Citizenship and Marriage

If you came to the us illegally when you were 15 and have been here for over 8 years are you still a legal citizen of Mexico and are there penalties if you go back to Mexico?

Mexican citizenship

no there are no penalties for returning to your hometown. even if you were here all your life but were born over there youre considered a Mexican citizen. unless you get a citizenship in the united states that's when you have to pay a penalty to go to Mexico.
