    NBC DFW ^ | Dec 2, 2016
    A Mexican man must serve life in a U.S. prison for stalking and helping arrange the 2013 Texas slaying of a lawyer who'd been the acting head of a Mexican drug cartel. Jose Luis Cepeda-Cortes was sentenced Thursday in Fort Worth. The case involved the shooting death of Juan Jesus Guerrero Chapa in Southlake, near Dallas. Cepeda-Cortes in May was convicted of interstate stalking, conspiracy to commit murder for hire and tampering with documents or proceedings. Officials said the tampering involved efforts to destroy evidence on his computer. His cousin, Jesus Gerardo Ledezma-Cepeda, was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder...

    Mexico's ambassador to the U.S. is warning President-elect Trump that building a wall on the southwestern U.S. border would hurt the environment. "We fear that there is going to be consequences regarding environmental issues," Carlos Manuel Sada Solana, Mexico's ambassador to the U.S., said in an interview with the Arizona Republic . . . Sada on Wednesday warned that if the Trump administration forces Mexico to pay for the border wall by trying to tax remittances, there are "legal issues" at stake. "[I]f that is one of the alternatives, we will find out what we have to do in that...

  • Mexico disappointed at Carrier agreement to keep jobs in US

    MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Officials in the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon expressed disappointment Wednesday at Carrier Corp.'s announcement it will keep hundreds of jobs in the United States rather than send them south of the border. Carrier said it had made a deal with President-elect Donald Trump to keep the jobs at its plant in Indiana. Carrier currently operates one plant in Nuevo Leon and has built but not yet occupied another one there as part of a planned $200 million expansion. "The implications are very serious, not only for Nuevo Leon, but for Carrier," Sen. Marcela Guerra said....

    From the earliest days of his campaign, Donald J. Trump made keeping manufacturing jobs in the United States his signature economic issue, and the decision by Carrier, the big air-conditioner company, to move 2,000 of them from Indiana to Mexico was a tailor-made talking point for him on the stump. On Thursday, Mr. Trump and Mike Pence, Indiana’s governor and the vice-president elect, plan to appear at Carrier’s Indianapolis plant to announce they’ve struck a deal with the company to keep a majority of the jobs in the state, according to officials with the transition team as well as Carrier....

    Mexican authorities say an investigation that began with an anonymous tip about kidnappings led to a grisly find: 32 bodies and nine severed heads. The remains had been buried in hidden graves in a remote, mountainous area of Guerrero state, a hotbed of drug-related violence. The victims and suspects have not yet been identified, state officials said in a statement Thursday. Authorities are still combing the area to see whether there are more hidden graves at the site, the statement said. The investigation began earlier this week after authorities, acting on a tip, found a man who'd been kidnapped and...

    November 23, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – After months of successful pro-family marches protesting an attempt to amend the constitution to create homosexual “marriage,” Pope Francis’ new apostolic nuncio to Mexico has come with a perplexing message for Mexicans: Don’t march, but rather enter into “dialog” over the gay agenda. Archbishop Franco Coppola, a career diplomat with the Holy See who has served as nuncio to several African countries, arrived in Mexico on September 29. He soon began commenting on the struggle underway in the country over a proposed set of reforms by Mexican president Enrique Peńa Nieto to amend the constitution...

    When a massive country de-nationalizes its entire energy sector and opens its oil and gas doors for the first time ever to foreign companies, the opportunities are staggering. Welcome to the ‘new’ Mexico, and welcome to the early stages of an oil and gas game that will be bigger—from an investor’s perspective—than anything in history. Mexico’s move to implement historic energy reform legislation in December 2013, and follow-up legislation in 2014 that further solidified the comprehensive de-nationalization, provides an unprecedented opportunity for oil companies looking to tap into Mexico’s huge energy potential.

    Few of President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign promises resonated as deeply as his promise to build a wall. In 2015, he gave the first of many speeches outlining his immigration plans, the cornerstone of which was a wall with Mexico. "We’re going to work on numerous things. The first is building a wall, which Mexico will pay for. Okay? We’re going to build it. I know how to do it. It’s going to be real wall, not a toy wall like we have right now," Trump said.

    On Thursday evening, President-elect Donald Trump tweeted that he received a call from Ford chairman Bill Ford indicating that the automaker had chosen not to move an entire plant from Kentucky to Mexico. As many reports rightly indicated, that’s not entirely true. Ford never intended to close and move its Louisville Assembly Plant — to which Trump is referring — to Mexico. The plant currently employs a little more than 4,700 workers. The Detroit-based automaker was only considering moving its Lincoln MKC production — only one of the vehicles manufactured at that plant — to its factory in Cuautitlan, Mexico,...

Now that the election is over, these issues are coming to the fore. First, the president-elect said that the wall, which he mentioned on the campaign trail and in numerous debates, is still very much on the table, though what type of “wall” that may be is an unknow. Second, he said he planned to start deporting illegal aliens—those with criminal records—which could amount to as many as three million individuals. Despite “The Wall”, the deportation...

Alejandro Solalinde, who is heavily involved with migrant’s rights, told El Universal, “Mexico is going to become a destination country, and highly cosmopolitan; in the United States now you won’t be able to live, not because of lack of work, if not because of racism, intolerance, and violence that will occur.”This year there has...

The transition team is planning big spending negotiations with Congress at that time, which will include money for the wall — a platform on which Trump built his campaign for the presidency. He plans to make Mexico pay for the wall directly or indirectly by increasing fees on visas and border crossing cards, enforcing trade tariffs and taxing money transfers abroad.

The measure seeking to enshrine in the constitution same-sex couples’ right to wed was defeated 19-8 Wednesday in the Commission on Constitutional Matters. According to a summary published online by the Chamber of Deputies, commission chairman Edgar Castillo Martinez said the vote means the matter is “totally and definitively concluded.” Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled last year that it was unconstitutional for states to bar same-sex marriage.

While the effects of a Trump victory on Mexico are likely to be huge, there are plenty of other reasons the country’s economy and currency are under growing pressure, including a consumer slowdown in the...

Coronel has filed complaints before to pressure the government to improve conditions for the Sinaloa cartel’s leader.

    Eight years ago, doctors in Mexico disconnected an infant named Ximena Galvez from life support, convinced that she was brain dead.On Sunday, Ximena was giving Pope Francis a big hug during Mass in St. Peter’s Square.The eight-year-old’s incredible story came into the spotlight as José Sánchez del Río, a martyr of Mexico’s Cristero War, was declared a saint of the Church.Paulina Galvez, Ximena’s mother, is convinced it was through the intercession of St. Jose—affectionately called St. Joselito by Mexicans—that her daughter was spared death. And the Church agrees with her, using the medically-unexplainable healing as a sign from God that...

    Mexico had a flourishing, legal, gun culture until 1972, when the Mexican government made private, legal, ownership of guns extremely difficult and expensive.  The change in law was meant to disarm the political opposition and keep the existing power structure in place.  The power structure has remained in place, but it has not flourished.  Much of Mexico is contested ground, with narco-cartels that are not aligned with the Mexican government in armed conflict with the Government and its cartel allies.  Private citizens are caught in the crossfire, abused by both sides, and denied the legal ability to arm themselves....

    The total apprehensions by U.S. Border Patrol agents of people trying to illegally cross the border between the United States and Mexico increased in 2016 from last year but is lower than the two years prior. In 2016, there were 408,870 total apprehensions, a 23 percent increase from 2015 in which there were 331,333 apprehensions, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement. The 2016 numbers, though, represent a 14.7 percent decrease from the 479,371 apprehensions in 2014, and a 1.3 percent decrease from the 414,397 apprehensions in 2013.
