Urban Migration Triggers More Poverty

According to SEDESOL (social services), the economic boom in the city is causing more people to come to Leon, which generates an over-demand for services, which can’t be readily solved.  Noting that Leon is one of the ten cities nationwide with the highest poverty, a social services representative said that they are studying how to work in a focused manner with the government.  He continued that the migration to the city creates imbalances, and that they are hoping the new Congress will increase their budget.

Planes, Vehicles and Property Seized from Drug Gang

The Nicaraguan Army and Police captured a drug cartel cell, and seized 11 vehicles, 5 aircraft, 9 pieces of heavy equipment and 7 rural and city properties in different parts of the country.  One pilot and 4 Nicaraguans were arrested.  It is believed they were part of La Familia (Mexican cartel).  The drugs were moved by air, using planes appearing to be crop dusting aircraft.  Police are continuing to search for   other suspects that are Honduran, Colombian, Mexican and Costa Rican.    The seizures included five planes, seven tractors, a bulldozer, a Caterpillar, two cars, four race cars, four pickup trucks, a motorcycle, two houses and five plantations in the interior.  The arrested Nicaraguans were directors of the company named Aerial Spraying Agricultural Services. (Of note is the suspects are of five different nationalities.)

The Year Ends with 66, 000 Cases of Dengue

(Tegucigalpa, Honduras)  The Director of the National Dengue Program has reported 66, 000 cases of classic dengue (a virus caused by four closely related virus serotypes and transmitted by mosquitoes).  Eleven thousand people have been hospitalized for suspected dengue hemorrhagic fever during this year.  He said the year is closing with a weekly report of 99 cases, the lowest in ten years and credits prevention programs.  He noted that involvement of the entire population is essential to combat dengue as mosquitos breeding in homes must be eliminated.

Violence Scares Investors

(Mexico City) Direct foreign investment fell 78 percent in the January-September period. The Ciudad Juarez chamber of commerce reported membership declined from 600 to less than 400 as many companies crossed the border, and “Now El Paso is in a Boom” said Román Sandaña.  The story describes losses of  $100 million for an ethanol plant, $40 million for a wholesale office equipment warehouse operation, and others.  It notes that state governments increasingly are spending less on public safety.

New Report of Cartel Blockade in Michoacán

(Apatzingan, Michoacán) New incursions by cartel groups occurred over the weekend, with trucks and heavy tonnage vehicles set on fire to block roads.  Mexican Army, Marines and Federal Police were at the opposite sides near the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain. (Previous news from this area has described the military chasing cartel gunmen into those mountains, and include them killing a cartel boss during a gunfight.  Although this article appears critical of the armed forces being located opposite of where the violence was, but most likely this was a tactical move intended to prevent escape and move any  potential danger away from residents. )

Most Mexicans Believe Calderon is a Danger to the Nation

A recent study showed that there is a deep disappointment of Mexican voters, with 40% believing there was electoral fraud in 2006.  The study’s data shows that 41% of the respondents said Calderon has proved to be a danger to the country. (Several people made comments to the article and said the reason Calderon is a danger is because he is the only one who has fought the cartels.  One continues that insecurity, drug trafficking, injustice has always existed, and he is the only one who has done anything.)
