The U.S. Department of State has renewed their existing Mexico Travel Warning revealing that the border state of Tamaulipas has nonexistent law enforcement capabilities. “U.S. citizens have been the victims of violent crimes such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking and robbery by organized criminal groups in various Mexican states” the first paragraph of the travel warning revealed.
According to the Department of State, in 2015, 103 U.S. citizens were murdered in Mexico. The figure shows a slight increase over 2014 when only 100 citizens were murdered.
Breitbart Texas reported on the previous travel warning which showed a grim increase in violence for Mexico which paints an even darker picture when compared to the current warning.
Since 2013, 281 American citizens have been murdered in Mexico.
