State Department Revises Mexico Travel Alert With Drug Violence Warnings

The State Department has released a new Travel Alert for Mexico with specific information about drug cartel-related violence on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Travel Alert on the State Department website issues the following warning:

“The situation in Ciudad Juarez is of special concern. Mexican authorities report that more than 1,000 people have been killed there this year. U.S. citizens should pay close attention to their surroundings while traveling in Ciudad Juarez, avoid isolated locations during late night and early morning hours, and remain alert to news reports. A recent series of muggings near the U.S. Consulate General in Ciudad Juarez has targeted applicants for U.S. visas. Visa and other service seekers visiting the Consulate are encouraged to make provisions to pay for those services with something other than cash.”
