AMLO Government has left the states alone in the fight against crime


You must have a clear strategy and act with relevance against criminal groups, said Silvano Aureoles Conejo, governor of Michoacán, during his visit to Culiacán, Sinaloa

Culiacán.- The strategy against organized crime in Mexico has not been successful, declared Michoacán Governor Silvano Aureoles Conejo during his visit to the city of Culiacán, Sinaloa.

In a meeting with colleagues from the PRD and civilians, Aureoles said that the entities in Mexico have had to face crime alone, because, despite the fact that it is an issue that falls to the federal authority, they have not acted in the face of crime.

‘Hugs not bullets’ empowers organized crime: Aureoles

In his opinion of the Andrés Manuel López Obrador administration, the premise of ‘hugs not bullets’ has generated that organized crime groups have become empowered and feel immune.

There is no clear strategy to deal with a problem that is growing exponentially, and no state of the republic escapes or is free from it, he declared.

He mentioned that the Attorney General’s Office functions more as an instrument of the Government to persecute those who do not agree with the official position, but there is no fight against organized crime, which in Mexico represents the majority of crimes.

We are literally at the mercy of what the groups want to do (…) the states have neither the faculty nor the sufficient resources to face forces of this magnitude.

However, given the dissatisfaction of Mexicans towards the current presidency, he believed that movements such as the National Anti-AMLO Front that seek the resignation of the president are not relevant.

“The president was elected by those who voted for him to govern for six years, and what must be asked of the president is that he begin to govern and make decisions in favor of Mexicans.”

He pointed out that what should be done to build an alternative and proposals from society so that Mexico advances and does not go backwards.
