Texas asks college spring breakers not to vacation in Mexico because of violence
Police joined a warning from the U.S. government to advise students to avoid visiting the country
AUSTIN, Texas, March 6. – The Texas Police on Tuesday added a warning from the U.S. government to advise students to avoid travel to Mexico during spring break.
The Department of Public Safety Texas bordering Mexico, issued the warning to American students who usually travel to Mexico for vacation-known as spring breakers, noting the continued presence of violence in Mexico.
Violence related to organized crime escalated in December 2006 when it began the government of President Felipe Calderon, who intensified the fight against drug cartels.
The U.S. State Department recommended last month the Americans against traveling to certain parts or all of the territory of 14 of the 31 states of Mexico. The travel warning is made larger than the United States since Mexico intensified the fight against organized crime in 2006.
