Falta! Tarjeta Roja!

In Brazil, they have Favelas. In Mexico..."invasion de terreno" is an art form.

Much of the areas in and around what today is DF (and all large cities)was "developed" by squatters (exactly as Rob described). Imagine the impact of a few million squatters on the infrastructure...without out proper sewage, elec, water etc. Nearly 23% of Mexico's population live in one small Valley! Urban planning at it's best!

Throughout LATAM, it is still common (though diminishing) for large finca/rancho owners to "sweep" their properties every few months. It's a long chess match.
