Mexican security forces rescue 23 migrants in Nuevo Laredo

A total of 23 migrants heading to the US were rescued Wednesday by a Mexican security forces in the border city of Nuevo Laredo, Tamauliupas, according to Mexican news accounts.

According to a news report which appeared in the online edition of El Diario de Coahuila news daily, a Base de Operaciones Mixtas (BOM) group of state and  federal security units found the migrants Tuesday at a residence under construction in Constitucional colony in the city.

Some of the victims told authorities that they were waiting to be released by their captors after their families paid tribute.

Local Mexican criminal gangs routinely kidnap migrants heading to the US and hold them until tribute can be paid.  If they refuse or money can't be raised, the victims are executed.  The worse example of this practice took place three years ago August in San Fernando municipality when a local Los Zetas group demanded tribute be paid from a group of migrants they were holding, but were rebuffed.  The San Fernando gang executed 72.

The migrants in the Nuevo Laredo group rescued were from Mexico and from central America nations including seven from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.

Two suspects were detained at the scene and a Ford Expedition SUV was seized.  The suspects were identified in a separate news release posted on the official news site for Tamaulipas state as  Julio Cesar Garza Ibarra, 41, and Juan Pablo Rincon Magaña, 33
Meanwhile near Matamoros, three armed suspects were shot to death when they encountered a Mexican Army road patrol.

According to a separate news report in El Diario de Coahuila, the suspects were traveling aboard a Chevrolet Suburban SUV along the Matamoros to Reynosa highway when they were signaled by the patrol to stop at around 1315 hrs.  The patrol was fired on by the suspects.  Army return fire hit the suspects, killing them.

Also in Tamaulipas in the central section of the state, a Base de Operaciones Mixtas (BOM) group detained three unidentified armed suspects said to have been involved in shootings in the area.

The arrests took place along the road between Villagran and Magueyes.  The security force also seized two rifles, a revolver and several balaclavas.

    I only deleted one comment today...or I should say yesterday..and it was not deleted because of the comment itself, it was the use of the 3 "F" word, of course we choose what to post, it is clearly stated we moderate all comments. Think what you want but perhaps BDN would be a better match for you.

    How do you know they were real marines ?
    They could be Zetas members dressed in uniforms.
    They have military weapons, uniforms, ammunition, etc.

  20. Chivis , Borderland Beat Thank you for all the work you do for exposing the filth coming from Mexico. I used to enjoy soaking in a hot spring in Abasolo Coah. Not anymore. I used to enjoy eating fajitas in Monclova, Sabinas , Nuevo Rosita,Allende,Zaragoza,Morelos,Musquiz hasta Torreon. Why is there such a media blackout and no one wants to confront the violence in Mexico?
    Lots of people in the U.S.A. think all the violence is faux/made up not real an illusion and the victims are all Bad people. Lots of innocents die at the hands of bad guys in Mexico.
    I normally don't bring this up but God Bless Borderland Beat.
