NPT Drug War: LA Times: Death threat: “When they tell you that in Juarez, you better believe it.”
From the LA Times:
Business owners, law enforcement officers, journalists and other professionals are among those seeking asylum in the U.S. — even when it means sitting in jail.
“It’s very hard to accept that I can never return to Mexico, but that is the lamentable reality,” said Emilio Gutierrez Soto, a regional newspaper reporter for El Diario in northern Chihuahua state who has an asylum request pending.
Another reporter, lapolaka.com founder Jorge Luis Aguirre, is sheltered in El Paso.
“I was happy in Mexico; I never intended to leave, until they vowed to kill me,” Aguirre said in an interview at an El Paso cafe. “When they tell you that in Juarez, you better believe it.”
