Links[edit]

Some of the links to some pages are set up to redirect back to the main page, they should be removed or the page linked to should be created ~~

Immigration[edit]

I cited some sources for the Immigration section but the section mostly quotes from the Mexican Constitution and doesn't cite any immigration policies. I tried my best to include information about actual immigrants since after all that section is titled Immigration but the section still doesn't flow well. Also, this section seems out of place since there is already an article titled Immigration_to_Mexico. The statement "Mexico has the most strict immigration laws in the world" is POV.

Zapatistas

The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (aka, EZLN / Zapatistas) has had a special place in Mexican political history . . . it resulted in millions of pesos being thrown at Chiapas shortly after the uprising; in a massive military occupation of Chiapas; in inspiring hundreds of other indigenous communities to become autonomous; in inspiring a global movement against neo-liberalism, esecially against the WTO, the IMF and the World Bank; in turning the tide of the general political culture to the left, to the point where a center-left candidate stands at the throes of winning the election for the first time in Mexican history; and last, but far from least, in giving a voice to the voiceless, that is, to the indigenous and impoverished people who live in much of Southeastern Mexico. Thus, it deserves a proper place on this page, which should be substantially more in-depth and substantive than the state is in now, where it is falsely described as a mere "conflict." It's much more than a conflict, it's a social movement whose influence has reached far and wide in Mexico and beyond.

Judicial Branch[edit]

The first sentence of this section is missing a word, but I'm not sure what it shouold be.

Article 94 of the Constitution provides that the judicial power of the United , each with five justices.

Remove the photo, stop messing around[edit]

Please somebody remove the image wich has a footnote that reads "Felipe Calderón is the current president of Mexico." I don't know how to do it. Thank you.

political leanings of parts of the country[edit]

It's often reported in the media that northern Mexico tends to be more conservative, and southern Mexico more left-wing. It would be useful to have some sort of discussion of that issue. --Delirium 16:00, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Spam and political parties[edit]

Removed spam from political parties description in the introduction, but still - someone should write relevant information there that are currently missing.

I removed the unattributed line "...with the Ecologist Green Party of Mexico (PVEM) now overcoming the PRD." from the intro. It seemed like spam with no basis in fact. —Preceding unsigned comment added by GheeBern (talkcontribs) 06:35, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Important notice[edit]

The government section of the "Outline of Mexico" needs to be checked, corrected, and completed -- especially the subsections for the government branches.

When the country outlines were created, temporary data (that matched most of the countries but not all) was used to speed up the process. Those countries for which the temporary data does not match must be replaced with the correct information.

Please check that this country's outline is not in error.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact The Transhumanist .

Thank you.

Proposal to Split This Article[edit]

Hello:

This article is really composed of three separate - and quite distict - subjects.

Namely:

  • (1) The Federal Government of Mexico (its powers, its institutions, its constitution, how it operates, etc)
  • (2) State (and lower) Governments of Mexico (their composition, sovereignty, share of power with central government, their state institutions, their legislative branches (1vs2), their judiciary and how it fits within the federal juduciary (appeals process, etc), others)
  • (3) Politics of Mexico, per se: (political parties, elections, pressure groups, etc)

It would be a relatively easy task to split it into their three corresponding articles. I would like to propose that this be done, for several reasons:

  • a, it would keep the article from growing any larger (as its own single entity) than it already is.
  • b, it would, I believe, encourage editors to expand on the newer more specific articles.
  • c, well, the obvious: this article is really of mix of three articles.

I'd like to know what other editors' opinions are. Thanks, Mummy34 (talk) 20:41, 31 October 2009 (UTC)


HELLO: There are no responses so far since yesterday. I will wait 1 more day and if there are no objections that cannot be resolved, I will proceed to splitting the article. Thanks, Mummy34 (talk) 07:17, 1 November 2009 (UTC)
