This just in from the Associated Press. When I read the warning to “stay away from prostitution and drug-dealing areas” I had to ask myself, “do we need the State Department” to figure that one out?
Mexico travel alert
The U.S. State Department has renewed a travel advisory warning its citizens about an increase in violence along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The alert does not recommend staying away from the country or any particular part of it, but advises American to stay away from prostitution and drug-dealing areas.
It recommends visiting only legitimate business and tourist areas.
The alert issued Friday says violent crime is particularly worrisome along the U.S.-Mexico border. Read the full text of the advisory.
