Students Warned To Avoid Mexico for Spring Break

After an increase in Mexico’s drug violence, the Texas Department of Public Safety wants college students to rethink spring-break plans south of the border.

Public Safety Director Steven McCraw encourage students to stay on the US side of Falcon Lake, a popular fishing and boating spot on the Rio Grande border. According to MSNBC.com, it’s also the same area where David Hartley was shot and killed last September.

“Drug violence has not discriminated — innocent bystanders and people who may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time are among the casualties,” McCraw said in a written statement on Tuesday.

Officials are also warning students to travel with caution in popular destinations, including Cancun and Acapulco, where “various crime problems exist.”
