Nuevo Laredo is a failed city under the full control of criminals
In the area, there are criminal checkpoints that carry out robberies of motorists who cross the border.
A family of Mexicans crossing the border to Tamaulipas from the United States experienced a moment of anguish when they were intercepted by a group of hitmen who tried to extort money from them. The events occurred on the Boulevard Colosio road in Nuevo Laredo, in Mexico.
The video shows a gray car without license plates that, at full speed, chases the family car, blocking its way. “Watch out, Osvaldo turn back!” “Who am I calling?” The mother is heard shouting as the husband tries to escape.
Inside the car was a minor who asked her father “What’s wrong? I’m scared”. “Raise the window daughter”, “raise the window”! the woman yelled at her daughter while trying to call the authorities for help.
The family managed to escape from the armed subjects thanks to a cunning maneuver in which the father and driver of the vehicle turns around, getting on the avenue separator, and returning from where they came.
“Calm down, daughters, calm down,” the woman reassures the minors as the car turns against the traffic.
