"Violence in Tijuana does not stop, rather it increases every day and seems it afflicts insecurity throughout the country.
The authorities in
Baja California Nord have to face this sad reality", said the Archbishop
of Tijuana, His Exc. Mgr. Francisco Moreno Barron, who met the press on
March 13 for the presentation of the march in favor of life and
migrants, which will take place next Sunday, March 19.
So far this year there have been more than 200 murders in Tijuana,
linked to organized crime or drug trafficking. During last weekend, nine
people were killed in different parts of the city. In one case the
killers broke into a house in the northern area and killed three women
and two men cold-bloodedly.
"The same thing that happens in the city, also happens in the states of
Guerrero and Michoacan, I think we have a responsibility to address this
sad reality", reiterated Mgr. Moreno, stressing that it is urgent that
the authorities in Baja California establish an effective program to
promote community safety.
This means to ask citizens how to cooperate in
a serious and responsible plan in order to start reducing violence.
"Although civil authorities do not have all the answers and all
resources or a magic wand to resolve the situation, it is a duty of all
citizens. I think we are all called to work for peace", concluded the
