I think as of today (1/9) it's 20. I have the upmost of confidence that Juarez, as a city, will find a way to shatter the mark set in 2008 and will easily top 2000+ in 2009. I used to go there, but no more.

Though I've not seen statistics on your question specifically, I'd take a wild guess and say yes. There were over 1600 murders in Juarez last year, or at least 4 murders a day, or over 130 per month. BTW, only a few solved, that is astounding in of itself.

The fact that they've 8000 troops there now tells you something. I'm surprised I don't hear more about it in the media (US), if this was any other city in the US, it would be non stop 24/7 reporting. There must be lots of money in Juarez due to the drugs for it to deteriorate this much.

Are there still queues at the crossings? I recall the traffic used to be horrendous, I am curious to know if there are still long lines for people entering Juarez.

800

Have not updated in a while, but just checked, and the rate is about 8 or so murders a day so on track to meet last years number of 1600, however, there are about 5K Mexican troops there now! Imagine what the numbers may have been without the troops? WOW.

Mitt Romney's cousin has a ranch near Janos, Mexico (on the way to Casas Grandes) . Last week he, his wife, and a grandchild were kidnapped and held for 2 days until a ransom was paid. I'd love to visit the Paquime ruins but that will have to wait until times are safer. The mysteries of Paquime - DesertUSA

I am surprised that the many killings haven't yet depleted the ranks of the cartels and that they can still operate. Some of killings however are of 'innocents' or relatives of those who wouldn't give in to extortion attempts.

The army does make me feel safer. Soldiers living in barracks are less corruptable and face less pressure than policemen who have to live in the neighborhood with their families.

The Mexican side facilities and security have been beefed up at the free bridge. They are also stopping cars heading into the US. We've found the Mexican soldiers (young kids to me) to be very polite and respectful.
