Tijuana, right across the ‘open border’ with San Diego, is listed as the deadliest city in the world based on its 2018 homicide rate. Over a period of less than 48 hours last week, 21 people were murdered in a grisly fashion to make a statement to the living. Most of the bloodshed is related to drug-cartel turf wars.
A local resident said that Mexican cartel members have threatened her family. Her husband had to use a gun to fend off a dozen illegals entering her property heading for the house. She says it is unsafe to go outside without a gun and her neighbors are afraid to call Border Patrol due to threats by drug smugglers.
Norma Azucena Rodríguez Zamora was driving along a highway when two men shot at her vehicle, causing it to flip and she was then pulled from the vehicle and forced to leave with the gunmen. More than 120 Mexican politicians and political candidates have been killed since September, 2017. More than 200,000 people have been murdered since 2006.
