexican Authorities the legality of their Guardian Angel Program – http://www.banderasnews.com/1405/nb-mexico-guardian-angel-program.htm. These efforts may lead to legal action in Mexican immigration courts.
1. Without giving registrants REJECTION ACT in writing, keeping them incommunicado and not see a trusted person or their own lawyer. All the above are illegal and unconstitutional acts under the Chapter of Human Rights (Individual Guarantees) enunciated in the Magna Carta of Mexico.
2. INM official reviewed criminal due process carried out in Mexican the courts as it pertains to the Guardian Angel Program. Bearing in mind that a general principle of law is that NOBODY CAN BE TRIALED TWICE FOR THE SAME CRIME, it is very questionable to exercise the discretionary refusal based on the above, therefore said refusal is subject to Indirect Amparo.
3. The Mexican constitution states that every act of the authority must be in writing, however, the foreigner who is denied entry is NEVER given the act of rejection.
4. The Mexican constitution takes precedence over all treaties and agreements between Mexico and other foreign government. Guardian Angel violates due pocess, ex post facto, and equality before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law.
5. Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.
6. No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Mexico federal response to Angel Watch – Interview
Awesome update about Mexico, hopefully they’ll take action to put a stop to this and hopefully other Latin American countries as well will follow through and not give in to US demand of denying entry of travelers that are on the registry.
Please keep up the good work. All of us on the registry would love to travel where ever we want. Lets all fight against the U.S on denying us from traveling.
What is the update with this? What is next step in the process for attacking this law and making it so SO who aren’t a threat will be allowed to travel?
Is this an official policy of Mexico to block all registered sex offenders are is it an underground rule? They check passports at airports, but are they also checking at border crossings. Is there a Mexican Law barring us from entry?
@paul. The US government (mainly angel watch) let’s them know way before even stepping foot off the airplane. They know your coming and what flight because of this.(the 21 day Megan’s law) Does Mexico deny everyone entry? Yes… Should they? NO…. Will they do whatever they want? Absolutely….. You really really want to go to Mexico? Gain residency/citizenship in another country outside of sorna jurisdiction. Fly and use your new passport from said country and enjoy Mexico. Only way will happen anytime soon unfortunately… P.S. Germany doesn’t give 2 sh#ts what America is doing or think of people. You would be more than likely welcomed. Just be sure to give local state the 21 day notice. Best of luck 👍
You can learn how to sail relatively quickly, and then buy a bluewater sailboat to sail around this really small rock we are marooned on! Many of us have, and they just stamp your U.S. Passport, OR don’t have your Passport stamped, reminiscent of “Catch Me IF You Can!” Just hoist that Country’s Flag! You can ALWAYS use the officially recognized “I need to perform extensive repairs on my boat” as an excuse, of which they must allow you into the country!
It’s JUST A THOUGHT!
My husband is a low level offender his crime was over 25 years ago it didn’t involve children or a young woman. He got permission from his I guess PO even though he hasn’t committed any crimes in over 25 years but in Florida no matter what you have to register for life. He got written permission and did everything the laws in Mexico and Florida tell you to do to be able to travel to Mexico he was taking his dad for a deep sea fishing trip he rented a boat 5 star hotels etc trip cost us between $7-8K. They get off the plain get the luggage go through customs and of course he was flagged they brought him to the back room and interrogated him for 4 hours and finally said nope not allowed entry so they had to wait 3 hours for a flight needless to say he was extremely pissed off. But what I find weird is every time we go on a cruise to Mexico he never has any problems so WT H?
I find it interesting that your Husband can even go on any cruise at all from what I have read. I am happy that you can at least go on a cruise but why would you want to live in Florida and be on the registry when living in Ga is like not being on the registry at all? I have to register once a year and from what your telling me about your husbands conviction,, I see no reason why he would have any difficulty in being removed from the registry here in Ga.
I am an RSO in California. Since 2010. I went on a cruise to Mexico last January 2020. Yes, you can.
Correct. Florida is the absolute worst state to live on the registry. Do not even come to visit or you will be put on the registry for a very very long time if not forever when just visiting for a few days. My advice. If you want to stay in America look at some less harsher states to live in and wait to get taken off depending on time or fingers crossed to see Megan’s law/registry completely removed….look up in history the last time people had special identifiers and special paperwork/passports. The Jewish people controlled by the Nazis…. Also will add unless you are native American this really is not “our county”… It is a melting pot of different ethnicities and cultures….. If you can move to another country. Do so!!!!!!. A good start in some European countries. Make sure of course to let your state know 21 days before leaving the country. Get off the plane. Start your new life and walk around with no restrictions and real freedom!!!! America is nothing more than a joke and filled with greed now of days.the registry/laws only exists for states to get a peace of the absurd government funding. Only sheep don’t see it or understand.
I moved to Florida from California. I was naive and didn’t know registration changes by state. In California I plead to only 10 year registration. Does that change? Moving to Florida?????
Yes it does. You can contact Florida Action Committee https://floridaactioncommittee.org/
I’m sorry to say but moving to Florida was THE dumbest move you could have possibly made! To my knowledge and anyone feel free to correct me but Florida is BY FAR THE WORST STATE FOR SEX OFFENDERS!!!!! And their rules are among the most stringent in the entire world!!!! Needless to say yes you made a bad move, sorry to say! You should really watch the YouTube channel Common Sense Laws. He left (or rather escaped) from Florida and moved to Germany and is now a huge activist for RSO’s who desire to leave the United States in search of a better in Europe. Frankly, I belive EVERYONE RSO OR NOT should watch his videos and subscribe to his channel!!!!
David, Florida is bad, but it is not the worst place to be convicted of a sex offense. Actually Wisconsin is the worst. Florida will keep your name on their registry, but you don’t have to do anything once you leave that state. Wisconsin requires a person to keep registering and updating their information…even if that person moves overseas! At least with Florida, you can move to a state that doesn’t publicize your information and stay anonymous. But if you are from Wisconsin, you will never stay anonymous because you have to keep updating your new address, and private watchdog groups will get a hold of it from the national registry.
NEW YORK STATE WILL ONLY ACCEPT YOUR FEDERAL NOTICE THREE TO FOUR DAYS BEFORE YOU DEPART THE COUNTRY!
Especially after 25 years…
What are the rules and laws in Georgia? I am a deregistered Level One from New York State, and I will only return to the U.S. after my twenty years is up to be deregistered from the Feds in 2031!
Why oh why. Please God, why. Why can’t I go to the Philippines with my husband who is an RSO. I’m from there and I can’t bring him. What a heartbreak this is.
You have to write a letter in the form of a Special Request to the President of the Philippines, addressed directly to Malacayang, and ask whomever the new President may be to allow a special exemption for your husband! I would seek the help of an influential lawyer in Makati to help you in this cause!
This advice came from the Director of Immigration at Cebu International Airport! They hate making RSOs return, and he, and his Assistant, a Woman, both told me that they so wish that Malacayang would overtur their participation with Angel Watch, now knowing that many of us travel to Hong Kong, and Schengen Europe instead!!!!!!!

Is Mexico going to be a “No Go”? Since 2016 I’ve been as far as Oaxaca.
3 x San Jose del Cabo. No problem getting in but different ball of wax coming back to the states.I received my letter of revocation from State Dept.
Want me to send it back and refile ,plus $110 for new passport with the Sex offense against a child stamp. I’ve been speaking with an atty. He doesn’t believe that I’ve travelled this much to Mexico. He wants me to go for removal from the Oregon registry $6500 fee. I just don’t know. I was thinking of just getting the “covered” passport and talk to the Mexican consulate myself. Even if you are no longer required to register you still have to let Mexico know your coming….Good luck to you all and I’m so sorry that you have to continue to suffer through the quagmire that is US federal ignorance bliss…sheesh
Why would you be required to let Mexico know you are coming? If you aren’t on the registry and if you’ve never been to Mexico as a RSO, they wouldn’t know about your past offense.
If I’m understanding correctly, a few workarounds would be to either sail to Mexican waters and they’ll likely let you in, or fly into Mexico from a country with more relaxed laws like Germany or Italy (just examples)?
I went through the process of being removed from the SOR and have still been denied entry to Mexico. I have tried 3 times and denied all 3 times. I lived in Mexico for a year in 2012. I have decided there are better places to travel to and won’t attempt Mexico ever again
Scott, your post is pretty discouraging. I’m considering not trying to fly into Cancun this week for a friend’s wedding. If what you’re saying is true, I don’t want my denial to be hanging over my friend’s head on his wedding day. Rather wait for him to get back and give him a hug. Thanks for your input.
All, I’m curious if anyone has had any luck living in Mexico, not just traveling, as a current registrant in the US. I may have the option to move there for a year or so in the coming two years, and I’m feeling discouraged from even trying to visit for a week. Sounds like skipping over there from a Schengen country may be a better bet…
I’d love to hear anyone’s feedback.
