Mexico’s Murder Numbers Soared in 2019, While America’s Border Remains Porous

Published

The Mexican government recently confirmed that 2019 was its most blood-soaked year in recent memory as homicides increased by 2.7 percent during President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s first full year in office.

On Monday, January 20, 2020, the National System of Public Security announced that 35,588 people were victims of homicides in 2019. This included 1,006 women targeted in “femicides,” or killings carried because of the victims’ gender.

On top of that, approximately 5,000 people disappeared in Mexico in 2019 and were not discovered.

Authorities carried out the highest number of murder investigations last year since they began to keep such data in 1997.

AMLO acknowledged his government’s failure to keep homicides in check but said Tuesday that there were more pressing matters.

“I think that the bigger damage has been done by white-collar criminals, whether politicians or businessmen who call themselves entrepreneurs,” the leftist leader said during his news conference.

In recent years, violence has increased as certain organized-crime groups have split up into warring cells and criminal ­organizations have diversified in their tactics. Cartels used to focus on shipping drugs to the United States, but many now also participate in predatory crimes in Mexico, which include extortion, kidnapping and retail drug sales.

Recent months have illustrated the gut-wrenching power of drug cartels. In November, cartel gunmen massacred three women and six children who held dual American-Mexican citizenship while living in the northern state of Sonora.

A few weeks prior to that incident, Sinaloa cartel gunmen virtually captured the city of Culiacan, compelling the government to release Ovidio Guzmán, a son of drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, shortly after Mexican authorities arrested him.

Towards the end of the year in December, dozens of cartel gunmen assaulted a town hall in Villa Union, which is located 40 miles southwest of the U.S. border town of Eagle Pass, Texas. This assault sparked a two-day battle with security forces that left 19 dead.

What’s taking place in Mexico is indicative of a failed state.

Mexico is no longer dealing with everyday criminals equipped with regular weapons, but with paramilitary forces that can outgun government forces and create parallel governments.

This shows why the U.S. desperately needs a solid wall on the Southern border and a total overhaul of its immigration policies so that its national security interests stay intact.

Campaign 2020

University of Pennsylvania Workers Overwhelmingly Support the Democrat Party

From Top to Bottom Universities are in the Tank for Democrats

Employees at the University of Pennsylvania are overwhelmingly in the tank for the Democrat Party.

Ophelia Jacobson of Campus Reform reported that University of Pennsylvania employees contributed to Democrat candidates, campaigns, and organizations between 2019 and 2020. Campus Reform was able to gather the data by turning to the Federal Election Commission.

Per the Campus Reform analysis, a whopping 97.6 percent of campaign contributions in 2019 and 2020 made by Penn instructors, staff, and administrators were sent to “Democratic organizations, candidates, and their campaigns.” Some of these groups and causes included ActBlue, Win the Era PAC, Biden for President, and MoveOn Political Action.

The remaining 2.4 percent of contributions went to Republican causes. These included WinRed, Donald J. Trump for President, and the Republican National Committee.

To get more specific, of the 715 donations that Penn faculty members made, just 11 were sent to Republican candidates, institutions or campaigns. This number represented 1.5 percent of campaign contributions pitched in by faculty members. The remaining 98.4 percent of donations were sent to Democrat causes.

Staff contributions showed similar trends. 97.6 percent of contributions were sent to Democrat campaigns, candidates, or organizations, whereas 2.4 percent were sent to Republicans.

Penn administrators donated 731 times during the time-frame of 2019 and 2020. Curiously, 21 of those 731 contributions (2.8 percent) were only made to Republican causes and the remainder (97.1 percent) were sent to Democrat causes.

This analysis reported that ActBlue was the principal organization that Penn workers donated to as far as Democrats institutions were concerned. In contrast, WinRed was the largest recipient of donations of all the Republican organizations.

Just another case of an American institution of higher learning being filled with leftist staff across the board. Let’s face it, universities are a magnet for the Left and work to perpetuate such a political paradigm.

Conservatives should take note. These institutions and the drones who work for them are the enemy. In light of this, the Right should aim to defund public universities and make sure to attend alternative educational institutions if possible. These institutions do not deserve a single penny from right wingers.
