Alfonso Durazo has had a rough month

On Tuesday, Security Minister Alfonso Durazo traveled to Sonora to face one of the bloodiest massacres registered in Mexico: the murder of three women and six children. He left for Sonora after appearing before the Senate, where opposition members gifted him a Pinocchio doll for the “lies” spread after the failed operation to arrest Ovidio Guzmán. Besides Durazo, Navy Minister José Rafael Ojeda and General Homero Mendoza Ruiz also traveled to Sonora to work on the LeBarón case. We've been told Durazo has been busy with all tragedies in Aguililla, Tepochica, Culiacán, and the LeBarón family.

During the Mancera administration, one of the tasks of the digital expert was to attack Marcelo Ebrard for the alleged anomalies in the construction of the 12 Metro line. After she was hired by the Economy Ministry, some are wondering if this ministry will attack the Foreign Affairs Minister.
