They murdered two priests, what’s next?


Hector Moctezuma de Leon.

Two priests who are members of one of the most important congregations of the Catholic Church, the Society of Jesus, were murdered in a temple in the town of Cerocahui, Chihuahua; Whats Next? I don’t dare to think what else the organized crime groups that act with great impunity in several regions of the country can do.

We Mexicans do not want this to continue like this, we want the regrets and condolences to end. The last three presidents, Felipe Calderón, Enrique Peña Nieto and the current Andrés Manuel López Obrador reacted to the tragedies, with regrets and condolences to the families of the victims and then nothing happened.

Yesterday, President López Obrador, lamented and mourned again, now for the murder of the priests: Javier Campos and Joaquín Mora, from the Society of Jesus, who had been carrying out pastoral work for many years in Cerocahui, Chihuahua. A fact that has gone around the world and that yesterday Pope Francis expressed his consternation and expressed: “How many murders in Mexico! The Pontiff was very saddened by the murder of his brothers.

The murderer has been located, said the president. Later it was learned that it is José Noriel Portillo, alias “El Chueco” who will surely be arrested in the next few days and until then everything will remain, we will never know the causes of the homicide and whether or not there were intellectual authors; This is how the great crimes are resolved in this administration as they were resolved in the previous ones, halfway or with scapegoats.

Impunity reigns in Mexico and impunity is the mother of all violence. Thanks to impunity, organized crime has grown. According to the study “Mexico: Organizations of Organized Crime and Drug Trafficking”, prepared by the United States Congressional Research Service, in our country there are seven traditional organizations dedicated to international drug trafficking and five smaller ones that fight for territory.

To combat them, the current government has established a strategy of “hugs not bullets” that consists of going to the causes of the problem, which has not produced results, as evidenced by the massacres in the states of Michoacán, Mexico, Zacatecas, Guerrero and now Chihuahua.

A few days ago, the coordinator of the Morena senators called on the legislators to work on the change of strategy in terms of security, which on other occasions social organizations and the business sector have demanded, but in the National Palace they do not see or hear them ; as the “philosopher” of Michoacán would say, Marco Antonio Solís “El Buki” /”Where will we end up”/. I refuse to imagine where we will end up.


The matter of Julián Assange is a problem between the United States government and the founder of WikiLeaks, it is something that does not concern the Mexican government, it is as if President Joe Biden asked Andrés Manuel López Obrador to leave him alone to Emilio Lozoya, isn’t it true that the Mexican government would not accept it? Senators from Morena led by Ricardo Monreal began a series of dialogues with different social sectors in order to collect their concerns to build the legislative agenda that they will present to the Congress of the Union in the next ordinary period of sessions that begins on September 1 next. Yesterday they met with representatives of the INDEX Group of Guanajuato to discuss issues related to the legal certainty of investments and improvements in foreign trade…Mega Blackout in the Yucatan Peninsula that affects 3.4 million people.
