Crime in Mexico: 8500 Homicides in First Quarter of 2019

April 15, 2019

As President Trump declared a national emergency over the humanitarian and security crisis at the southern border, our southern neighbour Mexico is on track to record its most violent year on record, according to security experts.

The first quarter of 2019 would also be the most violent first three-month period of any year since the SESNSP started recording comparable statistics in 1997.


“With these statistics, we can see that the incidence of intentional homicides is not being reduced or contained, which has been identified as a priority objective in the security strategy of the current government,” explained Ricardo Márquez Blas, a high-ranking security official in an interview with Mexico News Daily.




war zone south of our border


Hmm... even without an enormous wall, there still isn't a warzone in the southern USA! How can this be? 


Still, Millions of terrorists might be crossing that border every day for all I know! (I haven't done any research).


Someone needs to spend $Billions so I feel like "something is being done". Some guy on twitter has assured me that building a big wall is the best way to deal with things, and I'm definitely not going to read anything longer than 40charactrs before I make up my mind on this!

Mexico first to ratify USMCA trade deal, Trump presses U.S. Congress to do same

Source: Reuters

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico on Wednesday became the first country to ratify the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) agreed late last year to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) at the behest of U.S. President Donald Trump.

By a vote of 114 in favor to 4 against, Mexico’s Senate backed the deal tortuously negotiated between 2017 and 2018 after Trump repeatedly threatened to withdraw from NAFTA if he could not get a better trade agreement for the United States.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador had already anticipated ratification this week in the Senate, where his leftist National Regeneration Movement (MORENA) and its allies have a comfortable majority in the 128-member chamber.

There has been little parliamentary opposition in Mexico to trying to safeguard market access to United States, by far Mexico’s top export destination, and the trade deal was approved with overwhelming cross-party support in the Senate.
