Criminal groups from the Tierra Caliente region of Michoacán make ditches on roads in the municipality of Aguililla, to prevent the passage of members of the Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG).

With heavy machinery, criminals remove the asphalt, with a duration of just a few minutes, and when the police arrive, the damage is done.

That region has been blocked, so vehicles cannot travel on the highway that leads from Aguililla to the Michoacan coast.

With the destruction of roads, the inhabitants of several municipalities suffer the consequences because the supply of basic food and medicine is disrupted.

And even in this first stage of vaccination against covid-19 in older adults, in Michoacán municipalities were not considered as Aguililla, Tepalcatepec and Coalcomán, where crime has made ditches.

The strategies of the state Secretary of Public Security (SSP) have not prevented criminal hands from destroying several highways with impunity.

During the past months, the struggle between United Cartels and CJNG It has generated violence and insecurity in that region of Tierra Caliente.
