It is safer to fly into the country than drive .
Driving from Laredo you run a gauntlet of criminals and police . Both looking to benefit from your expense . Cross the border and try not to stop ..... Only at busy gas stations and coffee houses until deep into Mexico past Saltillo. Most of the crime is happening between the border and that point. The media coverage is tilted to scare people from going into Mexico. They prefer that people keep their vacation dollars and spend them here at home . You read some of the stuff that has happened on the Texas border and its easy for them to make a case.
I wish things would hurry up and settle down.
