(CNN)—Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, made its own history Tuesday as its homicide rate reached 3,000 deaths for the year — ten times the number of killings annually that the border city counted just a few years ago.
With two weeks left in the year, 2010 is now the deadliest year Juárez has ever seen, a spokesperson for the Chihuahua state attorney general’s office told CNN.
Yikes, it is completely understood, why Americans would have concerns about safety in Juárez based on their tainted past. Did you know since 2011 Juárez very quickly turned around their reputation?
They worked extremely hard to make their border town safe. Massive purges of corrupt officials took place as well as direct actions by the federal government to catch and imprison high-level criminals by bringing in the Mexican army.
Unfortunately, homicides exist everywhere in the world, yet in Juárez, they are at a fraction of what they were in the city’s most violent year of 2010. Juárez is now safer than many U.S. cities, especially for tourists, and even more so, for dental tourists through the program of Beyond Borders Dental. The border crossing is highly secured while everyday U.S. and Mexican citizens exchange in this commute, whether it be U.S. residents working in Juárez, or Mexican students attending U.S. schools.
