Rodríguez is the fourth journalist killed in the last two months in Mexico, where organized crime and endemic corruption have contributed to the country’s status as one of the most dangerous for journalists.
Reporter gunned down in La Paz - Mexico’s Human Rights Commission (CNDH) condemned the killing of a police reporter in the state capital city of the southern Baja peninsula, La Paz, Mexico.
This was the latest in a string of journalist killed with a possible connection to their reporting.

Crime experts have estimated that narco-violence could account for up to half of the overall numbers.
Murders rose in 25 out Mexico’s 31 states in January compared to the same month last year, with the worst violence concentrated in Guerrero, Baja California Sur and Colima.
More and more people are being murdered in Mexico. Last year, there were 20,792 homicides in Mexico — a 22% increase over 2015, and a 35% jump over 2014.
This year has seen an unprecedented uptick in violence, with federal statistics showing nearly 2,000 people killed in the first month of 2017 — more than in any January since federal officials began releasing crime data in the 1990s.

The violence has become so normalized, most killings don’t make headlines. Even as the murders rise, there is little outrage among the Mexican public.

El Sudcaliforniano newspaper report state that tour operators experience 30% lower as average American tourists numbers.
This is due to the fear to be mistreated in retaliation for the immigration policy of US president Donald Trump.
This is the observation based on statements by visitors made to tour guides and boat operators.
Abel Morán, Coordinator of Tourist Services of the operator of the ejido Benito Juárez, which offers walks through this whale sanctuary located in the Biosphere Reserve of Vizcaíno, complain that so far there is no government effort to address this perception problem.

Customers are canceling Mexico trips, agency group reports according to Travel Weekly, a travel industry ezine. Eight percent of MAST Travel Network agents have clients who have recently canceled trips to Mexico, according to a member survey.
The intensifying issues of immigration, the border wall, and trade are going to cause some customers to think twice about a vacation in Mexico if they feel they are not welcome.
The survey was conducted last week, and 166 members of the network responded.
Of the agents who reported clients that had canceled Mexico trips in the previous two weeks, 20% said they rebooked another destination, and 80% said their clients postponed traveling.

There are plans revealed - how far they are progressed is not clear, (we will investigate), to apply a 350,- pesos tax per person for visiting foreigners. In the report is no real plausible justification other as "tax is applied in many tourist destinations in the world".
Pablo Partida Escobosa, presidente del Consejo Coordinador Empresarial (Business Coordinating Council of La Paz) does support this motion.

This additional fee/tax slapped onto foreign tourists should benefice "substantive items that are directly related to tourism, especially in public security"
It is planned to "hide" this fee in airline- or cruise-ship fares.

Public security problems are a Mexican problem and need to be addressed by Mexico and not to be outsourced to visitors that bring revenue to the country already.

Very unwise motion of "creative financing" that has a high potential to back-fire and worsen the already tight situation to "sell" Baja California Sur up-road.
