Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Under Mexican law, children born outside of Mexico to Mexican citizens are still eligible to be Mexican citizens. So once your mother is deemed to be a Mexican citizen, by virtue of your birth to her as a Mexican citizen, you can apply for your citizenship in Mexico as well as they provide for citizenship by descent.
