Along with the head of government of Mexico City, the 21 governors belonging to the Fourth Transformation “energetically” rejected and condemned the military intervention of the United States with the ” excuse of confronting Mexican cartels”.

By means of an informative letter issued on March 10, the presidents ratified their commitment to the defense of Mexico’s sovereignty, and reiterated the importance of strengthening bilateral understanding and cooperation, but also expressed their support for actions taken by the Federal Government to guarantee and protect the best interests of the State.

Through a statement, the Morenista governors rejected “any statement or action that attempts against our sovereignty and consider it fundamental to understand the problem in all its complexity and ask them to recognize that the power of drug cartels and other criminal organizations “is based on the massive supply of high-powered weapons from the United States“.

They consider that the proposal is an attack against the country, after Republican legislators in the United States urged the powers of their country to declare organized crime cartels as terrorist organizations, which has been interpreted as an attempt to militarize the country.

The Republican congressmen note that “it must be accepted that the conduct of certain pharmaceutical companies and various sectors of the U.S. health care system play a determining role in the opioid crisis and epidemic taking place in the neighboring nation”.

Stating that all these factors “are a structural part of the problem that must be addressed in a comprehensive manner, seriously and, above all, with great responsibility and cooperation“, the governors of the states of Tamaulipas, Baja California, Sonora, Sinaloa, Campeche, Guerrero, Quintana Roo, Tlaxcala, Chiapas, Colima, Morelos, Nayarit, Oaxaca, Puebla, San Luis Potosi, Tabasco, Veracruz and Zacatecas emphasized.

They alluded that during 2021 more than 5,000 kg of fentanyl were seized on their way to the United States, according to data from the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, 86.3% of which were mainly transported by US citizens.

“In this context, the heads of the executive powers of the states governed by representatives of the Fourth Transformation, we express our full support to the federal government and reiterate our commitment to the frontal fight against organized crime organizations that operate transnationally and profit, both in Mexico and in the United States and other countries,” added the Morena leaders.

They called for a joint effort to provide economic opportunities so that young people do not join organized crime and to address the phenomenon with a focus on public health, not violence and military invasion.
