The administration of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador once again exceeded 30,000 murders in one year, registering 29,675 victims of intentional homicide and 848 of femicide in 2023, which gives a fatal toll of 30,523 victims in the country, an average of 84 daily.

It should be remembered that femicides are also homicides, but they are classified by gender.

In total, López Obrador’s six-year term has accumulated 166,193 murders and 4,892 femicides since December 2018, according to figures from the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP), with 2019 being the most violent on record with 34,720 intentional deaths and 970 femicides.

2020 follows with 35,545 victims; 2021, 34 thousand 379; 2022, 31 thousand 954; 2023, 30 thousand 523.

However, the Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection (SSPC), Rosa Icela Rodríguez Velázquez, boasted this Tuesday a 20 percent decrease in the crime of intentional homicide since the beginning of the current government and until December 2023.

“We see very clearly that while in Felipe Calderón’s period, there was an increase of 192.8 percent and in Peña Nieto’s period there was a 59 percent increase, in the current administration we are heading downwards with a reduction of less than 20 percent in intentional homicides,” said Rodríguez Velázquez.

When presenting the crime incidence figures for the end of 2023 at the conference of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the official highlighted that December 2023 recorded 2,315 murders, the lowest in the last seven years.

He indicated that Guanajuato, State of Mexico, Baja California, Chihuahua, Jalisco, and Michoacán accounted for 46.8 percent of the victims of intentional homicide committed in the country last year.
