This is good news for the people who live here and visitors to Baja California. The National Guard generally does very good work in helping to reduce crime here in Tijuana. Kudos to the governor.

One thing the Americans could to help do would be not to pay the ridiculous rents they are asking for. The rent for one house on my block has now increased 5X over the what they asked for 3 years ago. Maybe we should make some guides to teach how to negotiate for rent.

Amazing! I live in Tijuana and didn’t know what a good service that CBX access offers.

I am worried and embarrassed for my city and country today. Please don’t come now, it is simply not safe. My family and all my friends we are all staying locked in home.

That looks like a serious offroad vehicle but can the chassis hold up?

Yes, a classmate at school is one of the dancers.

Yes, the cost of housing at the beach remains very expensive, pushed by so many from San Diego moving here for cheap housing. San Diego rent prices dropped slightly in the last few months but are still much too high for average working families.

Not really, most don’t have the english proficiency required to get those jobs. I had always considered those jobs too low pay to attract any from the USA but I hadn’t thought about retired people living here on a pension. Could be a good job for some of them to augment their monthly budget.

I asked Mexico customs officers today when crossing why the Pedwest crossing south into Tijuana wasn’t open and they said because nobody told them to open it. Typical Mexican bureaucracy.

The war on drugs for the last half century accomplished only one thing, to convert the cartels into private armies who bribe corrupt officials in my country to get out of jail and even cooperation to move their drugs. We will never defeat the cartels. The US drug market represents too much money for them to just ignore and walk away from. Stomp out one cartel and two new ones appear.
The only solution is to legalize drugs and put all that money into drug treatment and counseling.
Until that happens, it’s best to avoid the remote areas along the north Sea of Cortez because the cartels are in control there.

Listen to the people who make your tacos to eat, pour you a beer and fill your truck with gasoline. They know exactly what is happening here and if you ask them they will tell you.
This is how Mexico works today.
What you posted is actually a dirty little secret that most Mexicans know but rarely talk about, maybe because in a way, we are little embarrassed to admit it is true. We had this same conversation at my university in a sociology lecture on Mexican society and one of the students mentioned this example when talking about our values as Latinos. The professor had a very difficult time to respond as it undermined some of his theories but everyone, including our professor, agreed this is the real situation in working class neighborhoods of my country today.
My response to the professor was that I acknowledge this happens but place the blame on our government who keeps us in the dark so much about what is really happening? We have no where else to go but to our local malandros to find out.
I agree with you – I believe that governor made a deal with the cartel to knock it off.

I hope they remain safe.
Are they Americans?
I hope that peace continues.

Tell your friends it is not safe right now.

Yes, we have a ignorant fool in charge of our country and we are witnessing the results of his stupidity in Tijuana today.

Thanks and I hope to learn more about all of you and share what I can about my state.
