Abstract

Among many clichés about Mexico in the US mass media, the most famous one praises Mexican hospitality: Mi casa es su casa (my house is your house). On the other hand, in Mexico, there is a saying, not completely true but rather cruel, that goes: El muerto y el arrimado a los tres días apestan (after three days, dead people and visitors both stink). There is a strong tension between perceptions, actual behaviors, and culturally—politically biased migratory policies. The dominant Mexican identity congratulates itself about Mexico being a host that welcomes with open arms those who are in need of shelter; at least that is what happened with republicans fleeing Spain at the end of the 1930s as well as Argentinean and Chilean dictatorships in the 1970s. Only recently, in 2010, 440 Haitians similarly arrived in Veracruz, of course, for other reasons as well.1
