El Chapo and Epstein Share a Prison

Jeffrey Epstein was jailed three doors away from drug king El Chapo’s cell in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City. But El Chapo, famed for two escapes from maximum prisons in Mexico – one by laundry cart, the other by tunnel – was unable to break away this time and was transferred to […]

Mexico’s Black Hole

Norma Sarabia Garduza became the seventh Mexican journalist to be murdered this year by the drug cartels in a surging violence throughout the country. In early June, she was talking to a relative on the veranda of her home in Huimanguillo near the Guatemalan border when four masked men pulled up in a car. One […]

The Unmentionable Drug Cartels

We’re not sure what is being built along the U.S.-Mexican border, but politically speaking, the word “wall” packs a punch for both sides, for and against, useful for rallying supporters, fanning the flames, winning some votes. Never mind reality.

The Shot That Explains the Caravan

While journalist Jesus Ramos Rodriguez was having breakfast in a restaurant in Mexico’s Tabasco state, a stranger approached and fired eight shots, killing him.
