Another failed surgery




Since 2007, Public insecurity in Mexico has steadily grown. The security strategy introduced in Felipe Calderón’s government was maintained and reproduced during the administration of Enrique Peña Nieto and, although the current administration promised to end it and at the same time end with the serious situation of insecurity in the country until now the National Strategy for Public Safety of the Government of Mexico has not improved this situation. Although most of the recommendations from experts and international organizations are aimed at gradually demilitarizing public safety, government decisions seem to do the opposite. An example of this is the agreement issued by the President of the Republic on the National Guard in which the Armed Forces are available permanently to carry out public security MILITARIZATION AND PUBLIC SAFETY tasks for the remainder of the sexennium. This decision is made amid an increase in crime incidences where the homicide numbers are particularly disturbing.
