Minimum Standard Of The Treatment Of Aliens, 38 Michigan Law Review 445 (1940)
Its note of August 3, 1938, the Mexican Government, by its Minister of Foreign Affairs, contested the right of the United States to demand compensation for the agricultural lands of American citizens expropriated by Mexico since 1927. It asserted that the countries vigorously maintained “The principle of equality between nationals and foreigners, considering that the foreigner who voluntarily moves to a country... in search of a personal benefit, accepts in advance, together with the advantages which he is going to enjoy, the risks to which he may find himself exposed. It would be unjust that he should aspire to a privileged position safe from any risk, but availing himself, on the other hand, of the effort of the nationals which must be to the benefit of the collectivity.”
