By: Anna EberhardtTravel restrictions in the southern Mexican state of Cancun have made it a challenge for the thousands of people from around the country who have chosen to travel to the country.
In recent weeks, the United States has stepped in to help the Mexican government with its efforts to ease restrictions, but many people have expressed fears about being targeted by authorities and those with ties to organized crime groups.
On Sunday, President Enrique Pena Nieto said in a press conference that the country will begin a process of allowing the travel of people who do not pose a security risk.
“We have the right to impose restrictions on those who do what they are supposed to do,” he said.
“But I can assure you that we are not going to impose these restrictions on you, because you are people who live in a civilized society.
I assure you this.
It is not something we are going to do.”
The Mexican government has been struggling to cope with a wave of attacks in recent weeks targeting security forces and businesses, with several people killed and many more injured.
Many of those affected have been from the region of Tamaulipas, which borders the United State.
The region has been particularly hard hit by the violence.
On Saturday, a man was shot dead at a checkpoint in the state of Tepihu, where border agents are stationed.
He was identified as Juan Francisco Flores, a Mexican national, according to the Mexican military.
On Monday, a police officer was killed and two others were wounded in a shooting on the border city of El Paso, according the state attorney general.
The government has said the violence has forced many people to flee to neighboring states, but there have been reports of people going back to Mexico, including several who had come to the state for medical treatment.
The governor of Córdoba, where Cancuna is located, has said he has received hundreds of calls from people who are afraid to return to the region.
He said that many people in his city are not allowed to travel due to their immigration status.
The governor of Yucatan has said that they are not allowing people who have been living in the region for years to enter the country because of security concerns.
“There are people that have been here for decades who have a visa and they have not been allowed to go.
They are being prevented from coming to Cancún,” he told CNN on Monday.”
We need to find a solution that works for the people of the region, and not only for us,” he added.
In response to questions about the state’s safety, the attorney general’s office issued a statement that said, “We can confirm that in addition to the reports from the Mexican side, the U.S. Embassy has been monitoring the situation closely and has provided support to our government in responding to the crisis.
Our goal is to ensure that all those affected are able to return home safely, and that we protect the safety of all those who may be in need.”
Mexico has said it has detained more than 200,000 people since the violence began, according a Reuters tally, and has responded by providing shelter, food, and other assistance to the hundreds of thousands of victims of the attacks.
