Tijuana Mexico Crime

Jenny asks…

Where is the best place to be a Pro-Wrestler?

I’ve thought about it, and the 3 possibilities for me are:
1. USA – Where at the moment, wrestling is considered by most as a joke.
2. Japan – Where wrestling is considered an actual sport, and is very respected.
3. Mexico – I don’t have much on this one.
NOTE: I’m nervous about going to Mexico because in Chris Jericho’s book, he says that he was almost killed 3 times.

Tijuana answers:

Mexico is home to the wonderful Lucha Libre but Mexico is also a dangerous country to be in because it is a home of major Drug Cartels, especially in the Tijuana area, Mexico City and Ciudad Juarez areas, lots of Drug busts, violence and crime. But it depends where in Mexico you are, cities like Yucatan and Ixtapa are safe places most of the time. So I’d stay out of Mexico for the time being Japan is one of the places in the World where Wrestling is taken seriously, and all matches are entertaining. The USA has some good wrestling schools, it also has Chikara and wrestling schools run by some Hall of Famers.

If I were you I would start off in the USA, depending where you live you might afford to go to Japan but like I said start off in America then you could go to Japan but Japan is a difficult place to navigate around.

Daniel asks…

Where is the most dangerous area in Mexico and why?

Tijuana answers:


In almost every respect, if you don’t go into neighborhoods your gut instinct tells you you should not be in, you will be perfectly safe.

For instance… Tijuana gets a bad rap; but I drive through Tijuana all the time and have never had a single issue. I shop, dine, visit friends, go to movies… Absolutely no problem. But I have noticed areas that I was glad to be in a car and moving through… Not walking through at night. The government is making great efforts to insure the safety of visitors, and the gangsters have also seen that it’s best to avoid tourists.

The State Department says to stay in business or tourist areas. Sounds like good advice to me… And I live in Baja full-time.

Actually… I follow that advice anywhere in the world… And it is good advice in London as well as Mexico City.

That does not mean that crimes don’t occur. There are still pick-pockets in crowds and car thieves at night. Be careful and use common sense.


George asks…

What do you think Immigration Arrests 78 Convicted Illegal Aliens In Colo., Wyo.?

DENVER — In the largest immigration operation in Colorado this year, 78 convicted criminal aliens, immigration fugitives and immigration violators were arrested during a three-day targeted enforcement operation by agents from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office of Enforcement and Removal Operations.

During the operation, which ended Sept. 23, ICE officers located and arrested 64 aliens with prior criminal convictions, including five gang members.

Some of the criminal aliens taken into custody had prior convictions for serious or violent crimes, such as homicide, selling illegal drugs, sexual crimes against children, resisting arrest and assault, vehicle theft and drunken-driving convictions, according to ICE.

In addition, 12 of the individuals ICE officers took into custody were immigration fugitives, aliens with outstanding orders of deportation who had failed to leave the country, the agency said.

Nine of those arrested will be presented to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for prosecution for illegally re-entering the United States after they had been previously deported, which is a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison, according to ICE.

Tijuana answers:

Well Mexico is going to be very upset. In a flabbergasting request, a coalition of Mexican lawmakers has asked the United States to stop deporting illegal immigrants who have been convicted of serious crimes in American courts. The preposterous demand was made at a recent southern California conference in which the mayors of four Mexican cities that border the U.S. Gathered to discuss cross-border issues. The only American mayor who attended the biannual event was San Diego’s Jerry Sanders, evidently because his city hosted it this year at a fancy downtown hotel. Among the cross-border topics that were addressed at the conference was the deportation of Mexican citizens who have committed violent crimes in the U.S. The felons are persona non grata in their communities, say the mayors of Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez, Nogales and Nuevo Laredo. They want U.S. Officials to stem the deportation of such convicts to their cities, according to a local newspaper report that covered the conference.

To support the request, the mayor (Jose Reyes Ferriz) of Mexico’s most violent city, Ciudad Juarez, pointed out that of 80,000 people deported to his community in the past three years nearly 30,000 had committed serious crimes in the U.S. Around 7,000 had served sentences for rape and 2,000 for murder. The criminal deportees have contributed to the escalating drug-cartel violence in his city, Mayor Ferriz said, so he wants the U.S. To make other arrangements when prison sentences are completed.

If this seems unbelievable, consider that a few years ago Mexico’s government formally complained that too many Mexicans had been repatriated from the U.S. And that the entire country was overwhelmed with demands for housing, jobs and schools. Various Mexican legislators publicly chastised the U.S. For sending illegal immigrants back, explaining that the country could not accommodate the “repatriated.”

The Obama Administration seems to be heeding to Mexico’s request by openly halting the deportation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. Additionally, the administration has a “backdoor amnesty” plan to legalize millions of undocumented aliens in case Congress doesn’t pass legislation to do it.

These ‘people’ have the unmitigated gal to demand we stop deporting ‘Mexican criminals’ back to Mexico, while in the same breath they scream and holler that we don’t have the right to convict and punish ‘Mexican citizens’ in our court system.
