WESLACO - Rio Grande Valley police departments no longer will have direct access to their counterparts on the south side of the border.
The Mexican government said it will limit the information it shares with U.S. law enforcement agencies.
Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's administration said all information will be disseminated through the ministry of interior in Mexico City.
The announcement is a 180-degree turn from the open dialogue both nations had on law enforcement.
The change likely will delay investigations Valley lawmen said.
"It'll still trickle down to us. It might be a little slower, but we'll still get the information we need," Rio Grande City Assistant Police Chief Noe Castillo said.
Castillo said they will utilize community resources to get the information they need.
A businessman who runs a produce company in Hidalgo and Reynosa said the change is troublesome.
He said the situation along the border is bad enough now, and could get worse with the change. He said it may force him to go out of business.
How bout the limit the number of citizens they share with us.
Pull back the money. Recommend that Americans not travel to Mexico. When I was there in 2009 I saw cops, who are equipped and uniformed exactly like our cops, pull over Americans and demand $50 or they’d take them to jail.
You can’t trust the cops or the Army or the civilians. I stayed with Mexicans and they drove me in Mexican cars, but I saw enough US cars being pulled that I suspect corruption is the norm.
For several days I was in a resort restaurant at the same time each day. Each day a cop showed up with a clipboard and the manager signed it. I asked the manager why. He said, “Well, it used to be that cops would come in and kidnap a customer and the customer would just disappear. Now they have every business owner sign each day that the cops didn’t take anybody from his business yesterday. It’s much safer now.”
Obama cant get along with anybody.
He campaigns well though.
Like they shared real info. sarc
Still will not stop Marco Rubio and the Gang of Ocho America Haters from pushing Illegal Alien Amnesty
