    The laws for being in Mexico without the proper documents are criminal, and very severe, while the laws for being undocumented in the US are civil violations and the punishment is deportation. I have always found it puzzling that Mexico lobbies so hard for lenient immigration to the US and lots of due process for undocumented Mexicans who enter the US, while maintaining very harsh immigration laws itself.
