Loreto: Complaints about unfair competition from foreigners
#1
[Fulano's comment: This class warfare is becoming a continuing saga in Loreto, where the locals are up in arms about the foreign residents, who they say are stealing their livelihood.]

Loreto, Baja California Sur.- Prestadores de servicios turísticos están pidiendo al Instituto Nacional de Migración (INM) que se haga algo para detener la competencia desleal de extranjeros y no sigan desplazando a los lancheros y hoteleros locales con la renta de sus botes y casas de forma irregular.

En entrevistado en la dársena del malecón, los prestadores de servicios señalaron que la peor crisis que pueden enfrentar es la apatía de las autoridades para ponerle un freno a la evasión de impuestos de muchos extranjeros que vienen a hacer negocio en México.

Mientras nuestros hoteles están vacíos y nuestras pangas no salen por falta de turismo, los gringos y canadienses vienen ya organizados y traen clientes argumentando que son sus amigos o familiares, cuando todos sabemos que hay un negocio de por medio, denunciaron.

Es increíble que las autoridades no puedan hacer algo porque no tienen pruebas, cuando en internet se oferta una gran cantidad de servicios turísticos.

Hay "gringos" que se dan el lujo de recoger a sus clientes en el aeropuerto, los hospedan en sus casas, les rentan lanchas, motos, carros y hasta bicicletas, les ofrecen cocina y alacenas llenas de artículos estadounidenses, lo cual provoca que los loretanos cada vez tengan menos trabajo a pesar de que sí arriban turistas.

A partir de octubre, cientos de extranjeros jubilados empiezan a llegar a Loreto y muchos no vienen sólo a descansar, vienen a trabajar, robándole las oportunidades a los locales sin la mínima actuación de las autoridades, afirmaron.


Providers of tourist services are asking the National Immigration Institute (INM) to do something to stop the unfair competition by foreigners and to stop them from displacing the boat and hotel operators with the illegal renting of their boats and homes.

In an interview at the waterfront malecón, the service providers said the worst crisis they have to face is the apathy of the authorities to stop the tax evasion of many foreigners who come to do business in Mexico.

Meanwhile, our hotels are empty and our pangas do not sail for the lack of tourism. The Gringos and Canadians come here very well organized and bring clients, while saying they are just friends or family, when we well know they are doing business.

It is incredible that the authorities cannot do anything because the have no proof, when on the internet they are offering a large number of tourist services.

There are "Gringos" who even pick up their clients at the airport, they house them in their homes, they rent them boats, motorcycles, cars and even bicycles. They offer them kitchens full of American food items, which means the people of Loreto have less work each time even though tourists are arriving.

Starting in October, hundreds of retired tourists start to arrive in Loreto and many arrive not just to rest, they come to work, stealing the opportunities from the locals without the slightest action by the authorities.

Gee and what about the illegals in the US who take away jobs as gringos now live on the streets in their own country

Mexicans don't get to complain about gringos taking their jobs very often- so let them run with it if it makes them feel better. Wink

If the BajaNomads would refer to the real source for news [Fulano], they would not be wandering around looking stupid and wondering what happened, and why:
