We were told this sign was negative because it closely resembles thief. So new sign was "V" at side forehead for brim of hat.

In my ASL class, we learned a different way to sign mexico. You have both hand an X-shape,right hand on shoulder and left hand is infront of you with your palm towards your midchest. then you bring the right hand down on the left. i've seen Deaf people use this

That is the sign for Spain but often the Deaf community will refer to any Hispanic as Spanish informally, hence the confusion.
