    Went to restaurant "Patat" yesterday evening. Simple, rustic outdoor setting on the carratera in San Juan Cosala. Address: Carr Jocotepec-Chapala 612 Limited menu but excellent food. Choice of onion rings, french fries, fat fries or waffle fries as a base, with a variety of meat toppings, covered with a cheese sauce. I had the arrachera with the waffle fries. Excellent! The fries were crispy on the outside, and tender inside - perfect combination. The arrachera was tender. The drizzling of cheese sauce did not overwhelm the flavor of the dish. I tried my dining partner's onion rings - delish! All this accompanied by Strongbow cider. Days Open - Wednesday thru Sunday Hours - 6:30 p.m. to midnight
  2. When does the Chapala office open for payment of property taxes? Thanks.
  3. I too use a U.S. credit card. The outstanding amount on the bill is debited to my credit card on a recurring basis.
  4. I am definitely not ignorant, as shown by you own posting of the process of applying for refugee status. And yes, there is a process, which is not at the border Mexican.U.S. border.
  5. What difference does that make? I am here now, and that is all that matters.
  6. The main difference is choice. Simply speaking, a migrant is someone who chooses to move, and a refugee is someone who has been forced from their home. ... Migrants, on the other hand, may move for any number of reasons. Some of them move to be with family or for economic reasons Here are the requirement to apply for refugee status to the U.S.: https://www.alllaw.com/articles/nolo/us-immigration/how-to-prepare-submit-refugee-application.html Most of the people showing up at the Mexican/U.S. border want to move to the U.S. for economic reasons. They are not refugees. Anyone who wants to apply to legally emigrate to the U.S., refugee or otherwise, must do so from their home country.
  7. I moved here because my partner wished to live in Mexico. I was quite happy in the United States. If one is happy in a relationship, it requires compromise.
  8. Each person is entitled to their own opinion. They are not entitled to their own facts. That includes you. Please post videos that are fair and balanced.
  9. Yes, I have watched the video. To each his own. Is that why people are lining up in droves to get into the U.S.? Those people who do not think so, let them queue up to go somewhere else.
  10. So why doesn't Canada want these immigrants?
  11. Please, do what you think is best in your own interest. In the meantime, I want to pursue the truth.
  12. Most of the people at the U.S./Mexico border are not refugees. They want to enter the U.S. because they want economic benefits. If they are truly refugees, let them return to their countries of origin, and apply for refugee status.
  13. I have no desire to move to Canada. It is the last county in the world that I would want to move to. I am a proud American, the best country in the world.
  14. You are conflating one problem with another.
  15. Canada wants "well qualified" immigrants who will be economically productive rather than draining their social welfare system.
  16. I am not minimizing what you're doing in this localized area. Just pointing out that Canada needs to do more for all the immigrants fleeing their countries. There are many at the U.S. southern border that Canada could be taking in. Help these people please.
  17. Please brush up on your international law. A minuscule number of the immigrants at the U.S. southern border are refugees. The rest want to go to the U.S. for economic reasons.
  18. My knowledge of both geography and language is excellent. Please note I used the word "transport" in my sentence. That includes land, air, or any other mode of transport. Canada can use any mode of transportation to move illegal immigrants from the U.S.'s southern border to Canada. It would alleviate the problem there, and Canada will have an opportunity to show it's generosity.
  19. Canada welcomes immigrants but only well qualified one's need apply. Canada to welcome up to 390,000 in 2022. https://www.cicnews.com/2020/03/canada-to-welcome-up-to-390000-immigrants-in-2022-0313872.html#gs.174tin What about illegal immigrants? Like the one's the U.S. is taking in at it's southern border. Send some transport down there and help out. Take them up north to make Canada their home and help them out with your wonderful social welfare programs.
  20. Next time, when you you have a moment, check out how much foreign aid is given by the U.S. government, not just to Mexico but also other countries. Also how much aid is given by American charitable foundations to foreign countries.
