Vacation in Mexico

What could be nicer than a vacation in Mexico – sun, sea, beaches, no hurricanes and not too expensive. There’s only one problem – crime, lots of it, and increasingly American tourists are its victims. Lured by the promotion, they think five-star resorts with all the trimmings will be safe. Not so. There are dangers […]

Back to Mexico

About 2 million illegal immigrants were deported to Mexico under President Obama, and his successor is continuing the removal. Attention has focused on Emilio Gutierrez, a journalist who fled for his life from the violence in Mexico. He and his son are awaiting a decision from U.S. Immigration on whether they will have to go […]

Another Journalist Killed

Like other journalists before him, Carlos Dominguez at 77 was writing about the growing violence in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. He took aim at the drug cartels and the involvement of local politicians like the mayor of his home town, Nuevo Laredo.

His fate is still uncertain. For nine years U.S Immigration had been debating whether he is a suitable candidate for asylum even if […]

Cartels Face the Wall

We’re not sure yet what the wall on the Mexican border will look like – something new and forbidding or, sensibly, an extension of the adequate steel-bar fence that already exists along parts of the border. Whatever it is, it will challenge the ingenuity of the drug cartels determined to keep their billion-dollar business going […]

Why Kill?

Ever since he arrived on earth, man has killed and has also tried to explain why he kills – to little avail. Killing continues unabated. With due deference to the great minds that have wrestled with this conundrum, two contemporary women writers, while acknowledging that women, too, can kill, offer as persuasive an explanation as […]
