Monetary remittances into Mexico
The individual monetary remittances into Mexico from abroad dropped 1.69% during the first nine months of the year in comparison with the similar period during 2009. Those remittances, almost all from the United States, have reached 16 billion 156 million dollars this year, according to figures from the Bank of Mexico. After petroleum production, remittances are Mexico’s second largest source of income. Mexico is the largest recipient of remittances in Latin America. Over 11.8 million Mexicans live in the United States.

Smuggler of Chinese detained in Mexico

Triple execution at border crossing sows panic
Early Tuesday afternoon, a vehicle with three men inside was parked near the Mexican customs facility just a few yards from the dividing line between the U.S. and Mexico at the border crossing of El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua. Then, other vehicles arrived, and their occupants, said to be younger men, surrounded the parked vehicle and opened fire. The three men in the parked vehicle were all killed; shell casings from assault rifles and pistols were later found at the scene. The three victims were reportedly Mexican federal police. Their killers disappeared without a trace. The multiple execution caused panic in the area and the temporary closing of all traffic across the border at that crossing.

And yet another massacre
This morning (Wed.) an armed group of men assassinated 16 persons at a car wash in Tepic, state of Nayarit. The victims were all employees of the car wash but also said to be attending a local drug rehab facility. Just last Sunday, another 13 persons were shot to death at a rehab center in Tijuana.
Shortly after the attack, the police radio frequency was used by unknown persons to warn that this is “a proof of what Juarez is” and they threatened that there will be 135 assassinations, possibly alluding to the 134 tons of marihuana that were seized on Oct. 16. (Tepic is on Mexico’s Pacific coast, not far north of Puerto Vallarta.)

Violence in Acapulco
The sixth consecutive day of violence in Acapulco resulted in two homicide victims and three other persons wounded. One of the dead was left with a “narco message.” Shootouts caused panic among residents and passersby. (“El Universal” added the following, unrelated event): The bodies of four murder victims were found shot to death this morning (Wed.) in an Acapulco neighborhood. Shell casings from AK47 were also found at the spot.

From one end of the country, to the other
An armed group attacked the police facility at Ciudad Madero (adjacent to Tampico, on the Gulf of Mexico). The outcome was seven police and one civilian wounded. The attack began Wednesday morning when the thugs opened fire against the building and also threw four grenades against it.
Guillermo Vega, the second in charge of the Judicial police of the state of Colima, became organized crime’s victim number 86 in that state when he was ambushed and executed with gunfire from car-to-car on a highway. He was shot “at least” 28 times with AK47’s.

U.S. Border Patrol foils attempt to smuggle aliens
Five illegal aliens, all from Mexico, were found by U.S. Border Patrol Agents at a highway checkpoint near Pine Valley, San Diego County, Calif. The five were all in a utility trailer, and lay crammed on their side and head to toe within the wooden base box of a bed, under some furniture (Apparently including a mattress, according to the photo below, which accompanied this article.) The driver of the tow vehicle, said to be a U.S. citizen, was arrested.

Kidnapped Hondurans rescued in Mexico
At Palenque, state of Chiapas, kidnappers who operate in southern Mexico intercepted 23 Hondurans who were illegally in Mexico and took them to Villa Hermosa, in the neighboring state of Tabasco. The Hondurans, whose aim was to reach the United States, included six minors ranging from 7 to 12 years of age. The kidnappers, who are also alien smugglers, contacted relatives of the Hondurans to demand money in exchange for their prisoners’ release. On Tuesday the 26th, a “special operations” group and state police rescued the Hondurans and detained their captors.
