The "frontera.info" page above references http://www.conuee.gob.mx/wb/CONAE/comunicado_dgafid_012010 which has the virtue of being a governmental ("gobierno") source. The "gob.mx" page indicates that US rules get followed "en los municipios fronterizos de Tijuana y Mexicali en Baja California" rather than in the entirety of Baja California.

Of course the law is one thing and what's actually happening may be quite another.
