Trump warned Mexico about his latest move

Many have been surprised by the comments made by Donald Trump, who expressed his desire to designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorist groups. Nevertheless, we've been told that on March 12, he already discusses his plan with Breitbart News, a right-wing media outlet. So politicians and a few chancellors surprised by Trump's move, are in fact clueless.

Evo Morales needs funds

The Mexican government is no longer financially supporting former Bolivian President Evo Morales, and his two former cabinet ministers, Álvaro García Linera and Gabriela Montaño. They had been staying at a military facility for two weeks. Now, they have announced that they have left the facility and that they now have to cover their expenses, so they have called on Mexicans and ambassadors to help them. As you might remember, some Morena lawmakers proposed to raise funds for Evo Morales. Nevertheless, the three Bolivians are still being protected by bodyguards.

Pro-Trump governors in Mexico

After Trump announced his intention to designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorist organizations, we've been told that some government officials are upset with Guanajuato governor Diego Sinhué Rodríguez, PAN, after he voiced his support for Trump's plant since a this could end in a U.S. military intervention. We've been told that government officials say PAN governments have been incompetent to pacify their states and how comfortable is it for them that Trump comes to save them from “narco-terrorists.” They also say that for them, any help is good, but it would be better if they read the Constitution and the National Security Law, where foreign intervention is considered as a threat. They say that those who are now asking for U.S. troops, tomorrow could suffer the effects of foreign intervention, such as the ones registered in countries where the U.S. has implemented actions to eradicate terrorists.

Baja California lawmakers could face a trial

Lawmakers were ready to vote the political trial against former Baja California lawmakers, who approved the extension of the governorship for Jaime Bonilla. Nevertheless, PRD coordinator Verónica Juárez postponed this definition because it might have been rejected. Federal lawmakers decided to postpone the voting until the Supreme Court issues a verdict in regards to the Bonilla case so there's enough evidence against Baja California lawmakers.

Is Jaime Bonilla the one?
