According to the Epoch Times, the U.S. State Department recently issued a new travel warning for U.S. citizens who decide to travel to Mexico.
In this warning, the State Department had a list of five Mexican states with “Do Not Travel” warnings.
On December 17, 2019, the department announced an “exercise increased caution” travel warning because of increased crime and kidnapping
The “Do not travel” warnings only apply to five Mexican states, which include Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa, and Tamaulipas.
The following cities were listed as potential danger zones: Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Jalisco, Mexico, Morelos, Nayarit, Nuevo Leon, San Luis Potosi, Sonora, and Zacatecas.
American citizens who travel to Mexico are recommended to have traveling companions and family that stay home who are aware of their travel plans. Additionally, the department advices that these Americans traveling Mexico send a friend their GPS location. Some other suggestions include “using toll roads where possible, avoid driving alone at night, exercise increased caution when visiting local bars, nightclubs, and casinos, be vigilant at banks and ATMs, and to not display signs of wealth.”
In addition, U.S. government employees have been advised to not travel between cities at night, to not ride with taxis on the street, and to use dispatched vehicles instead.
“The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in many areas of Mexico, as travel by U.S. government employees to certain areas is prohibited or significantly restricted,” the department’s website stated.
“Violent crime—such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery—is widespread.”
Insight Crime reported that 17,608 people were killed in Mexico during January to June 2019, thus making it the highest homicide rate on record in recent history.
Mexico is home to some of the largest and deadliest criminal syndicates on the planet.
“These organizations have drawn from Mexico’s long history of smuggling and its close proximity to the United States, the world’s largest economy, to grow into a regional threat,” Insight Crime reported.
“Their armament, training and tactics have become increasingly sophisticated as the Mexican government has ramped up efforts to combat them.”
After President Donald Trump made an announcement on November 26, 2019, the State Department is expected to formally declare Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations.
After a group is designated as a terrorist organization, per U.S. law, it becomes illegal for Americans to knowingly provide them support. Members of these orgs also can’t enter the country and could face deportation. Financial institutions that realize they have funds in connection to a terrorist group must block the money and make the U.S. Treasury Department aware of this. Further, suspected operatives of foreign terrorist organizations can face surveillance under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty
According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.
This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.
Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.
Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.
Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September.
Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.
Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.
Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.
Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
