U.S. State Department Warns of Mexican Violence

Rio Grande Valley natives, Winter Texans and other visitors continue to pour across the border at Nuevo Progreso despite recent drug cartel violence in Reynosa and reports of violence in Matamoros. “I suppose Progreso is the safest of the three,” New Hampshire native Betty Robertson said. “I haven’t heard of anything going on here, but you would never catch me at any of the other two. No sir.”

Harlingen resident Mark Horta, 24, sipped Negra Modelo beer with three friends in one of the strip’s plazas. He said he felt confident in their ability to escape a dangerous situation. “If something went down we would probably just take off running and hide until it’s over,” he said. “We go sometimes (to Reynosa); it’s not even that bad. They have military, too. You just have to be careful.”

But not everyone agrees with Horta’s decision to brave Mexico. Ray Robinson, a Winter Texan at the Sunshine RV Resort in Harlingen, said he wouldn’t consider crossing into any Mexican city until the threat of violence has blown over. “I wouldn’t go across there right now for anything,” he said. “We’re going to wait until we go home in May to go across for medicine. “We hope it will be quieted down … but if not,we may not go then either.”
