There’s nothing quite like being a journalist in Mexico. On the one hand, those of us who wake up early enough have the chance every weekday to speak directly to the president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, during his morning news conferences, known as “mañaneras.”
Last April I attended a “mañanera,” one of the morning news conferences the president holds every weekday, for the first time. I asked López Obrador (or AMLO, as he is known) about the incessant violence that has shaken Mexico for decades.
Mexico has become an incredibly dangerous place for Central American immigrants.
THE U.S. GOVERNMENT BETTER FORGET ABOUT ANY KIND OF INTERVENTION IN MEXICO. MIAMI — Mexico should not agree, under any circumstances, to host United States troops — or those from any other country — in its territory. It’s a matter of principle, sovereignty and history.
Five centuries ago, at a spot that is today marked by the intersection of two major streets in downtown Mexico City, the Aztec ruler Montezuma II and the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés met for the very first time. The extraordinary encounter between the New World and the Old took place on Nov. 8, 1519, and its consequences are still being felt today.
Mexicans are tired of the killing. The massacres earlier this year in Uruapan (where 19 people were killed) and Minatitlán (where 14 died) were a mere fraction of the many deadly tragedies that have shattered the nation.
Why does the Mexican government support the Cuban regime? When Cuban officials arrived in Mexico earlier this month, the minister of foreign affairs, Marcelo Ebrard, greeted them with an enthusiastic tweet: “A very warm welcome to President Miguel Díaz-Canel [and his team]. … Welcome to Mexico!!!”
MIAMI — “I’m using Mexico to protect our border.” Millions of Americans didn’t even notice this recent remark made by President Trump. But Mexicans certainly did. They thought Mr. Trump’s words were a blatant attack on their nation’s sovereignty.
MEXICO CITY — The honeymoon is still going strong. Surveys — and his strong support on social media — suggest that millions of Mexicans still back President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (or AMLO, as he’s known) and are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
It’s been just over a year since Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s landslide victory in Mexico’s presidential election, and some Mexicans say they are dismayed by the tough media..
