Last year was Mexico’s most murderous year on record.
There were 25,339 homicides in Mexico last year, a 23% jump from 2016 and the highest number since at least 1997.
Maybe President Obrador should focus on his own country first before lecturing the United States.
The Hill reported:
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Monday urged the United States to revisit gun control legislation following the deadly mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.
“We’re very respectful of what other governments decide, but we think that these lamentable events that occurred in the United Sates should lead to reflection, analysis and the decision to control the indiscriminate sale of arms,” López Obrador said at a press conference in Valle de Bravo, Mexico.
