    Both females

    Because the two leading candidates in the election later this year are females, and with the large lead they have it's very unlikely not to be a female.

    Like I said before, Mexicos next president will be a woman so the chances of the Zona getting cleaned up are very high in my opinion.

    Many Mexicans who work in the Zona Norte may have told you that. Regular tourism (including the massive number of pochos who patronize the restaurants and clubs), medical tourism, and manufacturing are major sources of foreign exchange, far bigger than the hooker bars. The Zona Norte bars are big fish in a very small pond. You need to get out more.

    El Salvador 75 K gangs in prison, crimes down

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtLiQnXC7sQ

    If small poor El Salvador can control its gangs and drastically reduce crimes, why T F can Mexico not control its cartels?

    Everyone knows for decades most Mexican government officials, including the top federal officials, are traditionally on cartels' payrolls. They lie to, beat up its own citizens, give good lip services, songs and dances to Washington, but are deep in the cartels' pockets.

    Number of registered 'sex servers' in Tijuana doubled in 4 years

    The number of registered working girls doubled in 2023. This article is hard to believe. Personally I have not seen a uptick. In fact I have seen a decrease. This one security guard friend says that as well.

    I keep hoping we see a increase in the number of SG's / SW's. The former tourist minister was saying Tijuana should actually promote prostitution. I think HK is doing a good job. What we need is better looking girls that are reasonably priced in the Zona.

    I used to carry one I received at an MLB party. Even got it laminated. The few times I was frisked and police saw the card they mentioned to me that the person on the card doesn't work there anymore. Personally I feel my tarjeta Soriana and my Farmacia Gusher 35% discount card with photo ID were more impressive to them.

    Medical tourism alone dwarfs any kind of $$$ Zona Norte brings in. There's WAY more to Tijuana (and Baja California as a whole) than just Zona Norte, we can't just sit here and look at an entire region only through our perspective as mongers, LOL. I see Americans walking up and down and in the bars on Revolucion all the time. I see them sometimes in the various restaurants I like to frequent outside Tijuana. And the dental office I go to every once in a while in Zona Rio (Advanced Smiles) there are always a few Americans when I go to visit.

    Agree that the cartel violence (or at least the "image" Tijuana has of persistent, ongoing violence and corruption) has scared off many but the tourist dollars are definitely still there, IMO.

    Most of the people I see crossing the border are commuting to work and back. There is also a lot of Hispanic's go to visit families. I see far more guys going to visit the Zona.

    Go east to Otay and look at the dozens of fabricas. They bring in waaaaaaayyy more that a few thousand dollars a week. Let's not forget general tourism. Loads of tourists visit Tijuana to spend money in places other than the Zona Norte. Let's not forget all of the shipping infrastructure. Every day hundreds of semis go through the border carrying all kinds of produce and merchandise.

    If the ZN disappeared tomorrow, nobody but a relative handful of people would notice.

But I have an open mind, and am certainly willing to be proven wrong. If the stop is completely illegitimate I suppose it could cause them to ease up on the mordida requests. Of course, if it's completely illegitimate, if you stand your ground the cops are likely to go away empty-handed. If it's legit. Open container, DUI, walking around drunk / high, possessing drugs, etc. , the card won't do much.

    The Zona is no worse tn terms of looks other areas run down parts of Tijuana. The drug dealers & sporadic crime is the main issue in the Zona these days. The other factor to remember that prostitution is part of Mexico's culture. Mexican men see hookers quite often.

    There may not be any credible reports on this board simply because this board apparently just now heard of the "Sindacatura Card" because I posted about it a few days ago. But there were credible reports on the previous website about being cut loose without being robbed on the other board. Now that being said the Card may. Or may not have been the reason for being cut loose but it definitely helps to let them know if they act out of sorts you do know how to report them.

    As for your best bet. 100 % spot on Sir. The end of the day you are a guest in their country. Don't be a jerk, but don't be a simp either. Politely stand your ground and remember that if you are "riding dirty" and you pay your way out of it that it's not a rip off it's actually a benefit to you because chances are the penalty for the actual crime might be a whole lot worse.

So even if the number is only $400 and the average customer spends $20. This works out to $8000 a day or $57,000 a week.
