"All of the major smuggling areas leaning into California, Nogales, Arizona, El Paso, Texas, and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas are fully controlled by the cartels. "

"Thus, we now see from an internal document of the Mexican government an admission that Mexico has essentially lost control over every important populated area in Mexico outside Mexico City and a few others, and particularly the most sensitive areas of the U.S.-Mexican border."

We should start by defining “run by the cartels”
Drug dealers do not “run “ the Country
I would think, without any sources, that 100 % of the drug business are controlled by drug cartels (drug dealers) and 100% of the deals take place in populated areas

What does "Many Mexicans trust the cartel more than thier [sic] own government officials" even mean. I don't know any Mexicans who —trust— either one.

Some one on this forum said it was the safest... I do not believe it but really it is all relative and it does not matter.. It is safe if you are ok and it is not if you get in trouble..

I read in some paper Chiapas was the safest, pretty funny since many people think twice about going to some places..If you are minding your own business and no one want your stuff it is safe, otherwise you are dead.. Ask the 2 bicyclists who got killed last year.. By the way no one ever got caught on those murders...there are lots of assault on that road and yet some paper publishes that it is the safest state.. It s all BS...
