"The LPGA has canceled the $1.3 million Tres Marias Championship in Mexico due to concerns over drug violence, the Orlando Sentinel reported Wednesday."
"Though no official announcement was made by the women's golf tour, the tournament — which was to be held April 21-24 in Morelia — is no longer listed on the schedule."
The annual Linares chess tournament, usually played around the end of February, takes its name from the city of Linares in the Jaén province of Andalusia, Spain, in which it is held. It is sometimes described as the Wimbledon of chess, being one of the strongest annual tournaments held on the chess tour, along with the "Tata Steel" Wijk aan Zee and Dortmund events.
From 2006 through 2008, the first half of the tournament took place in the Mexican city of Morelia. The second half took place in Linares. Consequently the event is sometimes referred to as Morelia - Linares in databases and the like.
In 2009 and 2010 the event took place entirely in Linares.
Mexico is losing tourism in their attempt to carry out US policies. I hope they look at what is happening and make the right choices.

The more the Mexican Government drives their population north, the more of the pie in US cash brought back into Mexico there is to divvy up among the elite classes in Mexico. Anyone who thinks these Mexican drug lords are sitting with piles of dollars sitting around in the villa's is wrong. Banks in Mexico City are busy investing that cash and making dividends on it for themselves. That's including Calderones own family. The gangs that get attacked by government forces are the ones NOT paying enough tribute to the elites in Mexico or the PTB here in the US.
