The elder daughter of US President Barack Obama is spending her springbreak in the historic Mexican city of Oaxaca in the company of 12 friends, a state police official said.
"We are here to block access to the hotel by other people and escort the vehicles that are carrying the visitors to tourism sites," the police official told AFP under the condition of anonymity.
Malia Obama and her friend are guarded by 25 US Secret Service agents as well as Mexican police, the official noted.

Lots of honkies in those photos.
It is nice to be the king’s daughter.
I thought that the State Dept was issuing warnings against going to Mexico right now. But it is fine to have the Obama’s daughter go down with a herd of SS agents to guard her and her friends.
Arm criminals in Mexico, then send your daughter there to vacation?
Wow. Just wow.
(Some animals are more equal than others.)
Like mother, like daughter ... you poor stupid tax payers!
What a sad joke this administration has been.
12 is college ager?
Where's the nekkid boozing?
zero is the sorriest POS to EVER land on our shore.
At least she’s having a blast! (Facepalm)
Malia Obama guarded by 25 Secret Service agents on spring break in Mexico
Barack Obama’s eldest daughter is spending her springbreak in the historic Mexican city of Oaxaca in the company of 12 friends - and 25 Secret Service agents.
as Mexican police, the official noted.
The group, which arrived in Oaxaca Saturday, has already visited the architectural zone of Mitla and the tree of El Tule believed to be one thousand years old.
The sightseeing plan also includes visits to Monte Alban known for its archeological research sites and Oaxaca’s famous artisan quarters.
The Obamas can be fiercely protective of their daughters’ privacy, complaining if the girls are photographed while out on their own.
But they’ve been more than willing to keep bringing them up in the national conversation and to keep them in the minds of voters as the general election approaches.
Without the huge entourage nobody would know who she was. Duh.
Good Lord!! I thought Edna Mae Oliver was dead!
And honey, don’t forget to bring back the coke.
Now can we slam them?
I know .. training for the entitled ...
Errands are calling my name, and a reminder that we know comments need to be tempered, even as we seethe. She’s but
a child, and being allowed a luxe life that’s directed by the actual culprits. There is apparently no end to the expectations and fulfillment of their grandeur.
Obama Sale of First Family Photo Tests Campaign Rules
A portrait of the president, first lady and their daughters taken in the Oval Office by an official White House photographer is prominently featured on Obama-Biden buttons for $5 apiece, and in an online campaign ad asking voters to join our campaign.
Its the first time this election cycle that images of Sasha and Malia Obama have been used by the presidents re-election team after years of careful control over their public use.
But more remarkable may be the legal and ethical questions raised by use of the photo, which was originally taken and published at taxpayer expense and for which political and commercial use is expressly prohibited.
So there’s 12 “friends” and 25 Secret Service agents. So are any parents on this trip, or is the SS babysitting?
Wonder if we’re paying the freight for the 12 friends as well.
I don’t like it when details concerning the activities of the USSS are made public. Of course they are there, but what good comes from identifing the number of agents. This is not cool, no matter who is the President.
I can’t afford to take my kids on a vacation and they do
this.... How much is this costing the tax payer?
God please give these people their walking papers!
“It is nice to be the kings daughter.”
She is going to be as ugly as her mother. Bushy eybrows and moustache included.
Edna was prettier and had a fuller figure.
My first thoughts as well. Where are the chaperones? Who lets their kid go to Mexico with no parents? Shouldn’t there be a law against that?
Panama City’s not good enough for her.
She is 13 years old for cryin’ out loud............ Why is she not spending spring break with her parents like normal 13yo do?.............oh never mind.
My husband’s job won’t let him take the time off right now, so he is “shipping” me and our 13yo daughter to my father for Easter and she will be amply protected as my father is retired NYPD — the difference of course is WE ARE PAYING FOR OUR TRIP. Oh wait, it isn’t different is it, as we are also paying for her trip and protection..........facepalm.
I was thinking the same thing. The poor girl is really homely.
And I really feel sorry for that Secret Service agent and his colleagues. Can you imagine what it’s like being trapped guarding that many teenage girls for a week?
Even a one night sleepover is enough to drive us around the bend here LOL.
This would make a good series of campaign commercials....Show Moochelles/Barky/Daughters vacations then some people at a job..
I think she takes after her mother with her” hate whitey” attitude.
Saw a campaign banner at the top of Yahoo with the whole family. Part of the re-election campaign for the “good family man”...
I agree with other posters-—why would a 12 year old need a “spring break”???
They probably sent grandma Robinson along as the chaperone. I’m sure she needs a break from that”awful” WH.
who’s the responsible adult?
Probably end up marrying a Kennedy. Or Ellen Degeneras’ daughter.
I cant afford to take my kids on a vacation and they do
this.... How much is this costing the tax payer?
Very little. The Obamas will refund the cost as they do on all the vacations that are not official trips. Why some of you don’t get that is beyond me. They used to say the same thing about the Bush’s and Clinton’s. There are very strict rules on federal government travel. If you read the federal travel guidelines you would know. It is in the FTR manual.
I don’t like the idea of the SS in the first place.
The United States of America has a detailed line of succession of the Executive Branch’s Chief Executive. The President is neither a King nor Nobleman, he/she is a lowly public servant who should be in constant fear of those he/she is governing.
Wilson first started the “President is king crap” and the monsters have just gotten worse.
A very basic set of security measures of course should be provided, but not at the expense of the individual’s basic rights to FREELY travel/protest/assemble.
How unfortunate, especially since white liberal guilt got her into the White House.
It makes me feel good to know I’m paying for the obama kids’ leisure time when I can’t even take my kids to Mcdonalds..
