The Need to Help Central America

After expressing concern about the lack of American attention to Central America despite its grave security problems (which are in many nations far worse than in Mexico), Jorge Montaño asks for more effort from the Mexican government:
The government of our country must make an effort to recover control of the southern border. This wold be a historic contribution that no other government has attempted with determination. It is a priority to exercise the force of the state in this territory that is today dominated by organized crime, where chaos and corruption of authorities prevails. Likewise, it has the responsibility to develop new common strategies with the countries of the isthmus, through agile mechanisms. There is a capacity to transmit regional objections in the European Union and the United States, with arguments that convince the legislators, executives, and NGOs. Nothing will be possible if they don't understand that immediate action is needed.
