Mexico City is known for being a haven for drug traffickers, but there is one thing it has not had in recent years: a government.
The government of President Enrique Peña Nieto has been under siege since 2014, when he announced he was resigning in the face of an ongoing investigation into alleged corruption.
Peña has faced multiple allegations of corruption, but his most serious accusations have focused on the drug trade.
In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Peña said he would not resign, despite mounting pressure from his party and the opposition to do so.
“I would never resign.
I would not quit.
We have the support of all Mexicans,” Peña told the AP.
“The government of Mexico is under attack.”
Peña is the first sitting president in the modern era to have to step down amid allegations of political corruption, though former President Felipe Calderon resigned after a wave of corruption scandals in his administration.
While Calderon was ousted in the 2014 coup attempt, Peñas presidency has seen him survive the investigations of the Attorney General’s Office and the Federal Police, which have been probing the drug cartels that dominate Mexico’s criminal economy.
“This is a huge problem,” Peña said of the cartels.
“We need to find the perpetrators.
And we need to arrest them and put them in prison.”
Peñanos party is currently under investigation by a congressional commission, but has not been charged.
He has dismissed the investigation as a politically motivated smear campaign, though it was launched in May 2016 after he failed to respond to a request from Congress to provide more information.
Peñanos supporters, however, say that his government is at the center of the drug problem, and that he is not accountable for it.
“In the last two years, there has been a drastic increase in the number of murders of police officers, and it is not only against the drug traffickers,” said Francisco Rodriguez, an activist who heads a group called Información de Información y Comunidades (Information, Communication, and Democracy) that has campaigned for the presidency of Peña.
“They want to know why he’s not doing something about it.”
Rodriguez said the drug cartel leaders in Mexico City are being paid a total of more than $500,000 a month.
“Peña is not being held accountable for the drug war, but for the crimes that are being committed against the people,” he said.
“He is not the president, he is the drug lord.”
In 2016, Peres presidential office was raided by the Drug Enforcement Agency, but the president said that he would leave office, after which he left the country to seek treatment.
Peres later announced that he was on a private jet.
Mexico has the highest homicide rate in the world, and drug cartels are responsible for about 70 percent of the countrys murder rate.
The president’s office did not respond to repeated requests for comment on the allegations.
In his book, The End of the Line: Mexico, Drugs, and the War on Drugs, journalist Daniel Pérez said Peña was “the biggest drug trafficker in Mexico” and “one of the most influential” politicians in the country.
Péres claims that Peña and his political allies have become the target of a widespread campaign to undermine Peña’s authority.
“Some of Peñenos political enemies are also now being targeted in a nationwide campaign to discredit the president’s presidency,” Pérez wrote.
“On March 23, a group of Peres supporters in Mexico was shot dead by unknown assailants outside the presidential palace.
The authorities are now investigating more than 2,000 of those killings as a criminal act.” “
As of March 25, authorities had identified over 3,000 people who had been killed in violence since Peña came to power.
The authorities are now investigating more than 2,000 of those killings as a criminal act.”
The United States and Mexico have different laws regarding drug trafficking, but Peña remains in charge of the law enforcement and judicial systems.
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, which has monitored Mexico since the early 2000s, has said that Peños government has shown itself to be “extremely corrupt and ineffective.”
According to the group, there is evidence that “Peñas government has failed to implement a number of key anti-drug policies, and has effectively blocked the implementation of several measures intended to reduce drug trafficking.”
The office has also highlighted Peña as a leader of the criminal organization known as La Familia.
Peño has also been accused of being the main beneficiary of narco-trafficking.
In 2016 and 2017, Mexican prosecutors launched an investigation into a drug cartel, the Sinaloa Cartel, that was allegedly involved in drug trafficking and kidnapping.
In December, the Mexican government convicted three members of the Sialoa Cartels, and in April, authorities arrested an additional member of the group. In
