Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas - New "Elite" soldiers of the Cartel del Noreste,15 year old minors in a criminal organization where the only requirement is to lose their lives in a confrontation (not being afraid to die).

Every day they drop out of their adolescent school studies. By being deceived or misinformed about the criminal organization they are convinced to initiate into as halcones “guarding the front" of the terrain patrols that authorities carry out in the city for 1,500 pesos every 2 weeks.

Baja CA 2019: 245 Murders per Month, State Retains 2nd Place in Mexico

"The world homicide rate is 6 violent deaths per 100,000 inhabitants, but in Baja California currently they kill 85 people per 100,000 citizens," said Santiago Roel, founder of the Traffic Light.

New Security measures failed Baja California in its first year of implementation. The presence of the National Guard did not contribute to increasing the number of arrests of criminals and the 6,000, 048 million pesos delivered in social programs did not impact security either. 2018 being the record year in violent homicides, 2019 presented a marginal reduction of just 7% in a federative entity where 85 people continue to be riddled for every 100,000 inhabitants.

The first year of the administration of the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, will be remembered as the one with the highest rate of malicious homicides, feminicides, business robberies and/or extortion,  human trafficking and drug trafficking, with failures in a security issue in which it prevails with  budget cuts in every sector except for the Armed Forces, says Francisco Rivas Rodríguez, director of the National Citizen Observatory Security, Justice and Legality.
