Employee of U.S. Consulate Killed at Border State

His body was found in TIjuana.

Mexican law enforcement arrested two individuals who were suspected of being involved in the kidnapping and murder of a U.S. Consulate employee near Tijuana. Per a report from Breitbart News, these two individuals were suspected drug dealers.

According to an initial report by law enforcement, the victim was shot nine times. However, law enforcement changed its statement to reflect that the victim was only stabbed.

The killing of the consulate employee occurred last week when local law enforcement in Tijuana received a missing report. The report was for 35-year-old Edgar Flores Santos, a Mexican national employed U.S. Consulate for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Baja California Attorney General’s office (FGE) released information revealing that authorities found Flores’ body the next afternoon at a ranch just outside of Tijuana.

In addition, investigators were able to find his government-issued vehicle. There are still questions about where the victim was originally kidnapped, although he was found wearing his work clothes.

State authorities initially stated that Flores received nine gunshot wounds. Later on, the statement was modified to say that he was a victim of a lethal knife attack.

Upon receiving news of this incident, U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Christopher Landau expressed his condolences and said that the U.S. and Mexico would get to the bottom of this case.

According to a report from the local TV station XEWT, state investigators apprehended two men linked to the case and are now facing only drug related charges. It has yet to be determined if the authorities will press murder charges against the individuals or if they are searching for other suspects.

A report from Zeta Tijuana revealed that the area where Flores’ body was found is viewed as dangerous by locals. On a previous occasion, local officials requested that state authorities patrol the area even more.

This is just another example of how Mexico is still institutionally fragile. In 2019, Mexico experienced over 35,000 homicides and state security forces are routinely outgunned by cartels.

U.S. policymakers should take this into account when discussing border policy and recognize that maintaining the border policies of previous administrations is not sustainable.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection

Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.

Published

on

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.
