MEXICO, December 02 -- Multiple grenades have exploded on the grounds of the US’ consulate in the western Mexican city of Guadalajara.
Just before US Vice President Mike Pence and President Donald Trump’s daughter and adviser Ivanka flew into Mexico City on Saturday morning at the head of a high-level US delegation attending the inauguration of Mexico’s new president.
The consulate said that it was made aware of the security incident following a report by Fox News that said that two grenades were thrown at the US consulate Friday night. In a statement on the consulate’s Facebook page, they said that no one was hurt in the incident. They said "the Consulate was closed at the time and there were no injuries."
A former special agent that was in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) Special Operations Division, Derek Maltz, told Fox News that there was “unconfirmed information” last week that members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) had threatened to bomb the US embassy or consulate in Mexico.
SANAA, November 25 -- US President Donald Trump has threatened to close his country's border with Mexico if the situation at the crossings deteriorates as thousands of asylum seekers and immigrants arrive from Central America.
There is no other way, because the United States will not be able after decades of immigration violations to bear this costly and dangerous situation, "Trump wrote on Twitter. Trump pointed out that only persons eligible for refugee status are allowed to enter the country. The Washington Post reported on Saturday that the Trump administration had reached an agreement with the Mexican government waiting for asylum seekers in Mexico during the US courts' assessment of their requests.
The agreement was not formally signed, but US officials see the deal as a possible breakthrough in efforts to deter immigration. "We have agreed on a policy to keep immigrants in Mexico," the Mexican interior minister was quoted as saying by the newspaper. It is noteworthy that the convoy of immigrants from several countries in Central America arrived at the Mexican side of the border with the United States, hoping to enter for a better life.
ROTTERDAM, August 22 -- Government increases its count of those who have gone missing since start of war with powerful drug gangs in 2006.
The Mexican government has increased its calculation of the number of people who have disappeared since the start of the country's drug war in 2006 and now lists 22,322 as missing, officials said. It had said in May that 8,000 people were missing. Assistant Attorney General, Mariana Benitez, said 12,532 people went missing during the 2006-12 administration of President Felipe Calderon, who declared war on drug traffickers. An additional 9,790 have disappeared since President Enrique Pena Nieto took office on December 1, 2012.
Benitez said that the list of people reported missing during Calderon's government had gone up to 29,707, but that authorities arrived at the figure of 12,532 still missing after finding the rest alive or confirming their deaths. She said a second list started with the Pena Nieto government showed 23,234 people reported missing between Dec. 1, 2012, and July 31, 2014. She said 13,444 of those had been located, leaving 9,790 still missing. Authorities have given conflicting figures on missing people since announcing in February 2013 there was an official list showing 26,000 people unaccounted for.
In May, Interior Secretary Miguel Angel Osorio Chong said the number of missing was at 8,000. He didn't mention there were two separate lists and didn't take follow-up questions from reporters during his announcement. It is unclear how many of the missing were kidnapped or killed by drug gangs, which frequently bury their victims in clandestine graves. Benitez said disappearances are not only linked to drug violence. She said other causes include "voluntary absence, absence due to domestic problems, kidnapping, migration within the country or internationally, confinement in a correctional facility (and) death."
