AMLO assured that the murders were already contained in his six-year term: “They left it very high for us”

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador assured in his message from the capital’s Zócalo that intentional homicides in the country were already contained in the middle of his term and have been reduced by 0.7 percent.

“They left it very high and we had to contain the progress first and we are going, little by little, reducing the incidence of this type of crime.”

According to official figures, the three years of the Mexican president have registered around 84,710 intentional homicides in Mexico from December 1, 2018 to October 2021. Other analysts estimate that the figure already exceeds 100,000 cases if they are updated to November of this year.

However, López Obrador presumed that it has reached a stage of decline in the main indicator of the violence that has plagued the country since the last 15 years, when the war against drugs was unleashed.

“The real confrontation with the leaders of the gangs, the real one, the deep one, the important one, is to prevent them from taking the young people, recruiting the young people, taking away their seedlings, preventing them from having a reserve army to commit crimes” .

The president affirmed that criminal cells are diminished by offering employment and education opportunities to those who can be hooked into a life of cheap luxury.
