Dear Ralph,

The Mexican authorities generally do not do US background checks before issuing immigrant Visas. However, there are various diffent types of Immigrant Visas and you need to see if you are eligible for one of them based on your particular situation. You should visit the nearest Mexican Consulate and discuss your particulars(i.e. your work experience, financial situation, etc.) and thus get a good idea of your eligibility.

Hope this helps,
