Anyone with a tourist visa or temporary residents’ card that does not carry the necessary authorization should avoid working for pay in Mexico, particularly if they’re engaged in erotic dancing or offering sexual services.

Immigration authorities canceled the permits held by 21 women after they were found working in a bar called La Premier Sports in Cancún, earning as much as 5,000 pesos (US $330) a day.

Aged between 20 and 43, the women were from Colombia, Venezuela and Russia. Seventeen had tourist documentation while four had temporary resident status.


Federal Police officers rescued 18 women who were being sexually exploited in Ecatepec, a city in Mexico state

Federal Police officers rescued 18 women who were being sexually exploited in Ecatepec, a city in Mexico state, and arrested two suspects, the National Security Commission said.

Federal law enforcement agents following up on an anonymous tip confirmed that illegal activities were taking place at the Flamingo taco shop in the Ejidos de San Cristobal district of the city, the commission said in a statement.

Customers were invited into an area in the rear of the shop that had been outfitted as a bar and “where acts of sexual exploitation were presumably carried out,” the commission said.

A special Federal Police unit raided the store, where they found 18 women who appeared to have been victimized, the commission said.

Alberto Silva Vazquez, suspected of running the establishment, was arrested on people trafficking and sexual exploitation charges, the commission said.

Officers also arrested Erick Sebastian Vazquez Nuñez, who was in possession of a 9-mm pistol, ammunition and cash.

The suspects and the property seized were turned over to prosecutors in Mexico state, which surrounds the Federal District and forms part of the Mexico City metropolitan area.
