Mexico Travel Warnings-go to link/scroll down for individual states
“Gun battles between rival TCOs or with Mexican authorities have taken place in towns and cities in many parts of Mexico, especially in the border region. Gun battles have occurred in broad daylight on streets and in other public venues, such as restaurants and clubs. During some of these incidents, U.S. citizens have been trapped and temporarily prevented from leaving the area. TCOs have used stolen cars, buses and trucks to create roadblocks on major thoroughfares, preventing the military and police from responding to criminal activity. The location and timing of future armed engagements is unpredictable. We recommend that you defer travel to the areas indicated in this Travel Warning and exercise extreme caution when traveling throughout the northern border region.
The number of kidnappings and disappearances throughout Mexico is of particular concern. Both local and expatriate communities have been victimized. In addition, local police have been implicated in some of these incidents. We strongly advise you to lower your profile and avoid displaying any evidence of wealth that might draw attention.
Carjacking and highway robbery are serious problems in many parts of the border region, and U.S. citizens have been murdered in such incidents. Most victims who complied with carjackers at these checkpoints have reported that they were not physically harmed. Carjackers have shot at vehicles that fail to stop at checkpoints. Incidents have occurred during the day and at night, and carjackers have used a variety of techniques, including bumping/moving vehicles to force them to stop and running vehicles off the road at high speeds. There are some indications that criminals have particularly targeted newer and larger vehicles, especially dark-colored SUVs. However, victims driving a variety of vehicles, from late model SUVs to old sedans have also been targeted. While violent incidents have occurred at all hours of the day and night on both modern toll highways (“cuotas”) and on secondary roads, they have occurred most frequently at night and on isolated roads. To reduce risk, if absolutely necessary to travel by road, we strongly urge you to travel between cities throughout Mexico only during daylight hours, to avoid isolated roads, and to use toll roads whenever possible. The Mexican government has deployed federal police and military personnel throughout the country as part of its efforts to combat the TCOs. U.S. citizens traveling on Mexican roads and highways may encounter government checkpoints, which are often staffed by military personnel or law enforcement personnel. TCOs have erected their own unauthorized checkpoints, at times wearing police and military uniforms, and killed or abducted motorists who have failed to stop at them. You should cooperate at all checkpoints.” More at link below:

Senators will seek dialogue with the U.S. to prevent construction of border fence
The Senators of Mexico will ask the government of the United States to establish dialogue committees to search for a solution to the migration problem, considering that it is an international phenomenon that will only isolate the neighboring country to the north, since measures such as the fence that they plan to build due to the Immigration Reform would increase the risk factors of thousands of Latin Americans who will continue in search of the American Dream, with or without a fence.
“The construction of a border fence between Mexico and the United States is not the solution to do away with migration, which will continue no matter how high and wide the fence may be built,” said Senator Laura Rojas Hernandez, president of the Foreign Relations and International Organizations Commission of the High Chamber.
After participating in the forum about “Transparency and Anti-corruption” organized by the legislators in the Latin University of Mexico, Senator Rojas Hernandez also stated that it’s necessary to find a solution to the migration problem, with the participation of all Latin American governments, but also with the governments of Europe and Asia, because the border of Mexico has been the route for neighbors of the old Continent to seek their passage toward the United States.
She further stated that the United States cannot isolate itself from the world with a fence that, contrary to what’s expected, will strengthen the migration phenomenon; but even more so, it will raise the risks and dangers for the Latinos and Europeans who might want to cross toward NorthAmerican territory.
She reiterated that, aside from the breakdown that might occur in the international relations between the Mexico and United States neighbors, the ones directly harmed are the migrants of the whole continent who, by their nature, will not stop setting forth on roads in search of the “American Dream.”
Laura Rojas Hernandez specified that the Senate is in search of a dialogue with the US. government because it is important that in the process of an Immigration Reform they ought to consider other options with an international vision, before the fence may come to represent the start of a global isolation for the United States.

The article relates that Honduras, a relatively poor country with an average of 20 homicides per day, “exports” 65,000 of its citizens per year all in search of the “American Dream.” But the number of these emigrants are now being boosted by an increasing number of 14 and 15 year olds due to the challenging levels of poverty and insecurity in their home country.
