Travel Safety in Perspective: USA and Mexico

[A]ccording to the FBI, “An estimated 15,241 persons were murdered nationwide in 2009”³ in the United States of America.

Officially, 111 U.S. citizens were killed in Mexico last year, a third in just two cities. Almost all of them were involved in illicit vocations, usually the trafficking of guns, drugs, or people across the border. This is 111 out of close to 8 million visitors, with nearly 1 million of those being part- or full-time residents choosing Mexico over the U.S. or Canada.
