amnesty vehicular chocolate


Recommended Posts

Basically it will be a no for this legislative session. It was done in certain states because of the vast number of vehicles with foreign plates that the police had no way of verifying as to ownership, and the problem of security cameras getting useless information. There would be no security or financial for the federal govt to allow any other states the same process. 

Also note he dislikes Alfaro so he does as little as possible for Jalisco.

English Translation:

Jalisco joins the program to regularize "chocolate cars"

With the incorporation of Jalisco to this program, in the state it will be possible to regularize the "chocolate cars"

September 20, 2022 - 10:22 a.m.

The head of Security and Citizen Protection (SSPC), Rosa Icela Rodr�guez Vel�zquez, announced that 557,697 vehicles of foreign origin that were irregularly in our country have been regularized.

When presenting the Monthly Security Report, the official pointed out that this program has managed to raise 1,394 million pesos and highlighted that yesterday the presidential decree was published so that the program is extended until December 31. Likewise, she announced that the state of Jalisco has already joined the program.

"This program is initiated by instruction of the President, it is applied to models 2016 and older that are already in our country. This program has three objectives: to give legal and patrimonial certainty to families in the ownership of their vehicles; two, to remove from the anonymity to foreign vehicles that are used in the commission of crimes. Approximately 80% of the units that are used to commit crimes do not have an appropriate registration. Now they have a face, name, address of the owner and are registered in the Public Vehicle Registry (Repuve).

What are the resources obtained used for? Remember that also by instruction of the president they deal with patching the streets of the states that are incorporated in this activity, for this a payment of 2 thousand 500 pesos per vehicle is considered and it is used for the patching of the streets of these states � .

In front of the President of the Republic, he added: "This program was carried out from March 19 to September 19. 126 modules were installed in these 13 states and we have a result, I am pleased to report, of 557 thousand 697 vehicles regularized until yesterday. We had committed to 500 thousand by September 19, we exceeded the goal and we must thank the 13 beneficiary states (...) Here are the resources that were obtained with this measure: 1,394 million pesos that you have as of September 19 ".
 

The program is extended to December 31 and Jalisco is integrated

In the National Palace, the head of Security and Citizen Protection pointed out that due to the demand that the program has had, the decree extending the project until December 31 was published yesterday. She also announced the integration of Jalisco.

He explained that the three states that had the highest rate of regularized cars are Baja California, Chihuahua and Sonora, which add up to 55.3% of the total.

"The announcement that by instruction of the president is that given the demand for more appointments, yesterday afternoon the decree was published that extends the term of the program to December 31, and also by instruction of the president, the state of Jalisco is added to the list where there will be attention modules," he added.

With the incorporation of Jalisco to this program, these "chocolate cars" can now be regularized in the state.

 This information was published today.  I have been following the federal website, nothing is there, thus I answered the question in the way I did. 

As of Sept. 21 Jalisco is not listed on the federal website. So as to Jalisco as of September 21st there is no place to do it. 

Some requirements are; older than 2016.  It has to have been in the country as of October 19, 2021 or before, and not legally be in Mexico.  So as I read it a vehicle here on a legal permit (TIP) would not qualify.

So when the modules open in Jalisco if you have a car you brought to Mexico illegally before October 19 2021 you could be in luck. 

Here is the federal website

any one got any news about amlo legalizing chocalate cars in jalisco?

So just who ARE you and did you used to be an "inside trader" in another life? 😲 LOL LOL Very weird you pose this question exactly one day before story shows up in various places, including Informador (where I read it on line).

MostlyLost is correct. You also must take into account long-standing animosity between AMLO and Alfaro. Doubt Jalisco will be in any rush to comply.

With all due respect, that is probably a Gringo assessment.  In 6 months in 13 states there have  been over a half million chocolates 'regularlized'.... probably 99.999% by Mexican Nationals. That sounds like a pretty popular program to me.

"They extend the term for the regularization of 'chocolate' cars until the end of the year and include Jalisco

Jalisco was included in the regularization program due to its high rate of migrant population to the United States of America and Canada.

Mexico City / 19.09.2022 22:13:00

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador modified the decree for the regularization of illegally imported used cars, popularly known as chocolates, to extend its application that expired on September 20 until December 31 of this year.

In addition to that, the federal government decided to add Jalisco to the states where this type of unit is legalized, which are Baja California, Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Michoacán, Nayarit, Nuevo León, Puebla, Sinaloa, Sonora, Tamaulipas and Zacatecas.

"The state of Jalisco is included in said regularization program due to its high rate of migrant population to the United States of America and Canada, which has led to a considerable number of used vehicles of foreign origin in irregular status being interned in that state," he said.

They stressed that since the implementation of the regularization program for vehicles of foreign origin, more than half a million vehicles have been legalized.

"Legal certainty and protection were granted to the family assets of millions of Mexicans, as well as helping to guarantee public safety, which translates into a greater economic benefit for all the participating states," he said.

Car dealers are against this measure because it distorts the pre-owned market, generating an oversupply of used cars that also affects the sale of new units; in addition to accusing that they are vehicles that pollute more."

Great story but as of Sep. 22nd there is no Jalisco module on the federal website. 

So when the modules open in Jalisco if you have a car you brought to Mexico illegally before October 19 2021 you could be in luck.

Aha!

After poking the internet a bit I finally figured out what you folks were talking about.

The cars chocolate are vehicles that entered the country, especially the northern border illegally, as they obtained a temporary permit but did not return to their country of origin. According to the Official Gazette of the Federation, there are currently around 2 million chocolate cars in the country. 

The cars, mainly from the U.S., are known in Mexico as “chocolate,” a play on the word “chueco,” or crooked.

User friendly and popular are not the same thing.

https://www.deceroacien.com.mx/tendencias/2022/9/22/cual-es-la-multa-por-no-regularizar-tu-auto-chocolate-2783.html

"A few months ago, the President of the Republic, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, reported that a program would be launched to regulate chocolate cars, since in this way greater control of the vehicle fleet in the country could be achieved. The deadline to carry out the procedure was September 20, however, the Federal Executive informed through the Official Gazette of the Federation that the term would extend until December 31 of this year.

Despite the fact that the Mexican government has been quite flexible with the situation, there are still motorists who are not sure about starting this process, which leads us to ask ourselves: what is the fine for not regularizing your chocolate car?

According to reports from El Sol de Hermosillo, because the regularization process is still open, for now there is no official statement indicating that drivers of this type of car can be fined, since it is believed that they intend to start with regularization.

Insurance of automobiles Fines for foreign trade Prison (depending on the status of the vehicle)

“They can seize your car, they seize assets and the fines for foreign trade are very high, sometimes higher than the value of the vehicle. There may even be a prison sentence, in the least of three months to six years. The penalty varies if the vehicle brought false documents or had a report of theft.

Trial Lawyer, Nuria Gallegos, Via Milenio
