While the U.S. ratchets up pressure on illegal immigrants, more Americans are overstaying their visas and living illegally in Mexico. But unlike the U.S., Mexican authorities aren’t doing anything about it. (CGTN America)

U.S. born citizens are the biggest immigrant group in Mexico.

The U.S State Department estimates one million Americans currently live in Mexico, and a majority are living illegally.

But because the process can be complicated and time-consuming, many foreigners continue to stay in the country even after their visas expire.
