The President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, on Monday during his press conference sent a message to criminal groups that are delivering pantries in marginalized areas of the country due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
“That does not help, it helps that they leave their bravado, it helps that they have love for their neighbor, it helps, that they do not harm anyone, it helps that they do not continue to face and sacrifice, it helps that they think of the suffering of the mothers of the victims, who do not come to think like the potentate who thinks with alms, who is already forgiven, that does not help ”, expressed the Mexican president.
The president explained that, despite the health emergency in Mexico due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, there is still a serious homicide problem in the country.
“We continue to have problems with homicides, even because this coronavirus situation exists, they have calmed down, so do not come now, we are delivering pantries, nothing to give groceries, better let him down, and think of your families, yourself, those who are engaged in these activities if you are listening to me, you have to have love of life, life is the most sublime is a blessing, then take care of ourselves, to take care of our own lives and the lives of others, not distribute pantries ”.
He added that people will continue to be supported so that they do not lack anything, as well as giving alternatives to those who “are in bad steps” and have not committed serious crimes, so that they have alternatives and are not forced to commit crimes.
“Also tell people that we are going to continue supporting, so that they do not lack anything, and also to those who are in bad steps, tell them that they tooOn everything that they have not committed serious crimes, that they do not take the step and that later, after we pass this difficult situation, we are going to give them options, alternatives so that they can rejoin public life and be good people, that they are back with their families, that they are happy, that they are not forced to harm anyone “López Obrador indicated.

We will continue helping, everyone, but with preference for the humble people... How much or little we have is going to be distributed better and always with justice and justice is to give more to those who have less “, manifested.

Narcos take advantage of coronaviruses in Mexico to distribute pantries and fight territory
He The Gulf Cartel, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, the Sinaloa Cartel, Los Viagras. Criminal organizations that have spread terror for years in Mexico are now taking advantage of the coronavirus pandemic to dispute territories with pantries for vulnerable populations.
Videos of armed men circulating on social networks distributing help with their cartel logos printed on bags or food boxes. The drug traffickers, who typically benefit from the distribution of just a few in vulnerable populations, have been involved in various alterations since The COVID-19 pandemic broke out in the country.
He Gulf Cartel delivered groceries with basic products to the population of Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas.
“Gulf Cartel in support of C.D. Victory. Señor 46 Vaquero ”, was read on each package. A few days later, the distribution of provisions continued in rural communities of Matamoros.
Practice seeks to win the support of the population, but also show strength to enemies and dispute the square.
Following the strategy of the Gulf Cartel, Evaristo Cruz, alias “El Señor 46”, responsible for sending pantries, is not an operator of the criminal organization in Ciudad Victoria, but in Matamoros, so supplies would have been a challenge to drug traffickers in the capital of Tamaulipasincluding rival groups from the same drug cartel.
In addition, the delivery would not have occurred in the urban area, but in remote areas or invasions such as the Esfuerzo Popular neighborhood, which confirms that it would be a challenge for “El Vaquero”.
Since 2019, Evaristo Cruz, “El Vaquero 46”, appears in the list of the most wanted fugitives of the Tamaulipas Attorney General’s Office. The price for the capture of the criminal leader is 2,000,000 pesos.
The issue of delivering food packages is a tactic as old as drug trafficking itself. In Mexico, the hired killers regularly present themselves to the people as “benefactors” and agents of local power, initially without asking for anything in return.
Criminal leaders know well that to “govern” they need to care for the people in their territory, and they do so by exploiting vulnerable situations to their advantage. In each person’s eyes, criminal groups have a thousand and one faces.
He Jalisco New Generation Cartel with several trucks filled the entrances of San Luis Potosi, where he delivered boxes with food in which you could read: “On behalf of his friends CJNG, I support the contingency COVID-19”
The supports were distributed in the areas of Salinas de Hidalgo, Villa de Arriaga, Villa de Reyes, Santa María del Río, Tierra Nueva, Rioverde, Villa de Zaragoza and Soledad de Graciano Sánchez.
A couple of days ago, a similar action carried out in the municipality of Cuautitlán, Jalisco, It also went viral on social networks.
Alejandrina Guzmán, the daughter of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, captured the attention of the country last week, when she announced that she would give “chapodespensas” to older adults who have not received help due to the coronavirus crisis.
“We know that this situation will happen soon, and when this happens we will be able to receive you at our point of sale and at all our national events to be closer to all of you with the best products,” says a statement signed by Alejandrina Guzmán.
Aid distribution was carried out in the area metropolitan of Guadalajara, Jalisco. The dynamic of distribution consists of sending a message to WhatsApp or through Facebook requesting personal help. Similarly, support can be requested for a close person they know with low resources.
In images broadcast on social networks, employees of Alejandrina Guzmán are shown handing out boxes printed with the logo of their brand. The packages contain oils, soups, cookies, paper, tomato, among other products in the basic basket.
The distribution of pantries will extend to other parts of Mexico, which have not yet been disclosed.
