México to invest $2 Billion to secure Belize and Guatemala borders

A state of emergency has been declared, travel advisories have been issued and regional beach volleyball championships have been postponed since the massacre in La Libertad, Petén over the weekend. We have been following the story because of the close proximity of Petén to western Belize and possible risks to locals travelling across the border by road. But the province also shares a border with Mexico, which today announced that it is investing two billion dollars to improve its security infrastructure and technology at its borders with both Belize and Guatemala. The upgrades are intended to keep illegal immigrants, goods, drugs and weapons from being smuggled into Mexico. The Interior Minister, José Francisco Blake Mora, says that the Mexican government will collaborate with Guatemala in the fight against criminal gangs as well as to find the persons responsible for the recent murder of twenty-eight persons at Los Cocos farm in Petén.

Where did that money come from?
The article below illustrates the US involvement.
USAID can also be a weapon, it sounds so good when the US describes it but just watch when the US doesn't get its way.

This is a very serious situation for us. Our drug lords here have gotten along and respect each others turf and so, have not had these problems. If Zeta gets pushed into Belize by this new Mx govt effort, we will see a big change in how the drug biz here is conducted. Cross your fingers.
