Cartel gunmen were suspected to have killed 6 police officers in an ambush in northwest Mexico on October 1, 2020.
Authorities are now on hot on their tracks according to a report by Fox, who are in pursuit of the gunmen who attacked a convoy transporting security forces.
José Rosas Aispuro, the governor of the state of Durango, said on October 3 that prosecutors are in the process of investigating the attack, which occurred in the town El Mezquital. Seven other police officers also received injuries.
According to state prosecutor, Ruth Medina, several of the vehicles that the assailants left behind had bloodstains all over them, which potentially hinted at the gunmen suffering several casualties. The notorious Sinaloa drug cartel has a strong presence in the region that the attack took place.
Violence in Mexico is getting out of control. In 2019, Mexico suffered over 35,000 homicides.
Mexico is a failed state that is becoming increasingly dominated by drug cartels. In fact, during the current Wuhan virus pandemic cartels have flexed their muscles by providing aid and enforcing curfews. As history shows time and time again, nature abhors a vacuum. When public institutions fail to provide order, other coercive institutions will fill in the void.
Mexico is exhibit A of this. Such a dynamic has only become more prevalent under the watch of Mexico’s current President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), who has advocated for a “hugs not bullets” approach to tackling crime. It seems that the American left’s soft on crime policies are becoming an export commodity for other countries to consume, much to their detriment.
BLP previously reported on one incident where Mexican security forces were outgunned by members of the Sinaloa cartel after the security agents attempted to detain the son of infamous drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera. Undoubtedly, Mexico is going through institutional decay.
Because of that, the U.S. must take shoring up its border defense seriously, It cannot risk having drug cartels and other criminal actors make their way across the border and start slowly hacking away at American cities.
This is one preventable evil that could be avoided by simply securing the border and keeping Mexico’s dysfunction within its respective borders.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection
Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his endorsement of President Donald Trump in an event signing a new trade agreement between the United States and Brazil on Tuesday in the South American country.
“God willing I will be able to attend Trump’s second inauguration,” said Bolsonaro at a press conference detailing the new agreement with US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. Bolsonaro wanted to emphasize that he does not wish to “interfere” with the US election, but that his support for President Trump comes from the heart.
Bolsonaro and Trump have coordinated on policy to contain Venezuelan and Cuban-style Communism within South America. NSA O’Brien stated that relations between the US and Brazil have “never been stronger” at the trade agreement signing. The US designated Brazil a “non-NATO” ally in 2019, and the two countries have worked together on environmental policy to deter wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.
The new “mini-trade deal” signed between the two countries will regulate telecommunications exchanges between the US and Brazil. Brazil, which is the second-most populous nation in the New World with 211 million people, is an increasingly significant country in global business and diplomatic affairs.
Bolsonaro himself is somewhat of a right-wing populist in the veins of global leaders such as Viktor Orban, Andrzej Duda, and President Trump. He won election in 2018 in a landslide, capitalizing on alienation among the Brazilian electorate for the socialist-style governments that had governed the country for over a decade, mass crime, and preferences for gun rights.
Establishment liberals frequently receive endorsement from globalist leaders across the world, and never think twice about not crying “foreign interference” in the event that it benefits them. President Bolsonaro isn’t an American, but it certainly bodes well to see the leader of the Americas’ second largest country develop a strong working relationship with President Trump.
