The mayor of Ciudad Juarez continues to support the work of the current boss of the Municipal Public Security Secretariat, Julián Leyzaloa, to the extent that he said he rather resign his position he holds as mayor, before the allows the resignation of the former Lieutenant Colonel.
During his speech at the 18th Public Hearing held in the community of Tierra Nueva, he made it clear that there is very little chance of the resignation or forced resignation of Leyaola, as has been called by criminal organizations through banners left around the city.
Not even in light of the eight officers that have been executed so far this month, will the Secretary of Public Safety leave his post, Hector Murguia said, "I will go first before Lieutenant Julian Leyzaola."
However, he said that they have already discussed several strategies for police officers to be able to defend themselves from these attacks, such as allowing them to take their weapons home or housing them in hotels with security, as did the federal police during their stay in this border town.
