Prison for visa overstay

There is a Tangerine Travels video describing the incarceration of a middle Eastern guy who overstayed his visa. Scooped off a tourist bus like a dog. Is this the new trend? He said in the prison there were travellers in there for the same offense rotting away for months.

Was this a visa overstay in Mexico?

Or a visa overstay in the US?

;-)

This bill imposes various penalties on aliens who overstay a visa or lawful immigration status. An alien who overstays shall be fined or imprisoned for up to six months, or both. Such an individual may not be admitted into the United States for 5 years, and may not be granted a visa for 10 years. For subsequent offenses, the alien shall be fined or imprisoned for up to two years, or both, and shall not be admitted into the United States or granted a visa.

The dude was definitely south of the border.
Or maybe your question was rhetorical

Hola
This must be a USA thing. Last year in Mexico we overstayed our 180 day visa by 90 days. When we left and went through Mexican customs at the airport they just took our visas , stamped our passports ( we are Canadian) and that was it . No fines, no fees, no jail, no nothing.
