Tijuana Turbulence? U.S. Consulate Delivers Major Warnings For Americans

The U.S. Consulate in Tijuana issued a warning to citizens and government workers to flee the area as violence and disturbance broke out.

In Tijuana, Mexicali, Rosarito, Ensenada, and Tecate, there is intense police activity, roadblocks are being put up, and vehicles are being set burned, according to a tweet from the U.S. Consulate.

All U.S. federal employees have been told to stay indoors for the time being.

According to the Times of San Diego, the conflict between the Sinaloa Cartel, once headed by notorious Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, and Los Mexicles on Thursday in a Ciudad Juarez prison escalated to a riot that left two people dead and 16 injured.

Later, the violence spilled over onto Juarez’s streets, when gang members murdered nine more victims, the majority of whom were citizens.

Six accused Mexicles members were detained by police early on Friday morning with help from the Army and National Guard, according to deputy security minister Ricardo Mejia.

This is said to have exacerbated the violence and panic that have now spread to Baja and led to the refuge being set up.

As violence spread throughout her state, Baja Governor Marina del Pilar tweeted, “I condemn the violent incidents that transpired this afternoon in our state. It is crucial to maintain calm. We will keep you informed.”

Montserrat Caballero, the mayor of Tijuana, pleaded with people who are using violence to stay away from defenseless pedestrians.

Vice Chair of San Deigo County Nora Vargas tweeted, “I urge our binational residents to exercise caution, heed official advice, and refrain from unnecessary travel so that authorities can carry out their duties and ensure safety. My heart goes out to everyone affected by the incidents.

The U.S. Consulate is still under lockdown at this time, and Tijuana’s streets remain deserted because residents are concerned for their safety.
