Families flee after the death of “Tony Tormenta”
Reynosa, Tamaulipas –SUN- More than 100 families from Ciudad Mier (state of Tamaulipas) have abandoned their homes because of violence that has been unleashed since last Friday. (This is just across the Rio Grande River from Roma, Texas.)
The families, being fed up with the violence, decided to abandon their city and many have fled to the United States. Others have taken refuge in the Club de Leones (Lions Club) in the nearby city of Miguel Aleman.
“Here we are in the shelter at the Club de Leones to assist all the families we can who have left their homes,” said the Mayor of Ciudad Mier, Jose Ivan Mancias Hinojosa.
The communications media can testify to the great solidarity between the small border cities around Miguel Aleman and the assistance that has been given to the families who have left their homes because of the lamentable violence that has occurred since last weekend.
Mayor Jose Mancias, accompanied by his treasurer, Cesar Ramirez, and his staff, arrived with food for more than 100 families including children, young people and adults.
“Like you, we are suffering from the violence, we are here with you and we will not leave you. Only God knows when this will end and we pray for it to stop,” said hostess Patricia Lopez Moreno.
