Child abuse ...
I agree. I had a friend at work who is Mexican but here legally. She once told me she was flying home to see her extended family and it sounded like she would be back at her folks’ the same day.
Oh, no, they would not drive home that night. Too dangerous.
Other friends have talked about how bad it is with teh Narcos in charge. Some of my kids’ friends with family in Mexico are not allowed to hike or ride around the grandparents’ ranch — the kids have to stay in the yard now because of crime.
And some parents send young children, babies and toddlers into that? Into a lion’s den of murder, theft, corruption, abuse?
The drug trade has distorted latin america’s economies. It may never improve.
