Map: The military deployment of the National Guard in 266 coordinations

Contralínea  reveals the deployment of the National Guard, from the document "  Military links" and the Federal Police for the Regional Coordinations . The file shows that insecurity and violence dominate in around 80 percent of the national territory.



The military plan of the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador against organized crime has begun with 150 Regional Coordinations, out of a total of 266 that will be operating in the middle of the sexennium. A total of 50 thousand troops have already begun the deployment in which, in 3 years, will eventually participate 110 thousand.

Of the total of Coordinations (or quadrants) in which the authorities divided the country to confront organized crime, 153 (57.52 percent) present a level of "high" violence, that is, they are controlled so far by the criminals. In addition, 62 (23.3 percent) have a "medium" level: there is a dispute over control of the area between criminal organizations and the authorities. And only 53 (19.92 percent) enjoy a low level of violence, which means that control is exercised by the authorities.

Contrary to the recommendations of national and international human rights defense organizations, the president intends to calm the country with an unprecedented military deployment in the history of Mexico.

70% of the national territory, in the hands of crime: criminal traffic light of the federal government.

The criminal traffic light -with which the federal government evaluates the insecurity and violence in the country and defines the priority destinations for the National Guard- reveals that 70 percent of the national territory is in the power of organized crime.

At 1st glance I thought it was the US militarization of the borders and talk was of them going to the Mex/Guatemala border to help with apprehensions of migrants but this is Mexico.I guess there isn’t anything to lose the violence isn’t subsiding and the groups are so much splintered which may be easier to shut down then when Calderon was in power..70% of country controlled by organized crime ,wow is this coming from the Mexican Gov. or who is the source for those statistics?

This is coming from a Mexican journalist, from Mexican government data.  I thought the war on drugs was a failure and AMLO was even going to negotiate with cartels, legalize drugs, etc...  One of the problems I have with how the Mexican presidential system works, is there is little to no accountability.  The elected president gets 6 years and does not have to worry about getting re-elected.

Mexico should start seizing the assets or going at war with the gangs that cause the violence and release an non official statement that "it will go after organizations that cause violence first ." .
