Despite official commitments to fight the ever-growing murder case in Mexico, it just seems to be up.

Data released this week from the national public security system shows that the murder was submitting south of the border has continued to hover in the first three months of 2019.

Some 8,493 people were documented to have been murdered between January 1 and 3 March, which signals a 9.6 percent jump from 2018, which was already considered a cause for concern, given that there was a significant jump from the year before.

According to official statistics, the most violent country is Guanajuato in the central part of the country.

CHAPTER SINALOA-CARTEL’S REQUIREMENTS CANNOT BE LIMITED: CONTROLS OF FEATURES, BODY PARTS The Beach of the Beaches

Last month, Tijuana – the city bordering California – was considered by Mexico’s Citizens’ Council for Public Security and Crime as the most violent city in the world. Tijuana had 2,519 murders in 2018 – a forty percent increase from 2017, which in itself was a “record breaking” year, according to KQED Public Media.

Experts have also pointed to blood displacement between different cartels and a threat to control between Sinaloa and Jalisco New Generation as the main driver of the murder, which unions are trying to cement the foothold in the anchored smuggling hub in the United States.

Overall, Mexico experienced an unprecedented number of murders in 2018 and 2017 with the country’s Ministry of Interior documenting an increase of 33 percent from 2017 to 2018 – which underlines that 33,341 surveys of murders were opened last year.

And with 2019 on track to exceed that number, the tensions are in place.

Mexico’s new president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador – who was sworn in on December 1 – collided with reporters earlier this month and insisted that the murder rate is “under control” and has not escalated since joining, according to the BBC.

Obrador fought on the promise to put down the number of murders in the violent nation he inherited and has promised to create a new national security force of 80,000 people to fight “war against drugs “and defeat and reduce the impact of the powerful drug cartels that have long gripped Mexico.
