Think twice before running for the border

American tourists being kidnapped along Mexican border.

“Derbez told the Televisa network that the U.S. position seems "in large measure, exaggerated, and outside the scope of reality, because the Mexican government has taken concrete actions" to curb crime along the border.” So I guess this means we can all rest easy in the knowledge that Mexican authorities have been able to stop the now decade-old wave of sexual assault and murders of young women in Juarez and Chihuaha, too?? And are well on the way to solving the 370+ cases? Better guess again.

Four women have already been killed in Juarez this year. Forgive me for not having a hell of a lot of faith in the word of Mexican authorities when it comes to relative safety in the border towns.
