Cartels have made Mexico’s beach resorts too dangerous to visit, former El Paso U.S. Marshal and retired deputy chief of the El Paso Police Department Robert Almonte says.
“I’m telling people, ‘Don’t go,’ Almonte told Fox & Friends First on Monday, warning that the violent cartels pose a deadly danger to tourists who are merely in the vicinity of the cartels’ actual targets:
“The beach resorts in Mexico, I’m telling people ‘Don’t go.’”
“It’s really dangerous. And, the danger is not that the tourists are going to be targets, because they’re not.
“The danger is that the tourists may be sitting at a table, next to the target, and the cartels go in there and they spray bullets and they don’t care if tourists, innocent people get killed.”
“The latest example is where the cartels went on ski jets and fired a bunch of rounds,” Almonte said, noting that cartels will fire indiscriminately into crowds, just to show that they, not the Mexican government, are in charge:
“That’s a show of intimidation and showing the government, basically, that ‘We’re in control.’ And, that’s the problem: that Mexico can not get a handle on the situation with the Mexican cartels.”
