Coparmex asks the AMLO government to change its strategy to face the growing insecurity

The Employers’ Confederation of the Mexican Republic (Coparmex) demanded that the federal government, headed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, recognize that its strategy to confront the unsafety has “failed” and it is urgent to make a change of direction to confront criminal groups and drug cartels.

Jose Medina Mora, president of the Coparmexstated that May is placed as the month with the highest crime rateand an increase of 16% compared to the previous month (April).

“During the month of May, two thousand 472 intentional homicides were registered in the country, this is an increase of 16 percent in this crime compared to the month of April. These figures are undoubtedly the result of a strategy that does not work, that has not produced results and that must be rectified”, he stated.

Through its Coparmex signalthe business leader called for the federal government to recognize the flaws in the current strategy and “make the necessary changes to confront criminal organizations in a coordinated manner between federal and state forces and to undertake, without delay, the rescue of the municipal and state police corporations, as well as prosecutors and the penitentiary system.”

Mexico “cannot and should not be adrift in terms of security, which is why it is urgent and essential to implement an effective, coordinated and responsible strategy to reduce security rates,” he said.

The country’s employer sector considered it urgent to address and curb the growing insecurity, since according to the report of the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP) corresponding to the month of April, Michoacán, Guanajuato, State of Mexico, Baja California, Jalisco and Sonora, concentrate 49% of intentional homicides in the entire country.

The report also reveals that entities such as Colima, Zacatecas Y Lower California, are the ones with the highest homicide rate per 100,000 inhabitants. While Colima has had an increase of 53% in the victims of intentional homicide compared to the same period in 2021.

The Coparmex He listed the increase that has been registered in recent months in almost all crimes in Mexico, especially homicides, which shot up 16% in May compared to April, and demanded that the federal government implement a security strategy that does not tolerate, but that it assumes its responsibility to enforce the law and confront criminal organizations in a coordinated manner.

Only with certainty, Mexico will be attractive for national and foreign investors without taking into account that this contributes to the reconstruction of the social fabric so that we live in a country with legality, justice and peace, stated the president of the Coparmex.
