Concerns are growing that several American golfers attending this weeks WGC Mexico Championship are planning to flee the brutal regime in their own country and seek asylum in Mexico after it finishes.

Rumours grew credence after journalists noticed several American players, including Matt Kuchar and Bubba Watson arriving at Naucalpan, on the outskirts of Mexico City with their entire extended families in pick-up trucks heavily laden with suitcases and household pets.

It is now thought that up to 30 American players who have grown exasperated with drug cartel violence and gun crime in the USA believe it is safer to live in Mexico and will make an attempt to flee the country for good on Sunday night.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto today warned American players against the move saying that without the appropriate documentation they could face lengthy detention periods in 6 star hotels in Cancun before deportation back to the USA.

“Our border controls are working 24/7 trying to stop the influx of illegal immigrants from the United States,” Nieto said, “I have also issued an order to ban all McDonalds and KFC restaurants from the environs of this weeks golf event in a bid to discourage any Americans thinking of staying”.
