How difficult is it to take up Mexican citizenship?
Pretty difficult. Unlike the U.S., they actually enforce their Immigration laws zealously. It's hard to even be an Immigrant there (which is the correct legal term for people who legally enter a country to reside there).

Biostar is so huge, it only needs to sell in US and Mexico to be the No 1 motherboard manufacturer.
