Feds issue Mexico travel warnings, bans

The U.S. Department of State has issued strong cautionary travel warnings regarding travel to Mexico. According to the government website, violent crime, such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery, remain widespread.

A ban is in effect for the Mexican states of  Colima, Guerrero, Michoacán, Sinaloa and Tamaulipas due to crime.

The concern is so great that U.S. government employees are prohibited from intercity travel after dark in many areas of Mexico.  Those employees are not permitted to drive from the U.S. Mexico border or from the interior parts of Mexico with the exception of daytime travel on Highway 15 between Nogales and Hermosillo..

The ratings range from Level 2 (Exercise Increased Caution)  to Level 3 (Reconsider Travel) to Level 4 (Do Not Travel). There is an expansive advisory, obviously intended to be taken seriously due the high risks posed to natives and Americans.

Government employees are under strict travel bans and are prohibited from using public transportation. Criminal activity and violence, including homicide, remain an issue throughout the nation. According to the Government of Mexico’s own statistics, the country “experienced an increase in homicide rates compared to the same period in 2016. While most of these homicides appeared to be targeted, criminal organization assassinations, turf battles between criminal groups have resulted in violent crime in areas frequented by U.S. citizens. Bystanders have been injured or killed in shooting incidents.”

No wonder John McCain and Jeff Flake and their Democrat friends want to import more of these genteel folks into the U.S., and gift them with amnesty, ultimately citizenship and voting rights.

    Even if Mexico was a safe destination, which it most assuredly is NOT, why would any right thinking American want to spend their money in this corrupt country? The government of Mexico is complicit in flooding the United States with their own citizens to bolster Mexico’s economy with $$ Billions of US dollars sent back home in remittances each and every year. It make no sense to support Mexico with our travel dollars.

    Nor does it make any sense that the Republican Party elites lionize McCain for leading the overthrow of the U.S. through the illegal alien invasion. Allow all the illegals possible to invade the U,S, Do not oppose their voting in our elections. Democrats take over the country through voter fraud elections.

    McCain’s people are doing the same by killing the proxy limit vote in the AZ state legislature. McCain led corruption as far as the eye can see. Let’s name another air terminal after him.

      A HOT AIR terminal;with a hanger specifically constructed to house the vestiges of the three jets McCain crashed during his days as a Navy pilot would be appropriate..

      I understand that there is a flurry of building activity at GITMO.
      Perhaps they could name a new airstrip at Leeward Point Airfield for ourshame.

      SkyTracker (or other tracking sites) should be fun to watch next week.

    Interesting developments today:

    State Dept. tweets that Rex Tillerson is meeting with leaders in Kenya. To discuss many things, Including coming to a mutually beneficial agreement on TRADE.

    BHO is radioactive now.
    Perhaps he will try to find shelter by finally owning his Kenyan citizenship.
    Too bad, Renegade, traitors can be Foreign or Domestic under US law.

    Snowden, too, is radioactive. On the run.
    Being offered a choice: A/B or C (assassin’s bullet or cuffs)

    Trump is our gift from God. Give Thanks.
