Mayor of Juarez: “ Weapons do not Solve Insecurity”

MEXICO CITY  In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Hector Murguia argued that the causes of violence are a lack of opportunities. He says his city has been forgotten by the governments of Mexico and the U.S.  The Mayor said, “The real causes that are creating insecurity in Juarez and throughout Mexico are the lack of opportunities, lack of education, impunity, lack of justice… it is a mixture of a lot of problems.”  He continued, “When people lose hope they will do anything (to improve their circumstances).”  Murguia criticized the state and federal government, saying that their investment does not match what the city has paid in federal taxes.  He ended by saying, “If the Mexican institutions will fail in Juarez…then everybody is going to fail.  What can a small Juárez mayor without power do if President Calderón does not provide support?”  (Caption for accompanying picture states:  “Violence:  The city of Juarez has been one of the most affected by organized crime.”)

Calderón Confirms No Pact with Narcos

YOKOHAMA, JAPAN President Felipe Calderón, at an Asian Pacific Leaders Forum meeting in Japan, affirmed his decision not to negotiate with criminal groups. This was in response to a proposal made by La Familia Michoacána that they would dissolve if local and federal governments would take control and not infringe on human rights. Calderón warned that there would be increased federal action, particularly in places where the is more violence such as assaults, kidnapping or extortion. He said they would continue to fight crime because Mexicans need and justly demand that those who govern protect Mexican families and not leave them to defend themselves.

    Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for discussing your ideas with this blog.
    Also, a delusion regarding the lenders intentions while talking about home
    foreclosure is that the lender will not have my payments.
    There is a certain quantity of time in which the bank will take payments every now and then.
    If you are also deep inside the hole, they may commonly desire that you pay the actual payment 100 %. However, i am not saying that they will not take any sort of installments at all. In case you and the lender can seem to work anything out, your foreclosure course of action may cease. However, when you continue to pass up payments within the new system, the home foreclosure process can pick up exactly where it was left off.

    I am frightened for America and my home town – El Paso. There is an Elite Group of Mexican Businessmen who fled Mexico and has started their businesses here. They have created what is called ‘La Red’ and they admit their only interests are Juarez and MX yet live here to be safe. I am providing the link to the El Paso Times News Article, but what ticks me off is that Congressman Reyes, UTEP President, Joe Moody and Dee Margo has met with these men who will not reveal what their agenda is. All their meetings at breakfast are in spanish and only people of mexican decent can join. Something terrible is coming to America. They have grown form 8 in Feb to now 300.
