After weeks with no political maps, and with an impending deadline to a week of filings, the political activity has picked up considerably.Full Story
Supplementing the U.S. State Department’s warning about travel to Mexico, Texas authorities issued their own advisory this week, cautioning students against traveling to Mexico during spring break. Department of Public Safety officials discouraged travel even to resort areas, citing statistics that have worsened noticeably over the past several years. In addition to the report that 120 U.S. citizens died in Mexico last year versus 35 in 2007, the advisory detailed other criminal activities that could target Americans, including kidnapping and carjacking. Mexico’s ambassador objected to the advisory, questioning Texas authorities’ conclusions.
